    Quantum Hall phases have chiral edge modes, which could be used to explore and exploit the quantum properties of electrons. Interactions in these edge states lead to relaxation and decoherence, hindering any realistic exploitation. Here the authors observe spectroscopically the decay and revival of the excitation created by injection of an electron into the edge mode. Their results confirm phase-coherent transport and quantify the effect of dissipation-induced decoherence.

    The no-signaling principle constrains which multipartite correlations are allowed, but network scenarios considered so far were limited to specific cases. Here, the authors apply inflation technique to the no-input/binary-output triangle network, and show that it admits non-trilocal distributions.

    Designing efficient nonlinear dynamic resonances for weak signal amplification remains a challenge. Here, the authors demonstrate a resonance manipulation strategy able to enhance weak signals in a nonlinear oscillator consisting of an optically-probed driven nano-electromechanical resonator.
