Search and Discovery
Over millions of years a protein that now folds into two stable structures likely favored first one configuration, then the other, before settling on both.
A new strategy for molecular design takes self-assembled materials where they’ve never gone before.
Issues and Events
The past four years saw interference in the scientific process, inaction on climate change, and a weakened federal science workforce. Artificial intelligence and quantum information science benefited.
Integrated quantum-control protocols could bridge the gap between abstract algorithms and the physical manipulation of imperfect hardware.
Since 1951, the Prize of the Three Physicists has been awarded by the École Normale Supérieure in honor of Henri Abraham, Eugène Bloch, and Georges Bruhat—successive directors of the university’s physics laboratory. These are their stories.
