    Fig.1. A schematic drawing of solution measurement by using fabricated terahertz microfluidic chip. The chip consists of a local THz radiation point source, a single microchannel and a few arrays of split ring resonators. The THz waves are generated by irradiating laser beam from the backside of the crystal and efficiently interact with the solution flowing inside the microchannel. The optical microscope image of fabricated microfluidic chip is also shown. (credit: Osaka University)

    A colored close up of the proximity induced unconventional superconductor 
The aluminum plates were attached to the topological insulator using platinum. The picture (scale bar: 200 nm) shows one of the devices used in the experiment. Because of the stress, induced by various cool downs, a clear buckling feature appears in the nanogap of the device. This modification is causing the characteristics of the superconducting pairs of electron to vary in different directions, a signature of unconventional superconductivity.

    Acclaimed fossils might not depict human evolution

    Humans may have evolved relatively recently from isolated chimpanzees, without formation of any fossils. This would mean that since the time of Darwin…
