Tiny quantum electronic vortexes in superconductors can circulate in ways not seen before

Within superconductors little tornadoes of electrons, known as quantum vortices, can occur which have important implications in superconducting applications such as quantum sensors. Now a new kind of ...

Electric scooters less popular since introduction of new parking rules

Fewer e-scooters and parking racks a long way from the user’s destination. These may be a couple of reasons why the use of e-scooters has decreased with the introduction of new parking rules last autu...
