The Observation of Topologically Protected Magnetic Quasiparticles

A team of researchers from Tohoku University, J-PARC, and Tokyo Institute of Technology conducted an in-depth study of magnetic quasiparticles called "triplons." The team conducted the study with a low-dimensional quantum magnet, Ba2CuSi2O6Cl2, using neutron inelastic scattering by AMATERAS at J-PARC.

 
Bleach-induced transformation for humidity-durable air filters

A molecule-trapping material that normally degrades in water remains stable after two years of humidity exposure when treated with a common skin bleach.

 
HKBU discovers mechanisms underlying early life stress and irritable bowel syndrome

Researchers from the School of Chinese Medicine at Hong Kong Baptist University have found that the abnormal rise of a soluble protein called Nerve Growth Factor is a key factor linking early life stress to the development of irritable bowel syndrome.
