Physicists create new hybrid material in which superconductivity and magnetism interact via their particle-like excitations

An international team of physicists, led by Research Professor Christos Panagopoulos from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), has created a novel “hybrid” material in which superconductivity and magnetism interact via their particle-like excitations. This breakthrough could form the basis for a new generation of quantum computational hardware.

NTU Singapore scientists design compound that targets enzyme linked to autoimmune disorders and severe COVID-19

When the body detects a pathogen, such as bacteria or viruses, it mounts an immune system response to fight this invader. In some people, the immune system overreacts, resulting in an overactive immune response that causes the body to injure itself, which may prove fatal in some cases. Now, scientists from NTU Singapore have created a compound that could help to reduce this overactivation without impairing the body’s entire immune response.
