Particle fragmentation plays a major role in carbon sequestration and unusual DNA structures involved in neuron aging

A French-British team led by the Laboratoire d'océanographie de Villefranche-sur-Mer (CNRS/Sorbonne University) has just discovered that a little-known process regulates how the oceans can sequester carbon dioxide (CO2). At the ocean surface, photosynthesis by phytoplankton transforms atmospheric CO2 into organic…

Room-temperature skyrmions in synthetic antiferromagnets, radio emission from a pulsar’s magnetic pole, and a Diels-Alderase reaction for green chemistry

Researchers at the CNRS/Thales/Paris-Sud University led by Nicolas Reyren, Vincent Cros and Albert Fert are the first to have succeeded in stabilizing antiferromagnetic skyrmions in an ordinary material system at room temperature. The new result, reported in Nature Materials 10.1038/s41563-019-0468-3, will be important…
