Valley pseudospin in atomically thin semiconductors has been proposed and pursued as an alternative information carrier to charge.
Carbon nanotubes have reached a quality that allows for stringent tests of theory. Applying high magnetic fields we perform transport spectroscopy on the first excess electron above the band gap. The observed single particle spectra allow to quantitatively probe the fine structure corrections to the simple Dirac Hamiltonian.

Surprising as it might seem, the understanding of the structure of liquid water is still an open subject, one that has kept theorists and experimentalists busy for the last 50 years.
