Majorana fermions predicted in a superconducting material

MIT physicists propose that a class of superconducting materials can host Majorana fermions near absolute zero, and that their existence can be verified using nuclear magnetic resonance.

Seeing RNA at the nanoscale

MIT researchers have adapted a technique known as expansion microscopy to visualize RNA molecules at high resolution in tissue samples. They have also made the technique easier to use, with off-the-shelf components.
