Oil industry experts will discuss market response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, investor reluctance to fund shale operations and OPEC’s production decisions during a June 22 event at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.
A Rice University quantum simulator is giving physicists a clear look at spin-charge separation, a bizarre phenomenon in which two parts of indivisible particles called electrons travel at different speeds in extremely cold 1D wires. The research is published this week in Science and has implications for quantum computing and electronics with atom-scale wires.
