Phosphorus nutrition can hasten plant and microbe growth in arid, high elevation sites

Glacial retreat in cold, high-altitude ecosystems exposes environments that are extremely sensitive to phosphorus input, new research shows. The finding upends previous ecological assumptions, helps scientists understand plant and microbe responses to climate change and could expand scientists’ understanding of the limits to life on Earth.

Making new layered superconductors using high entropy alloys

Researchers have created new superconductors made of layers of bismuth sulfide and a high entropy rare earth alloy oxyfluoride, containing five different rare earth elements at the same crystallographic site. The new material retains superconducting properties over a wider range of lattice parameters than materials without high-entropy-alloy states. Their work promises an exciting new strategy(…)
