In partnership with The Estée Lauder Companies.

Publishing online monthly, Nature Astronomy aims to bring together astronomers, astrophysicists and planetary scientists. In addition to the latest advances in research, we offer Comment and Opinion pieces on topical subjects of relevance to our community, including the societal impact of astronomy and updates on telescopes and space missions.

News & Views

The dark side of neutrons    p973
W. Michael Snow

Building the building blocks    pp974 - 975
Isaac Chuang

Connected development    pp975 - 976
Ben D. MacArthur

An inconsistent friend    pp977 - 978
Matthew F. Pusey


Many-body localization and quantum thermalization    pp979 - 983
Ehud Altman

It is the common wisdom that time evolution of a many-body system leads to thermalization and washes away quantum correlations. But one class of system — referred to as many-body localized — defy this expectation.

Does gravity come from quantum information?    pp984 - 987
Xiao-Liang Qi

Recent developments have seen concepts originally developed in quantum information theory, such as entanglement and quantum error correction, come to play a fundamental role in understanding quantum gravity.

Unscrambling the physics of out-of-time-order correlators    pp988 - 990
Brian Swingle


Tunable photonic heat transport in a quantum heat valve    pp991 - 995
Alberto Ronzani, Bayan Karimi, Jorden Senior, Yu-Cheng Chang, Joonas T. Peltonen et al.

The state of a superconducting circuit qubit governs the photonic heat flow through an integrated assembly, constituting a quantum heat valve that provides a testbed for exploring quantum thermodynamics in a circuit quantum electrodynamics setting.

A passive photon–atom qubit swap operation    pp996 - 1000
Orel Bechler, Adrien Borne, Serge Rosenblum, Gabriel Guendelman, Ori Ezrah Mor et al.

Demonstration of a passive swap gate between the states of a fibre-guided photonic qubit and a single atom.

Superlight inverse Doppler effect    pp1001 - 1005
Xihang Shi, Xiao Lin, Ido Kaminer, Fei Gao, Zhaoju Yang et al.

The authors theoretically investigate a novel form of a Doppler effect in homogeneous systems with positive refractive index that occurs under certain conditions. It is suggested that this Doppler effect can be experimentally separated from other Doppler effects by using polaritons such as those found in graphene.

Enhanced high-harmonic generation from an all-dielectric metasurface    pp1006 - 1010
Hanzhe Liu, Cheng Guo, Giulio Vampa, Jingyuan Linda Zhang, Tomas Sarmiento et al.

The demonstration of substantially enhanced high-harmonic emission from a silicon metasurface suggests a route towards novel photonic devices based on a combination of ultrafast strong-field physics and nanofabrication technology.

Topological spin excitations in a three-dimensional antiferromagnet    pp1011 - 1015
Weiliang Yao, Chenyuan Li, Lichen Wang, Shangjie Xue, Yang Dan et al.

A neutron scattering study of the three-dimensional antiferromagnet Cu3TeO6 uncovers evidence for topological crossings in the magnon spectra of this system.

Entropic effects in cell lineage tree packings    pp1016 - 1021
Jasmin Imran Alsous, Paul Villoutreix, Norbert Stoop, Stanislav Y. Shvartsman & Jörn Dunkel

The organization of small clusters of connected cells confined to an egg chamber during early development can be mapped onto a tree packing problem. Entropically preferred packing configurations are shown to arise more readily in experiment.

Acoustic Rabi oscillations between gravitational quantum states and impact on symmetron dark energy    pp1022 - 1026
Gunther Cronenberg, Philippe Brax, Hanno Filter, Peter Geltenbort, Tobias Jenke et al.

A spectroscopic approach based on the Rabi resonance method is used to probe the quantum states of ultracold neutrons—and thus their interaction with the gravitational potential of the Earth.


Quantum formulation of the Einstein equivalence principle    pp1027 - 1031
Magdalena Zych & Časlav Brukner

The physical conditions that support a geometric interpretation of spacetime, such as the equivalence between rest and inertial mass, are shown not to be necessarily valid in the quantum regime, and a quantum formulation is provided.

Measurements in two bases are sufficient for certifying high-dimensional entanglement    pp1032 - 1037
Jessica Bavaresco, Natalia Herrera Valencia, Claude Klöckl, Matej Pivoluska, Paul Erker et al.

Certification of high-dimensional entanglement is required for improved quantum communication protocols, and is now shown to be achievable in an efficient manner by measuring quantum states twice in two different bases.

Harnessing electro-optic correlations in an efficient mechanical converter    pp1038 - 1042
A. P. Higginbotham, P. S. Burns, M. D. Urmey, R. W. Peterson, N. S. Kampel et al.

A mechanical-mediated quantum-compatible microwave–optical converter achieves high efficiency through a feed-forward protocol that harnesses correlations in the output noise.

Routing the emission of a near-surface light source by a magnetic field    pp1043 - 1048
F. Spitzer, A. N. Poddubny, I. A. Akimov, V. F. Sapega, L. Klompmaker et al.

The Kerr and Faraday effects enable routing of light in an applied magnetic field. Now a new class of magneto-optical phenomena is proposed and demonstrated in which light emission is controlled perpendicular to the external magnetic field.

Doping the holographic Mott insulator    pp1049 - 1055
Tomas Andrade, Alexander Krikun, Koenraad Schalm & Jan Zaanen

A generalized Mott-insulating state is found theoretically starting from a holographic model. The state has features in common with the conventional variety, and upon doping shares striking similarities with the stripe phases found in cuprates.

Coexisting first- and second-order electronic phase transitions in a correlated oxide    pp1056 - 1061
K. W. Post, A. S. McLeod, M. Hepting, M. Bluschke, Yifan Wang et al.

A phase transition between metallic and insulating states is observed to simultaneously happen in two ways at once. The bulk of the sample shows an instantaneous jump in the conductivity, while 1D domain walls show a slow switching into a metallic state.

Experimental evidence for ultrafast intermolecular relaxation processes in hydrated biomolecules    pp1062 - 1066
Xueguang Ren, Enliang Wang, Anna D. Skitnevskaya, Alexander B. Trofimov, Kirill Gokhberg et al.

The authors study intermolecular Coulomb decay that occurs in a sample of THF and water in a reaction microscope employing triple-coincidence measurements of two ions and one electron. They find that ICD is a previously unconsidered effect between water and other organic molecules that are hydrogen-bonded, with ICD outpacing proton transfer.
