Physics Today April 2022In the May 2022 Issue

The Secret World in the Gaps between Brain Cells
Innovations in diffusion analysis and imaging techniques have gradually revealed the ubiquity and importance of extracellular space. — Charles Nicholson

ABACC to the Future
At the end of the Cold War, two South American rivals built a system of nuclear safeguards that culminated in the 1991 founding of a bilateral organization, ABACC. Can that nonproliferation regime be exported? — Christopher Dunlap

Coulomb-Explosion Imaging Tackles an 11-Atom Molecule
Until now, the technique was thought to work only on molecules with no more than about five atoms. A powerful X-ray source leaves that limit in the dust. — Johanna L. Miller

Glass Ages in Material Time
The long-standing assumption that the same relaxation processes underlie linear and nonlinear aging is now backed up by experiments. — Christine Middleton

Further Delays at ITER Are Certain, but Their Duration Isn’t Clear
A halt to construction, pandemic-caused delays in deliveries, labor strife, and concerns about potential beryllium exposure are among recent challenges to the fusion project. — David Kramer

Quasicrystals and the Birth of the Atomic Age
The first nuclear bomb explosion led to the formation of a novel form of matter, known as a quasicrystal, with an elemental composition that had never been seen before. — Luca Bindi and Paul Steinhardt
