Remote work or hybrid? Why employers have changed their minds

Remote work or hybrid?  Why employers have changed their minds

Image: Getty Images Employers are “abandoning remote working” in favor of hybrid models in an effort to retain valuable staff and ensure junior team members have better opportunities to learn and progress, say the findings of a new report. Robert Half’s Demand for Tech Talent Report, which surveyed 750 tech-hiring managers across the UK, found …

Study observes the coexistence of topological edge states and superconductivity in stanene films

Study observes the coexistence of topological edge states and superconductivity in stanene films

Credit: Zhao et al. Stanene is a topological insulator comprised of atoms typically arranged in a similar pattern to those inside graphene. Stanene films have been found to be promising for the realization of numerous intriguing physics phases, including the quantum spin Hall phase and intrinsic superconductivity. Some theoretical studies also suggested that these films …
