Quantum coherence control usually requires low temperature environments. Even for nitrogen-vacancy center spins in diamond, a remarkable exception, the coherence signal is limited to about 700 K due to the quench of the spin-dependent fluorescence at a higher temperature. Here …

Ten percent of children have a “monkey-like” immune system that stops them developing Aids, a study suggests. An untreated HIV infection will kill 60% of children within two and a half years, but the equivalent infection in monkeys is not …
