Can quantum theory be improved?
Researcher devises a new way to mimic Hawking radiation in a lab
Looking for novel forms of superconductivity: Two-dimensional electron liquids
Truly two-dimensional objects are rare. Even a thin piece of paper is trillions of atoms thick. When physicists do succeed in producing 2D systems, quantum interactions can lead to new phenomena and Nobel ...
Cool calculations for cold atoms: New theory of universal three-body encounters
(Phys.org) —Chemical reactions drive the mechanisms of life as well as a million other natural processes on earth. These reactions occur at a wide spectrum of temperatures, from those prevailing at the ...
Physicists create water tractor beam
Physicists at The Australian National University (ANU) have created a tractor beam on water, providing a radical new technique that could confine oil spills, manipulate floating objects or explain rips at ...
