Two teams estimate the flavor of neutrinos detected by The IceCube Neutrino Observatory
Quantum random number generator combines best of two approaches
Electron chirp: Cyclotron radiation from single electrons measured directly for first time
A year before Albert Einstein came up with the special theory of relativity, or E=mc2, physicists predicted the existence of something else: cyclotron radiation. Scientists predicted this radiation to be ...
Is the universe a hologram?
Describing the universe requires fewer dimensions than we might think. New calculations show that this may not just be a mathematical trick, but a fundamental feature of space itself.
Apparatus measures single electron's radiation to try to weigh a neutrino
University of Washington physicists are part of a team that made a step forward in their efforts to pin down the mass of a neutrino, an elusive subatomic particle that played a role in the formation of the ...
Simplified model predicts patterns that form from honey-like fluids
Drizzling honey on toast can produce mesmerizing, meandering patterns, as the syrupy fluid ripples and coils in a sticky, golden thread. Dribbling paint on canvas can produce similarly serpentine loops and ...
Upside down and inside out
Researchers have captured the first 3D video of a living algal embryo turning itself inside out, from a sphere to a mushroom shape and back again. The results could help unravel the mechanical processes at ...
New tabletop detector 'sees' single electrons
MIT physicists have developed a new tabletop particle detector that is able to identify single electrons in a radioactive gas.
Universe may be on the brink of collapse (on the cosmological timescale)
Physicists propose method to measure variations in the speed of light
Could classical theory be just as weird as quantum theory?
Introducing flaws into liquid crystals by inserting microspheres and then controlling them with electrical fields: that, in a nutshell, is the rationale behind a method that could be exploited for a new generation of advanced ...
