More sperm cells may be needed to overcome high mortality rate
It's one of the true miracles of life, that moment when hundreds of little sperm make it all the way to an unfertilized egg and one breaches its walls. But what of all those other spermatozoa, the hundreds ...
Amazing microdroplet structures may lead to new technologies
Unexpected shapes of mesoscale atoms—structures built of microdroplets encapsulated within microdroplets—have been created at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, ...
New way to cool micro-electronic devices
Quantum shortcut could speed up many quantum technologies
Researchers build new fermion microscope
Fermions are the building blocks of matter, interacting in a multitude of permutations to give rise to the elements of the periodic table. Without fermions, the physical world would not exist.
Quantum random number generator combines best of two approaches
Universe may be on the brink of collapse (on the cosmological timescale)
Could classical theory be just as weird as quantum theory?
Physicists stop and store light traveling in an optical fiber
Researchers at the Kastler Brossel Laboratory in Paris have managed to store light that propagates in an optical fiber and to release it later on demand. By causing interaction between the traveling light ...
