New theory of stealth dark matter may explain universe's missing mass
Lawrence Livermore scientists have come up with a new theory that may identify why dark matter has evaded direct detection in Earth-based experiments.
Dark matter hiding in stars may cause observable oscillations
New limit to the Church-Turing thesis accounts for noisy systems
Physicists show 'molecules' made of light may be possible
It's not lightsaber time, not yet. But a team including theoretical physicists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has taken another step toward building objects out of photons, and the findings ...
Researchers propose new way to chart the cosmos in 3D
If only calculating the distance between Earth and far-off galaxies was as easy as pulling out the old measuring tape. Now UBC researchers are proposing a new way to calculate distances in the cosmos using mysterious bursts ...
First observation made of quantum-tunneling diffusion of hydrogen atoms on ice
Alloy engineering addresses long-standing problem of semiconductor defects
Physicists catch a magnetic wave that offers promise for more energy-efficient computing
A team of physicists has taken pictures of a theorized but previously undetected magnetic wave, the discovery of which offers the potential to be an energy-efficient means to transfer data in consumer electronics.
New model predicts the force required to tie simple knots
Got rope? Then try this experiment: Cross both ends, left over right, then bring the left end under and out, as if tying a pair of shoelaces. If you repeat this sequence, you get what's called a "granny" knot. If, instead, ...
