Physicists find way to boot up quantum computers 72 times faster than previously possible
Press the start button, switch on the monitor, grab a cup of coffee and off you go. That is pretty much how most us experience booting up a computer. But with a quantum computer the situation is very different. ...
Universe may face a darker future
New research offers a novel insight into the nature of dark matter and dark energy and what the future of our Universe might be.
Physicists use dysprosium to put bounds on maximum speed of electrons
Albert Einstein's assertion that there's an ultimate speed limit – the speed of light – has withstood countless tests over the past 100 years, but that didn't stop University of California, Berkeley, postdoc Michael Hohensee ...
Physicists explain puzzling particle collisions
An anomaly spotted at the Large Hadron Collider has prompted scientists to reconsider a mathematical description of the underlying physics. By considering two forces that are distinct in everyday life but ...
Hypothetical new cosmological model known as Higgsogenesis
Recently in the news there's been talk of a new cosmological model known as Higgsogenesis. A paper outlining this model has been recently been published Physical Review Letters. The term Higgsogenesis refers t ...
Tests confirm nickel-78 is a 'doubly magic' isotope
The stability of atoms can vary considerably from one element to the next, and also between isotopes of the same element (whose nuclei contain the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons). ...
