With neutrons, scientists can now look for dark energy in the lab
It does not always take a huge accelerator to do particle physics: First results from a low energy, table top alterative takes validity of Newtonian gravity down by five orders of magnitude and narrows the ...
New phase of water could dominate the interiors of Uranus and Neptune
Could 'Higgsogenesis' explain dark matter?
Researchers suggest dark matter disk in Milky Way plane could signal rash of comet strikes on Earth
Radiation from early universe found key to answer major questions in physics
(Phys.org) —Astrophysicists at UC San Diego have measured the minute gravitational distortions in polarized radiation from the early universe and discovered that these ancient microwaves can provide an ...
Dense hydrogen in a new light
(Phys.org) —Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. The way it responds under extreme pressures and temperatures is crucial to our understanding of matter and the nature of hydrogen-rich ...
Big Bang breakthrough team allows they may be wrong
American astrophysicists who announced just months ago what they deemed a breakthrough in confirming how the universe was born now admit they may have got it wrong.
Trio of physicists create computer simulation of dark matter using an empirical function
Physicists suggest possible existence of other kinds of dark matter
An unlikely competitor for diamond as the best thermal conductor
An unlikely material, cubic boron arsenide, could deliver an extraordinarily high thermal conductivity – on par with the industry standard set by costly diamond – researchers report in the current issue of the journal ...
Physicists set new record for quantum teleportation with matter qubits
Scientists create first computer-designed superconductor
(Phys.org) —A Binghamton University scientist and his international colleagues report this week on the successful synthesis of the first superconductor designed entirely on the computer. Their findings ...
Fantastic phonons: Blocking sound, channeling heat with 'unprecedented precision'
Imagine living on a bustling city block, but free from the noise of car horns and people on the street. The emerging field of phononics could one day make this a reality.
Mathematical breakthrough sets out rules for more effective teleportation
For the last ten years, theoretical physicists have shown that the intense connections generated between particles as established in the quantum law of 'entanglement' may hold the key to eventual teleportation of quantum ...
