Charged particles can be accelerated using light, leading the way for more compact particle accelerators
Modern particle accelerators measure up to several kilometres in size and cost billions of euros. But thanks to a new method they could shrink to less than 10 metres and cost 10 times less in future. To this ...
Wind turbines operate under great turbulence, with consequences for grid stability
New principle sets maximum limit on quantum information communication
White dwarf star throws light on possible variability of a constant of Nature
An international team led by the University of New South Wales has studied a distant star where gravity is more than 30,000 times greater than on Earth to test its controversial theory that one of the constants ...
Data highway for quantum information
Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology quantum mechanically couple atoms to glass fiber cables. Now, they have shown that their technique enables storage of quantum information over a sufficiently ...
Predicted experimental test will clarify how light interacts with matter at high energies
Collisions of atomic and subatomic particles at very high energies reveal important properties about the beginning of the Universe and the atomic forces, and how fundamental particles are formed and react ...
Quantum communication scheme provides guaranteed security without quantum memories
Scientists capture ultrafast snapshots of light-driven superconductivity
A new study pins down a major factor behind the appearance of superconductivity—the ability to conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency—in a promising copper-oxide material.
Physicists build quantum refrigerator based on four quantum dots
Physicists provide experimental proof of theorized Efimov states
Some years ago, Rudolf Grimm's team of quantum physicists in Innsbruck provided experimental proof of Efimov states – a phenomenon that until then had been known only in theory. Now they have also measured ...
New study furthers Einstein's 'theory of everything'
(Phys.org)—Sussex physicists have taken a small step towards fulfilling Einstein's dream of proving there is only one fundamental force in nature.
