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 ...
The quantum revolution is a step closer
A new way to run a quantum algorithm using much simpler methods than previously thought has been discovered by a team of researchers at the University of Bristol. These findings could dramatically bring ...
Researchers perform first direct measurement of Van der Waals force
Researchers propose method for measuring gravitational impact on antimatter
Swirls in remnants of big bang may hold clues to universe's infancy
South Pole Telescope scientists have detected for the first time a subtle distortion in the oldest light in the universe, which may help reveal secrets about the earliest moments in the universe's formation.
Solving a physics mystery: Those 'solitons' are really vortex rings
(Phys.org) —The same physics that gives tornadoes their ferocious stability lies at the heart of new University of Washington research, and could lead to a better understanding of nuclear dynamics in studying ...
Herschel throws new light on oldest cosmic light
(Phys.org) —Cosmologists have achieved a first detection of a long-sought component in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). This component, known as B-mode polarisation, is caused by gravitational lensing, ...
Researchers discover a way to switch liquid crystals off faster
Solar wind energy source discovered
Using data from an aging NASA spacecraft, researchers have found signs of an energy source in the solar wind that has caught the attention of fusion researchers. NASA will be able to test the theory later ...
