A cure for clashing qubits: Researchers successfully entangle different-color photons
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.
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 ...

Researchers suggest changes to theories regarding neutron star crust structure
Einstein's 'spooky' theory may lead to ultra-secure internet
(Phys.org) —Einstein's scepticism about quantum mechanics may lead to an ultra-secure internet, suggests a new paper by researchers from Swinburne University of Technology and Peking University.
Physicists use geometry to understand 'jamming' process
(Phys.org) —University of Oregon physicists using a supercomputer and mathematically rich formulas have captured fundamental insights about what happens when objects moving freely jam to a standstill.
Quantum cryptography for mobile phones
Secure mobile communications underpin our society and through mobile phones, tablets and laptops we have become online consumers. The security of mobile transactions is obscure to most people but is absolutely essential if ...
Researchers identify two key characteristics never before measured of Lambda particle
(Phys.org) —It takes dedication and perseverance to solve a mystery that has been around for 50 years. Just ask Reinhard Schumacher, a professor of physics at Carnegie Mellon University. He and his colleagues ...
Explaining interactions between light, heat, and charge carriers in silicon photonic microresonators
