Study finds semiclassical gravity counterintuitive, but on the horizon of testability
Gravity's lingua franca: Unifying general relativity and quantum theory through spectra; geometry
Physicists propose measure of macroscopicity; Schrodinger's cat scores a 57
New phase of water could dominate the interiors of Uranus and Neptune
Making quantum encryption practical
One of the many promising applications of quantum mechanics in the information sciences is quantum key distribution (QKD), in which the counterintuitive behavior of quantum particles guarantees that no one can eavesdrop on ...
Physicists develop revolutionary low-power polariton laser
(Phys.org) —Lasers are an unseen backbone of modern society. They're integral to technologies ranging from high-speed Internet services to Blu-ray players.
IceCube Neutrino Observatory reports first evidence for extraterrestrial high-energy neutrinos
(Phys.org) —A massive telescope in the Antarctic ice reports the detection of 28 extremely high-energy neutrinos that might have their origin in cosmic sources. Two of these reached energies greater than ...
Russian researchers find more evidence to support notion that lightning is caused by cosmic rays

LHCb experiment observes new matter-antimatter difference
(Phys.org) —The LHCb collaboration at CERN today submitted a paper to Physical Review Letters on the first observation of matter-antimatter asymmetry in the decays of the particle known as the B0s. It is only the fourth sub-at ...
Cause of LED efficiency droop finally revealed: Auger recombination responsible
(Phys.org)—Researchers at University of California, Santa Barbara, in collaboration with colleagues at the École Polytechnique in France, have conclusively identified Auger recombination as the mechanism ...

Simulation shows it's possible to move H2O@C60 using electrical charge
Scientists use X-ray diffraction to image whole, hydrated cells in their natural state for the first time
Most cells exist in a hydrated state and often live suspended in solution. In order to be imaged, cells must generally be frozen or dried, and then stained with substances such as heavy metals. Unfortunately, ...
