Physicist Proposes Solution to Arrow-of-Time Paradox
Einstein equations indicate possibility of black hole formation at the LHC
Scientists examine possibility of a phonon laser, or 'phaser'
Magnetization can surf on the top of a laser-induced sound wave
An effective coupling between magnetism and light can be mediated by sound. This newly discovered phenomenon could be important for recording data on a magnetic device with the help of light. Physical Re ...
Accidental discovery dramatically improves electrical conductivity
Quite by accident, Washington State University researchers have achieved a 400-fold increase in the electrical conductivity of a crystal simply by exposing it to light. The effect, which lasted for days after ...
How 'frustrated' magnets escape magnetic deadlock at low temperatures
Magnetism in a material arises from how its electrons behave, which is influenced by the material's structure and the way that atoms and magnetic 'spins' of electrons are ordered within it. Frustrated magnets ...
Pentagon-backed 'time cloak' stops the clock (Update)
Pentagon-supported physicists on Wednesday said they had devised a "time cloak" that briefly makes an event undetectable.
Physicists discover evidence of rare hypernucleus, a component of strange matter
Scientist proves Braess paradox 'disappears' under high traffic demands
Telecommunications expert suggests Earth may have dark matter disc
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
Physicists investigate fate of five-dimensional black strings
New microscopy technique captures 3-D images of cells as they flow through a microfluidic channel
In 2007, MIT scientists developed a type of microscopy that allowed them to detail the interior of a living cell in three dimensions, without adding any fluorescent markers or other labels. This technique ...
Physicists propose a device to capture energy from Earth's infrared emissions to outer space
(Phys.org) —When the sun sets on a remote desert outpost and solar panels shut down, what energy source will provide power through the night? A battery, perhaps, or an old diesel generator? Perhaps something ...
