Einstein equations indicate possibility of black hole formation at the LHC
Scientists examine possibility of a phonon laser, or 'phaser'
Dark energy hides behind phantom fields
Quintessence and phantom fields, two hypotheses formulated using data from satellites, such as Planck and WMAP, are among the many theories that try to explain the nature of dark energy. Now researchers from ...
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 ...
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
Cosmologists cast doubt on inflation evidence
It was just a week ago that the news blew through the scientific world like a storm: researchers from the BICEP2 project at the South Pole Telescope had detected unambiguous evidence of primordial gravitational waves in the cosmic microwave background, t ...
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
Physicists investigate fate of five-dimensional black strings
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 ...
Researchers propose a new way to detect the elusive graviton
(Phys.org) —Among the four fundamental forces of nature, only gravity has not had a basic unit, or quanta, detected. Physicists expect that gravitational force is transmitted by an elementary particle called a graviton, ...
