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
Pair of noted physicists contemplate future of cosmology after detection of primordial gravitational waves
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
Physicists detect process even rarer than the long-sought Higgs particle
(Phys.org) —Scientists running the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and most powerful "atom smasher," report the first evidence of a process that can be used to test ...
CERN experiment takes us one step closer to discovering where all the antimatter went
New research published today by researchers from CERN has brought us a step closer to understanding where all the antimatter has gone. This matter-antimatter asymmetry is one of the greatest challenges in ...
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, ...
