Human hearing beats the Fourier uncertainty principle
Revolutionary solar cells double as lasers
Commercial silicon-based solar cells - such as those seen on the roofs of houses across the country - operate at about 20% efficiency for converting the Sun's rays into electrical energy. It's taken over ...
Philosopher untangles Einstein senility controversy
When it comes to looking at reality from the subatomic perspective of quantum theory, many physicists are nearly as much in the dark as the average person on the street.
Could 'Higgsogenesis' explain dark matter?
Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
Scientists propose quantum wells as high-power, easy-to-make energy harvesters
Optical data storage has virtually unlimited lifetime
New map of Universe may reconcile conflicting cosmological observations
Technical tests of biodiversity: Physicists play with the genetics of populations
A team of physicists from SISSA and the Polytechnic University of Turin has developed and analysed a model that simulates the effect of migration on the genetic biodiversity of populations, and discovered ...
You don't exist in an infinite number of places, say scientists
When he was in elementary school, Scott Aaronson, like many mathematically precocious kids of his generation, dreamed of making his own video games. He had only the foggiest notion of what that entailed, ...
Researchers suggest changes to theories regarding neutron star crust structure
Fusion, and friction, and fields! Oh, my! The rich and ubiquitous world of fluid dynamics
Can you escape the force of gravity?
It feels like you just can't get away from clingy gravity. Even separated by distances of hundreds of millions of light years, gravity is reaching out to all of us. Is there a place you could go to get away ...
