Fusion, and friction, and fields! Oh, my! The rich and ubiquitous world of fluid dynamics
Solitary acoustic waves observed to propagate at a lipid membrane interface
Peering into giant planets from in and out of this world
Lawrence Livermore scientists for the first time have experimentally re-created the conditions that exist deep inside giant planets, such as Jupiter, Uranus and many of the planets recently discovered outside ...
What are the chances that a particle collider's strangelets will destroy the Earth?
Physicists investigate onset of effective mass
Nanoscale heat engine exceeds standard efficiency limit
How does complex behavior spontaneously emerge in the brain?
Can dark energy be explained by symmetrons?
Anti-protest law changes Twitter users' behavior, but not network structure, physicists show
Nearly perfect, ultrathin invisibility cloak could have wide practical applications
Physicist suggests speed of light might be slower than thought
New simple setup for X-ray phase contrast
X-ray phase-contrast imaging is a method that uses the refraction of X-rays through a specimen instead of attenuation resulting from absorption. The images produced with this method are often of much higher ...
Arrays of electrons trapped in nanoscale circuitry could form the basis for future scalable quantum computers
A single electron trapped in a semiconductor nanostructure can form the most basic of building blocks for a quantum computer. Before practical quantum computers can be realized, however, scientists need to ...
