First use of Deutsch's Algorithm in a cluster state quantum computer
Z machine melts diamond to puddle
Sandia’s Z machine, by creating pressures more than 10 million times that of the atmosphere at sea level, has turned a diamond sheet into a pool of liquid.
Experiment to Clarify Ancient Physics Discovery Yields More Questions
Scientists create light from vacuum
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology have succeeded in creating light from vacuum observing an effect first predicted over 40 years ago. The results will be published tomorrow ...
New Spin Source Could Offer Insight Into Gravity
Is dark matter made of axions?
An all-electric aircraft could soon appear over the horizon thanks to high-flying scientific research published today in the Institute of Physics' journal, Superconductor Science and Technology. The new type of aircraft, curren ...
Research Continues for Deep Space Travel Propulsion
Graduate students and faculty researchers at The University of Alabama in Huntsville are investigating propulsion concepts that could eventually revolutionize deep space travel.
Revised theory of gravity doesn't predict a Big Bang
Expanding universe can emerge in remarkably simple way, scientists say
When soup is heated, it starts to boil. When time and space are heated, an expanding universe can emerge, without requiring anything like a "Big Bang". This phase transition between a boring empty space and ...
Theoretical physics breakthrough: Generating matter and antimatter from the vacuum
Under just the right conditions -- which involve an ultra-high-intensity laser beam and a two-mile-long particle accelerator -- it could be possible to create something out of nothing, according to University of Michigan ...
Alan Guth on new insights into the 'Big Bang'
Earlier this week, scientists announced that a telescope observing faint echoes of the so-called "Big Bang" had found evidence of the universe's nearly instantaneous expansion from a mere dot into a dense ...
