Radical 'Ballistic Computing' Chip Bounces Electrons Around Like Billiards
Computer designers at the University of Rochester are going ballistic. "Everyone has been trying to make better transistors by modifying current designs, but what we really need is the next paradigm," says ...
Electron filmed for first time ever
Now it is possible to see a movie of an electron. The movie shows how an electron rides on a light wave after just having been pulled away from an atom. This is the first time an electron has ever been filmed, ...
Physicists Unite Light And Matter (Update)
Physicists have for the first time stopped and extinguished a light pulse in one part of space and then revived it in a completely separate location. They accomplished this feat by completely converting the ...
Researchers Create New Form of Matter
Physicists at the University of Pittsburgh have demonstrated a new form of matter that melds the characteristics of lasers with those of the world's best electrical conductors - superconductors.
Wormholes on Earth?
Physicist suggests speed of light might be slower than thought
Are We in the Peak of an Oil Bubble?
Single-particle interference observed for macroscopic objects
'Electromagnetic Wormhole' Possible with Invisibility Technology
The team of mathematicians that first created the mathematics behind the "invisibility cloak" announced by physicists last October has now shown that the same technology could be used to generate an "electromagnetic ...
Nonlocality of a Single Particle Demonstrated Without Objections
New theory (and old equations) may explain causes of ship-sinking freak waves
Physicists Modify Double-Slit Experiment to Confirm Einstein's Belief
Work completed by physics professors at Rowan University shows that light is made of particles and waves, a finding that refutes a common belief held for about 80 years.
Physicists create synthetic magnetic monopole predicted more than 80 years ago
(Phys.org) —Nearly 85 years after pioneering theoretical physicist Paul Dirac predicted the possibility of their existence, an international collaboration led by Amherst College Physics Professor David ...
Engineers create 'optical cloaking' design for invisibility
Researchers using nanotechnology have taken a step toward creating an "optical cloaking" device that could render objects invisible by guiding light around anything placed inside this "cloak."
