Test of equivalence principle searches for effects of spin-gravity coupling
Artificial spacetime experiment could show tantalizing effects of gravitational waves
Researchers demonstrate reconfigurable clusters made of colloidal particles as a form of data storage
IHEP in China has ambitions for Higgs factory
Law of physics governs airplane evolution
Researchers believe they now know why the supersonic trans-Atlantic Concorde aircraft went the way of the dodo—it hit an evolutionary cul-de-sac.
Future electronics may depend on lasers, not quartz
(Phys.org) —Nearly all electronics require devices called oscillators that create precise frequencies—frequencies used to keep time in wristwatches or to transmit reliable signals to radios. For nearly ...
Ultrafast X-ray laser sheds new light on fundamental ultrafast dynamics
Ultrafast X-ray laser research led by Kansas State University has provided scientists with a snapshot of a fundamental molecular phenomenon. The finding sheds new light on microscopic electron motion in molecules.
Is the universe a bubble? Let's check
Perimeter Associate Faculty member Matthew Johnson and his colleagues are working to bring the multiverse hypothesis, which to some sounds like a fanciful tale, firmly into the realm of testable science.
Physicists propose molecular clock to expose new physics
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 ...
University of Illinois study advances limits for ultrafast nano-devices
A recent study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign provides new insights on the physical mechanisms governing the interplay of spin and heat at the nanoscale, and addresses the ...
Earth-crushing pressure? This electron spin doesn't care
(Phys.org) —To fully understand something, it is often instructive to view it at its extremes. How do materials behave when their bits are forced much closer together than is comfortable? How do electrons ...
Reigning in chaos in particle colliders yields big results
When beams with trillions of particles go zipping around at near light speed, there's bound to be some chaos. Limiting that chaos in particle colliders is crucial for the groundbreaking results such experiments ...
Improved method for isotope enrichment could secure a vital global commodity
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have devised a new method for enriching a group of the world's most expensive chemical commodities, stable isotopes, which are vital to medical imaging and ...
