CERN nuclear physics lab admits Pakistan
The world's top particle physics lab has admitted Pakistan as an associate member.
Team realizes an Aharonov-Bohm type interferometer to measure the band topology in graphene type lattices
Among the most revolutionary concepts of modern physics is that the laws of nature are inherently non-local. One striking manifestation of this non-locality was famously predicted by Aharonov and Bohm: a ...
Quantum physics just got less complicated
Here's a nice surprise: quantum physics is less complicated than we thought. An international team of researchers has proved that two peculiar features of the quantum world previously considered distinct ...
How the physics of champagne bubbles may help address the world's future energy needs
Uncork a bottle of champagne, and as the pressure of the liquid is abruptly removed, bubbles immediately form and then rapidly begin the process of "coarsening," in which larger bubbles grow at the expense ...
Using the power of a trillion light bulbs to map the nano-world
Generating the equivalent of a trillion light bulbs – more power than the whole national grid, but delivered in incredibly short flashes, a new international science facility will give British researchers ...
Physicists advance understanding of transition metal oxides used in electronics
An international team of scientists, led by physicists at the University of Arkansas, has characterized the electronic and magnetic structure in artificially synthesized materials called transition metal oxides.
Motion of two electrons in helium atom can be imaged and controlled with attosecond-timed laser flashes
Physicists are continuously advancing the control they can exert over matter. A German-Spanish team working with researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg has now become ...
Electron spin could be the key to high-temperature superconductivity
Swiss scientists take a significant step in our understanding of superconductivity by studying the strange quantum events in a unique superconducting material.
Ultrafast imaging of complex systems in 3D at near atomic resolution nears
It is becoming possible to image complex systems in 3-D with near-atomic resolution on ultrafast timescales using extremely intense X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) pulses.
Electric field switching of ferromagnetism at room temperature
In a development that holds promise for future magnetic memory and logic devices, researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and Cornell University ...
Attack on classical cryptography system raises security questions
What's next for the Large Hadron Collider?
The world's most powerful particle collider is waking up from a well-earned rest. After roughly two years of heavy maintenance, scientists have nearly doubled the power of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ...
