Intriguing state of matter previously predicted in graphene-like materials might not exist after all
Virtually every material undergoes atomic-level ordering when cooled to temperatures approaching absolute zero. Liquid water, for example, is frozen into atomically ordered crystalline ice. However, condensed ...
Time's quantum arrow has a preferred direction: BaBar experiment confirms time asymmetry
(Phys.org)—Time marches relentlessly forward for you and me; watch a movie in reverse, and you'll quickly see something is amiss. But from the point of view of a single, isolated particle, the passage of ...
