The physics of beer tapping
An old, hilarious if somewhat juvenile party trick involves covertly tapping the top of someone's newly opened beer bottle and then standing back as the suds foam out onto the floor.
New way to funnel light could have infrared applications
Car batteries powered by relativity
Proposed experiment offers new way to generate macroscopic entanglement
Could silicon be ideal in quantum computing?
Physicists build first single-photon router
Quantum correlations -- without entanglement
Scientists show how to erase information without using energy

A step closer to composite-based electronics
Composite materials are of increasing interest to physicists. Typically, they are made of electrically conducting elements - such as spherical metallic or elongated carbon particles - embedded in an insulating ...
Unexpected data from the Large Hadron Collider suggest the collisions may be producing a new type of matter
Collisions between protons and lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have produced surprising behavior in some of the particles created by the collisions. The new observation suggests the collisions ...
