Pinwheel 'living' crystals and the origin of life
Simply making nanoparticles spin coaxes them to arrange themselves into what University of Michigan researchers call 'living rotating crystals' that could serve as a nanopump. They may also, incidentally, shed light on the ...
Physicists extend special relativity beyond the speed of light
It's alive! Scientists combine liquid crystals and living bacteria
Human hearing beats the Fourier uncertainty principle
Nanoscale freezing leads to better imaging
It's an odd twist. For scientists to determine if a cell is functioning properly, they must destroy it.
Physicist proves impossibility of quantum time crystals
Improving methods used to analyze and model fluid dynamics
Understanding how fluids flow and the forces that affect them at various scales and boundary conditions (e.g., flat or curved flow domain boundaries) is relevant to solving a host of physics problems that ...
Scientists create light bullets for high-intensity optical applications
Could 'Higgsogenesis' explain dark matter?
Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
Scientists propose quantum wells as high-power, easy-to-make energy harvesters
Researchers find key to controlling the electronic and magnetic properties of Mott thin films
"Mottronics" is a term seemingly destined to become familiar to aficionados of electronic gadgets. Named for the Nobel laureate Nevill Francis Mott, Mottronics involve materials – mostly metal oxides - ...
