Radical 'Ballistic Computing' Chip Bounces Electrons Around Like Billiards
Computer designers at the University of Rochester are going ballistic. "Everyone has been trying to make better transistors by modifying current designs, but what we really need is the next paradigm," says ...
Electron filmed for first time ever
Now it is possible to see a movie of an electron. The movie shows how an electron rides on a light wave after just having been pulled away from an atom. This is the first time an electron has ever been filmed, ...
Quantum telecloning: Captain Kirk's clone and the eavesdropper
Imagine Captain Kirk being beamed back to the Starship Enterprise and two versions of the Star Trek hero arriving in the spacecraft's transporter room. It happened 40 years ago in an episode of the TV science fiction classic, ...
Physicists Unite Light And Matter (Update)
Physicists have for the first time stopped and extinguished a light pulse in one part of space and then revived it in a completely separate location. They accomplished this feat by completely converting the ...
Researchers Create New Form of Matter
Physicists at the University of Pittsburgh have demonstrated a new form of matter that melds the characteristics of lasers with those of the world's best electrical conductors - superconductors.
Wormholes on Earth?
Physicist suggests speed of light might be slower than thought
New material means 'x-ray specs' no longer required
A new optical effect has been created in a London laboratory that means solid objects such as walls could one day be rendered transparent, scientists report today in the journal Nature Materials.

Single-particle interference observed for macroscopic objects
'Electromagnetic Wormhole' Possible with Invisibility Technology
The team of mathematicians that first created the mathematics behind the "invisibility cloak" announced by physicists last October has now shown that the same technology could be used to generate an "electromagnetic ...
High efficiency flat light source invented
Tired of fluorescent tubes? Imagine your ceiling -- or any surface -- as a giant light panel, thanks to OLED research from the University of Southern California and Princeton University.
