Morphing composite material has mighty potential (w/ Video)
(Phys.org) —Heating a sheet of plastic may not bring it to life – but it sure looks like it does in new experiments at Rice University.
Time warp: Researchers show possibility of cloning quantum information from the past
(Phys.org) —Popular television shows such as "Doctor Who" have brought the idea of time travel into the vernacular of popular culture. But problem of time travel is even more complicated than one might think. LSU's Mark ...
Nonlinear light-generating zero-index metamaterial created
(Phys.org) —The Information Age will get a major upgrade with the arrival of quantum processors many times faster and more powerful than today's supercomputers. For the benefits of this new Information ...
JILA team develops 'spinning trap' to measure electron roundness
JILA researchers have developed a method of spinning electric and magnetic fields around trapped molecular ions to measure whether the ions' tiny electrons are truly round—research with major implications ...
Scientists predict coreless vortex in ultracold atoms
Swirling, persistent vortices can be created in superfluid helium. Generally no atoms sit at the eye of these miniature hurricanes. Things might be different in condensates of ultracold atoms. Theorists at ...
Manipulating electron spin mechanically
(Phys.org) —Contrary to many textbook illustrations, electrons aren't just balls floating around an atom. In quantum theory, they're more like little tops, exhibiting "spin," and each creating its own tiny ...
'Spooky action' builds a wormhole between 'entangled' quantum particles
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as "spooky action at a distance," could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
3-D images, with only one photon per pixel
Lidar rangefinders, which are common tools in surveying and in autonomous-vehicle control, among other applications, gauge depth by emitting short bursts of laser light and measuring the time it takes for ...
