Fiber optic light pipes in the retina do much more than simple image transfer
Test of equivalence principle searches for effects of spin-gravity coupling
Particle, meet wave: Optical qubit technique squeezes photons to bridge discrete and continuous quantum regimes
Entanglement between particle and wave-like states of light resembles Schrodinger's cat experiment (Update)
Artificial spacetime experiment could show tantalizing effects of gravitational waves
On-chip topological light: First measurements of transmission and delay
Topological transport of light is the photonic analog of topological electron flow in certain semiconductors. In the electron case, the current flows around the edge of the material but not through the bulk. ...
Researchers develop treated surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move (w/ Video)
Researchers at MIT and in Saudi Arabia have developed a new way of making surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move across them. The work might enable new kinds of biomedical or microfluidic ...
Spin-based electronics: New material successfully tested
Spintronics is an emerging field of electronics, where devices work by manipulating the spin of electrons rather than the current generated by their motion. This field can offer significant advantages to computer technology. ...
Physicists unlock nature of high-temperature superconductivity
Physicists have identified the "quantum glue" that underlies a promising type of superconductivity—a crucial step towards the creation of energy superhighways that conduct electricity without current loss.
Superconductivity could form at high temperatures in layered 2D crystals
An elusive state of matter called superconductivity could be realized in stacks of sheetlike crystals just a few atoms thick, a trio of physicists has determined.
Physicists discuss quantum pigeonhole principle
Researchers demonstrate reconfigurable clusters made of colloidal particles as a form of data storage
IHEP in China has ambitions for Higgs factory
Law of physics governs airplane evolution
Researchers believe they now know why the supersonic trans-Atlantic Concorde aircraft went the way of the dodo—it hit an evolutionary cul-de-sac.
