Quantum test strengthens support for EPR steering
Dolphin-inspired sonar overcomes size-wavelength limitation
Two Japanese, one American win Nobel Prize in physics
An invention that promises to revolutionize the way the world lights its homes and offices—and already helps create the glowing screens of mobile phones, computers and TVs— earned a Nobel Prize on Tuesday ...
Majorana fermion: Physicists observe elusive particle that is its own antiparticle
Princeton University scientists have observed an exotic particle that behaves simultaneously like matter and antimatter, a feat of math and engineering that could yield powerful computers based on quantum ...
Superposition revisited: Proposed resolution of double-slit experiment paradox using Feynman path integral formalism
Now hear this: Simple fluid waveguide performs spectral analysis in a manner similar to the cochlea
A Higgs-gravity connection may leave traces in white dwarfs
Wild molecular interactions in a new hydrogen mixture
Hydrogen—the most abundant element in the cosmos—responds to extremes of pressure and temperature differently. Under ambient conditions hydrogen is a gaseous two-atom molecule. As confinement pressure ...
Researchers build reversible tractor beam that moves objects 100 times farther than other efforts
Lockheed Martin pursues compact fusion reactor concept
Revving up fluorescence for superfast LEDs: Researchers set speed record for molecular fluorescence
Duke University researchers have made fluorescent molecules emit photons of light 1,000 times faster than normal—setting a speed record and making an important step toward realizing superfast light emitting ...
Getting sharp images from dull detectors: Operating in the fuzzy area between classical and quantum light
Observing the quantum behavior of light is a big part of Alan Migdall's research at the Joint Quantum Institute. Many of his experiments depend on observing light in the form of photons—-the particle complement ...
A cold-atom ammeter: Superfluid current is only as strong as its weak link
(Phys.org) —In certain exotic situations, a collection of atoms can transition to a superfluid state, flouting the normal rules of liquid behavior. Unlike a normal, viscous fluid, the atoms in a superfluid ...
UW fusion reactor concept could be cheaper than coal
Fusion energy almost sounds too good to be true – zero greenhouse gas emissions, no long-lived radioactive waste, a nearly unlimited fuel supply.
