Model-independent measurement of dark matter mass could lead to future discoveries
Quantum teleportation between atomic ensembles demonstrated for first time
First photo of shadow of single atom
In an international scientific breakthrough, a Griffith University research team has been able to photograph the shadow of a single atom for the first time.
'Solid' light could compute previously unsolvable problems
Researchers at Princeton University have begun crystallizing light as part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about the physics of matter.
Physicists create tabletop antimatter 'gun'
Existence of new element confirmed
Remember the periodic table from chemistry class in school? Researchers from Lund University in Sweden have presented fresh evidence that confirms the existence of a previously unknown chemical element. The ...
The sound of an atom has been captured
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology are first to show the use of sound to communicate with an artificial atom. They can thereby demonstrate phenomena from quantum physics with sound taking on ...
Experiment investigates how classical physics may emerge from quantum physics
Liquid spacetime: A very slippery superfluid, that's what spacetime could be like
What if spacetime were a kind of fluid? This is the question tackled by theoretical physicists working on quantum gravity by creating models attempting to reconcile gravity and quantum mechanics. Some of ...
Computer simulations suggest graphynes may be even more useful than graphene
Physicists suggest possible existence of other kinds of dark matter
Physicists control quantum tunneling with light for the first time
Scientists at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge have used light to help push electrons through a classically impenetrable barrier. While quantum tunnelling is at the heart of the peculiar wave nature of particles, this ...
New phase of water could dominate the interiors of Uranus and Neptune
Unlikely hydrogen bond discovered
As with magnets and alternating current, positively charged molecules never aim for one another. Indeed, similarly charged poles are repelled. Nevertheless, a team from the University of Copenhagen's Department ...
