Researchers track ripples in freestanding graphene for first time
(Phys.org) —An international team of scientists, led by physicists at the University of Arkansas, has tracked the dynamic movement of ripples in freestanding graphene at the atomic level.
One kind of supersymmetry shown to emerge naturally
(Phys.org) —UC Santa Barbara physicist Tarun Grover has provided definitive mathematical evidence for supersymmetry in a condensed matter system. Sought after in the realm of subatomic particles by physicists ...
Pseudogap theory puts physicists closer to high temperature superconductors
(Phys.org) —Physicists are one step closer to developing the world's first room-temperature superconductor thanks to a new theory from the University of Waterloo, Harvard and Perimeter Institute.
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 ...
New particle might make quantum condensation at room temperature possible
Researchers from FOM Institute AMOLF, Philips Research, and the Autonomous University of Madrid have identified a new type of particle that might make quantum condensation possible at room temperature. The ...
Researchers remove oil from water using copper cones inspired by cactus spines (w/ Video)
First observation of spin Hall effect in a quantum gas is step toward 'atomtronics'
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have reported in Nature the first observation of the "spin Hall effect" in a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), a cloud of ultracold atoms acting ...
Superconducting qualities of topological insulators demonstrated
(Phys.org) —Topological insulators (TIs) are an exciting new type of material that on their surface carry electric current, but within their bulk, act as insulators. Since the discovery of TIs about a decade ...
Jumping droplets help heat transfer
Many industrial plants depend on water vapor condensing on metal plates: In power plants, the resulting water is then returned to a boiler to be vaporized again; in desalination plants, it yields a supply of clean water. ...
