A new study has analysed tens of thousands of articles available to readers of online news and created a model to find out 'what makes people click'.
(Phys.org) —An international team of researchers has reached a milestone in experimental confirmation of a key tenet of quantum mechanics, using ultra-sensitive photon detectors devised by PML scientists.
An important advance in the quantitative understanding and experimental verification of complementarity; arguably the most important foundational principle of quantum mechanics.
(Phys.org) —Researchers have discovered that the brightly coloured frills of the iconic Australian frillneck lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingii) can be used to predict the animals fighting ability.
