Volkswagen shows all-electric four-seater at Wolfsburg meet
Scientists observe coherent propagation of single spin impurity in a chain of ultracold atoms
Many discoveries in physics came as a big surprise – for example the phenomenon, that some materials loose almost all their electrical resistance at low temperatures, or that others become superconductors ...
Temp-controlled 'nanopores' may allow detailed blood analysis
(Phys.org) —Tiny biomolecular chambers called nanopores that can be selectively heated may help doctors diagnose disease more effectively if recent research by a team at the National Institute of Standards ...
