First entanglement between light and optical atomic coherence
Using clouds of ultra-cold atoms and a pair of lasers operating at optical wavelengths, researchers have reached a quantum network milestone: entangling light with an optical atomic coherence composed of ...
Exotic atoms hold clues to unsolved physics puzzle at the dawn of the universe
An international team of physicists has found the first direct evidence of pear shaped nuclei in exotic atoms. The findings could advance the search for a new fundamental force in nature that could explain ...
Probing electron behaviour at the tips of nanocones
One of the ways of improving electrons manipulation is though better control over one of their inner characteristics, called spin. This approach is the object of an entire field of study, known as spintronics. Now, Richard ...
Discovery of new subatomic particle sheds light on fundamental force of nature
The discovery of a new particle will "transform our understanding" of the fundamental force of nature that binds the nuclei of atoms, researchers argue.
Knock, knock, knocking on the proton's weak charge
(Phys.org) —The weak force is, for laymen, the least known of the quartet of interactions that run the universe as we know it.
Electron magnetic moment calculated precisely
(Phys.org)—An electron, as well as other subatomic particles with an electric charge, is actually a little magnet—it spins like a top, giving it its own magnetic moment.
New study furthers Einstein's 'theory of everything'
(Phys.org)—Sussex physicists have taken a small step towards fulfilling Einstein's dream of proving there is only one fundamental force in nature.
New platform developed to measure and exploit optomechanical interactions
(Phys.org)—Researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology and Caltech have developed a new design platform for measuring and exploiting strong interactions between light confined ...
Nanophotonic devices could revolutionize the telecommunications industry
This year's Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics will be awarded to Professor Motoichi Ohtsu for his pioneering and seminal work on nanophotonics and near field optics as well as for the development of innovative nanophotonic ...
