'Phonon tunneling' explains heat flow across nanometer-wide gaps, study finds
Conduction and thermal radiation are two ways in which heat is transferred from one object to another: Conduction is the process by which heat flows between objects in physical contact, such as a pot of tea ...
Generating Mobius strips of light: Researchers experimentally produce these structures from light polarization
A collaboration of researchers from Canada, Europe and the USA have experimentally produced Möbius strips from the polarization of light, confirming a theoretical prediction that it is possible for light's ...
