Tom Broadhurst, an Ikerbasque researcher at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), has participated alongside scientists of the National Taiwan University in a piece of research that explores cold dark matter in ...
A new technique that allows curved surfaces to appear flat to electromagnetic waves has been developed by scientists at Queen Mary University of London.
(Phys.org) —Nuclear magnetic resonance—that phenomenon where nuclei of certain atoms, when in a magnetic field, take in and give off measurable amounts of electromagnetic radiation—is everywhere.
We already charge our toothbrushes and cellphones using contactless technology. Researchers have developed a particularly efficient and cost-effective method that means electric cars could soon follow suit.
University of Warwick scientists have shown how to tie knots in liquid crystals using a miniature Möbius strip made from silica particles.
Scientists at the University of Leeds have solved a 300-year-old riddle about which direction the centre of the earth spins.
A photon is the quantum particle of light and electromagnetic radiation. A phonon is its equivalent when it comes to mechanical vibrations of matter and heat transmission. Although it might seem surprising, electromagnetic ...
A Catalan, German and Austrian group of physicists has developed a new technology to transfer magnetic fields to arbitrary long distances, which is comparable to transmitting and routing light in optical fibers. Oriol Romero-Isart ...
(Phys.org) —The use of graphene in telecommunications could dramatically accelerate internet speeds by up to a hundred times, according to new research by scientists in our Department of Physics.
A new study shows that light transmitted through apertures smaller than the wavelength of light go through a radical change, splitting into two symmetrical counter-rotating polarisations.
