Ex nihilo: Dynamical Casimir effect in metamaterial converts vacuum fluctuations into real photons
Accelerators can search for signs of Planck-scale gravity
Fusion energy: NIF experiments show initial gain in fusion fuel
Ignition – the process of releasing fusion energy equal to or greater than the amount of energy used to confine the fuel – has long been considered the "holy grail" of inertial confinement fusion science. ...

Physicists Investigate Possibility of an 'Unhiggs'
Researchers team up with architects to create bladeless wind electricity generator
Physicists propose Higgs boson 'portal' as the source of this elusive entity
One of the biggest mysteries in contemporary particle physics and cosmology is why dark energy, which is observed to dominate energy density of the universe, has a remarkably small (but not zero) value. This value is so small, ...
New 31-km-long International Linear Collider ready for construction
Today the Linear Collider Collaboration published its Technical Design Report [PDF] for the International Linear Collider (ILC) - a proposed 31-kilometer electron-positron collider that will both complement and advance beyond the physics of the Large Had ...
