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 ...
New study revisits Miller-Urey experiment at the quantum level
For the first time, researchers have reproduced the results of the Miller-Urey experiment in a computer simulation, yielding new insight into the effect of electricity on the formation of life's building ...
On-chip topological light: First measurements of transmission and delay
Topological transport of light is the photonic analog of topological electron flow in certain semiconductors. In the electron case, the current flows around the edge of the material but not through the bulk. ...
Researchers image the Milky Way's magnetic fingerprint
(Phys.org) —Our Galaxy's magnetic field is revealed in a new image from ESA's Planck satellite. This image was compiled from the first all-sky observations of 'polarised' light emitted by interstellar dust ...
How to test the twin paradox without using a spaceship
Forget about anti-ageing creams and hair treatments. If you want to stay young, get a fast spaceship. That is what Einstein's Theory of Relativity predicted a century ago, and it is commonly known as "twin ...
Mystery of planet-forming disks explained by magnetism
(Phys.org) —Astronomers say that magnetic storms in the gas orbiting young stars may explain a mystery that has persisted since before 2006.
Light field microscopy for whole brain activity maps
Infrared vision lets researchers see through—and into—multiple layers of graphene
(Phys.org) —It's not X-ray vision, but you could call it infrared vision.
MIT researchers build an all-optical transistor
Optical computing—using light rather than electricity to perform calculations—could pay dividends for both conventional computers and quantum computers, largely hypothetical devices that could perform ...
