Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
Most experiments that claim to show the quantum Zeno paradox fall short, study says
Uncertainty revisited: Novel tradeoffs in quantum measurement
Most precise measurement of electron mass made
Scientists in Germany said Wednesday they had made the most precise measurement yet of the mass of the electron, one of the building blocks of matter.
Earth's core reveals an inner weakness
(Phys.org) —The word "core" conjures up an image of something strong. However, new experiments show that the iron found in the Earth's core is relatively weak. This finding is based on x-ray spectroscopy ...
IUPAC votes to change standard atomic weights of 19 elements
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
Physicist disentangles 'Schrodinger's cat' debate
Physicist Art Hobson has offered a solution, within the framework of standard quantum physics, to the long-running debate about the nature of quantum measurement.
'Listening' to black holes form with gravity waves
New technology that breaks the quantum measurement barrier has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916.
Squeezed light produced using silicon micromechanical system
One of the many counterintuitive and bizarre insights of quantum mechanics is that even in a vacuum—what many of us think of as an empty void—all is not completely still. Low levels of noise, known as ...
Tetrapod nanocrystals light the way to stronger polymers
Fluorescent tetrapod nanocrystals could light the way to the future design of stronger polymer nanocomposites. A team of researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ...

WABIAN robot from Japan steps closer to human walk
Accurate distance measurement resolves major astronomical mystery
(Phys.org) —Sometimes astronomy is like real estate—what's important is location, location, and location. Astronomers have resolved a major problem in their understanding of a class of stars that undergo ...
