'Spooky action at a distance' aboard the ISS
(Phys.org) —Albert Einstein famously described quantum entanglement as "spooky action at distance"; however, up until now experiments that examine this peculiar aspect of physics have been limited to relatively ...
Wireless power could revolutionize highway transportation, researchers say
A Stanford University research team has designed a high-efficiency charging system that uses magnetic fields to wirelessly transmit large electric currents between metal coils placed several feet apart. The ...
Observations of early universe hint at a giant excess of anti-neutrinos
Physicists show self-correcting quantum computers are theoretically possible
'Tunneling of the third kind' experiment could search for new physics
Cloaking magnetic fields: The first 'antimagnet' device developed
Spanish researchers have designed what they believe to be a new type of magnetic cloak, which shields objects from external magnetic fields, while at the same time preventing any magnetic internal fields from ...
Greying Singapore taps robots, games in rehab
Six months ago, Singaporean retiree Soon Eng Sam, 70, suffered a stroke that paralysed the left side of his body.
Scientists report hint of dark matter in first results from $2 billion cosmic ray detector (Update 4)
It is one of the cosmos' most mysterious unsolved cases: dark matter. It is supposedly what holds the universe together. We can't see it, but scientists are pretty sure it's out there.
Radioactive decay a random process right? Well, according to some maybe not. For several years now a team of physicists from Purdue and Stanford have reviewed isotope decay data across a range ...
Physicists explain puzzling particle collisions
An anomaly spotted at the Large Hadron Collider has prompted scientists to reconsider a mathematical description of the underlying physics. By considering two forces that are distinct in everyday life but ...
Entangled Light in Bose-Einstein Condensates
Quantum strategy offers game-winning advantages, even without entanglement
'Metascreen' forms ultra-thin invisibility cloak
(Phys.org) —Up until now, the invisibility cloaks put forward by scientists have been fairly bulky contraptions – an obvious flaw for those interested in Harry Potter-style applications.
