Maybe it wasn't the Higgs particle after all
Last year CERN announced the finding of a new elementary particle, the Higgs particle. But maybe it wasn't the Higgs particle, maybe it just looks like it. And maybe it is not alone.
Flat, diamond-shaped plates of lithium iron phosphate improve discharge voltages
Hollow, crystalline particles of lithium iron phosphate can enhance the performance of lithium-ion batteries by enabling an easier flow of lithium ions, A*STAR researchers have found.
Researchers build reversible tractor beam that moves objects 100 times farther than other efforts
Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy
The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum ...
Microbot muscles: Chains of particles assemble and flex
In a step toward robots smaller than a grain of sand, University of Michigan researchers have shown how chains of self-assembling particles could serve as electrically activated muscles in the tiny machines.
Study sheds new light on why batteries go bad
A comprehensive look at how tiny particles in a lithium ion battery electrode behave shows that rapid-charging the battery and using it to do high-power, rapidly draining work may not be as damaging as researchers ...
Three's a charm: NIST detectors reveal entangled photon triplets
Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon ...
Particle detector finds hints of dark matter in space
Researchers at MIT's Laboratory for Nuclear Science have released new measurements that promise to shed light on the origin of dark matter.
