Researchers discover a way to switch liquid crystals off faster
Hubble bubble may explain different measurements of expansion rate of the universe
The existence of the "Hubble Bubble" may explain, at least in part, the differing measurements for the expansion and therefore the age of the universe. That is the assumption of a team of physicists headed by Prof. Dr. Luca ...
New approach enhances quantum-based secure communication
University of Calgary scientists have overcome an 'Achilles' heel' of quantum-based secure communication systems, using a new approach that works in the real world to safeguard secrets.
New evidence to aid search for charge 'stripes' in superconductors
(Phys.org) —Scientists at the DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory have identified a series of clues that particular arrangements of electrical charges known as "stripes" may play a role in superconductivity-the ...
Researchers propose a new system for quantum simulation
Researchers from the universities in Mainz, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Ulm have proposed a new platform for quantum simulation. In a theoretical paper recently published in Physical Review Letters, they show t ...
Quantum measurement carries information even when the measurement outcome is unread
Existence of new element confirmed
Remember the periodic table from chemistry class in school? Researchers from Lund University in Sweden have presented fresh evidence that confirms the existence of a previously unknown chemical element. The ...
New data from PAMELA provides better measure of positrons
Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
Physicist proves impossibility of quantum time crystals
Better insight into molecular interactions
How molecules in biochemical solutions do interact, is a question of great importance for understanding processes in catalysts, functional materials and even in organisms. Until now, scientists could have ...
New theory points to 'zombie vortices' as key step in star formation
(Phys.org) —A new theory by fluid dynamics experts at the University of California, Berkeley, shows how "zombie vortices" help lead to the birth of a new star.
Researchers develop model to help control cascading events
Cosmic turbulences result in star and black hole formation
Just how stars and black holes in the Universe are able to form from rotating matter is one of the big questions of astrophysics. What we do know is that magnetic fields figure prominently into the picture. ...
