Understanding a new kind of magnetism
Using low-frequency laser pulses, a team of researchers has carried out the first measurements that reveal the detailed characteristics of a unique kind of magnetism found in a mineral called herbertsmithite.
Proton weak charge determined for first time: Initial Q-weak experiement results

Modern-day alchemy: A recipe for a new superheavy element
Even though nearly 80 years have passed since the discovery of Technetium, the first "synthetic" element, the periodic table of elements remains a work in progress.
New map of Universe may reconcile conflicting cosmological observations
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
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 ...
