Free the quarks: Calculating the strong force
This year sees the 40th anniversary of the ground-breaking proposal that the interactions between quarks becomes weaker as they come closer together, laying the foundations of quantum chromodynamics, or QCD, the modern theory ...
New study furthers Einstein's 'theory of everything'
(Phys.org)—Sussex physicists have taken a small step towards fulfilling Einstein's dream of proving there is only one fundamental force in nature.

Physicists looking to test theory of 'cosmic domain walls'
Physicists show math behind growth of 'coffee rings'
(Phys.org)—Last year, a team of University of Pennsylvania physicists showed how to undo the "coffee-ring effect," a commonplace occurrence when drops of liquid with suspended particles dry, leaving a ring- ...
Soft Lego built in the computer
Barbara Capone of the Computational Physics Group of the University of Vienna has developed a new method for the construction of building blocks at the nanoscale. The researcher in Soft Matter Physics, who ...
Entanglement recycling makes teleportation more practical
Mathematical breakthrough sets out rules for more effective teleportation
For the last ten years, theoretical physicists have shown that the intense connections generated between particles as established in the quantum law of 'entanglement' may hold the key to eventual teleportation of quantum ...
