Cool electron acceleration
Physicists from the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics produced electron pulses from a laser accelerator whose individual particles all have nearly the same, tuneable energy.
Researchers suggest gas cloud could reveal black holes near center of Milky Way galaxy
Theorists apply loop quantum gravity theory to black hole
Meta-transmitarray offers unprecedented control of light on subwavelength scales
More precision from less predictability: A new quantum trade-off
An important advance in the quantitative understanding and experimental verification of complementarity; arguably the most important foundational principle of quantum mechanics.
Physics team entangles photons that never coexisted in time
Researchers 'light' magnetic fire and analyse how energy propagates
The propagation of the so-called 'magnetic fire' in certain systems seems to be "the only combustion process ruled by quantum laws known in the nature", points out Javier Tejada, Professor of Condensed Matter ...
Experiment investigates how classical physics may emerge from quantum physics
Physicists suggest possible existence of other kinds of dark matter
Research team finds that the ratio of component atoms vital to performance
There has been great interest in recent years in using tiny particles called quantum dots to produce low-cost, easily manufactured, stable photovoltaic cells. But, so far, the creation of such cells has been ...
Researchers develop some of the world's smallest metallic nanorods
(Phys.org) —Two graduate-level researchers in the School of Engineering have grown some of the world's smallest metallic nanorods; a significant scientific breakthrough that their faculty advisor says is ...
A new laser paradigm: An electrically injected polariton laser
Engineering researchers at the University of Michigan have demonstrated a paradigm-shifting "polariton" laser that's fueled not by light, but by electricity.
RUB physicists let magnetic dipoles interact on the nanoscale for the first time
Physicists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have found out how tiny islands of magnetic material align themselves when sorted on a regular lattice - by measurements at BESSY II. Contrary to expectations, the north and ...
Physicists light 'magnetic fire' to reveal energy's path
New York University physicists have uncovered how energy is released and dispersed in magnetic materials in a process akin to the spread of forest fires, a finding that has the potential to deepen our understanding of self-sustained ...
