Could classical theory be just as weird as quantum theory?
Physicists offer a solution to the puzzle of the origin of matter in the universe
Most of the laws of nature treat particles and antiparticles equally, but stars and planets are made of particles, or matter, and not antiparticles, or antimatter. That asymmetry, which favors matter to a very small degree, ...
New research signals big future for quantum radar
A prototype quantum radar that has the potential to detect objects which are invisible to conventional systems has been developed by an international research team led by a quantum information scientist at the University ...
New 'knobs' can dial in control of materials
Designing or exploring new materials is all about controlling their properties. In a new study, Cornell scientists offer insight on how different "knobs" can change material properties in ways that were previously ...
Scientists go to great lengths to extend superlow friction
Cesium atoms shaken, not stirred, to create elusive excitation in superfluid
Scientists discovered in 1937 that liquid helium-4, when chilled to extremely low temperatures, became a superfluid that could leak through glass, overflow its containers, or eternally gush like a fountain.
Pinpointing the magnetic moments of nuclear matter
A team of nuclear physicists has made a key discovery in its quest to shed light on the structure and behavior of subatomic particles.
