Researchers discover way to allow 80 percent of sound to pass through walls
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.
LHCb experiment observes new matter-antimatter difference
(Phys.org) —The LHCb collaboration at CERN today submitted a paper to Physical Review Letters on the first observation of matter-antimatter asymmetry in the decays of the particle known as the B0s. It is only the fourth sub-at ...
Micro-macro entangled 'cat states' could one day test quantum gravity
Simulation shows it's possible to move H2O@C60 using electrical charge
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.
Meta-transmitarray offers unprecedented control of light on subwavelength scales
Physicists eye neural fly data, find formula for Zipf's law
Physicists have identified a mechanism that may help explain Zipf's law – a unique pattern of behavior found in disparate systems, including complex biological ones. The journal Physical Review Letters is pub ...
Quantum-to-classical transition may be explained by fuzziness of measurement references
How did evolution optimize circadian clocks?
Using black holes to measure the Universe's rate of expansion
(Phys.org)—Prof. Hagai Netzer of Tel Aviv University has developed a method that uses black holes to measure distances of billions of light years with a high degree of accuracy. The ability to measure these ...
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 ...
Physicists propose measure of macroscopicity; Schrodinger's cat scores a 57
Deceptive-looking vortex line in superfluid led to twice-mistaken identity
(Phys.org) —So long, solitons: University of Chicago physicists have shown that a group of scientists were incorrect when they concluded that a mysterious effect found in superfluids indicated the presence ...
