LHCb experiment observes two new baryon particles never seen before
(Phys.org) —Today the collaboration for the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of two new particles in the baryon family. The particles, known as the Xi_b'- and Xi_b*- ...
Gravity may have saved the universe after the Big Bang, say researchers
(Phys.org) —New research by a team of European physicists could explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang.
Simon's algorithm run on quantum computer for the first time—faster than on standard computer
Wild molecular interactions in a new hydrogen mixture
Hydrogen—the most abundant element in the cosmos—responds to extremes of pressure and temperature differently. Under ambient conditions hydrogen is a gaseous two-atom molecule. As confinement pressure ...
New mechanism of photoconduction could lead to next-generation excitonic devices
It's a well-known phenomenon in electronics: Shining light on a semiconductor, such as the silicon used in computer chips and solar cells, will make it more conductive. But now researchers have discovered ...
