(Phys.org) —A team of physicists is challenging the very limits of Heisenberg's famous uncertainty principle by measuring quantum particles with unprecedented accuracy.
Nearly 30 years after the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity, many questions remain, but an Oak Ridge National Laboratory team is providing insight that could lead to better superconductors.
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have proposed the first design of a cloaking device that uses an external source of energy to significantly broaden its bandwidth of operation.
(Phys.org) —By applying pressure to a semiconductor, researchers have been able to transform a semiconductor into a "topological insulator" (TI), an intriguing state of matter in which a material's interior is insulating ...
Imagine living on a bustling city block, but free from the noise of car horns and people on the street. The emerging field of phononics could one day make this a reality.
Using low-frequency laser pulses, a team of researchers has carried out the first measurements that reveal the detailed characteristics of a unique kind of magnetism found in a mineral called herbertsmithite.
