Physicists find enhanced fluctuations in nanomagnets
NYU physicists have discovered that nanomagnets—a billionth of a meter in size—with a preferred up or down magnetization are sensitive to heating or cooling, more than expected.
New groundbreaking research may expose new aspects of the universe
No one knows for sure, but it is not unlikely that the universe is constructed in a completely different way than the usual theories and models of today predict. The most widely used model today cannot explain ...
Is mathematics an effective way to describe the world?
Quantum measurement carries information even when the measurement outcome is unread
Physicist finds that E. coli replicate close to thermodynamic limits of efficiency
All living things must obey the laws of physics—including the second law of thermodynamics, which states that the universe's disorder, or entropy, can only grow. Highly ordered cells and organisms appear ...
Physicists suggest electrical networks more at risk of cascading failure than thought
Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
New nanomaterial increases yield of solar cells
Researchers from the FOM Foundation, Delft University of Technology, Toyota Motor Europe and the University of California have developed a nanostructure with which they can make solar cells highly efficient. ...
Two become one with the 3-D NanoChemiscope
The 3D NanoChemiscope is a miracle of state-of-the-art analysis technology. As a further development of well-known microscopic and mass spectroscopic methods, it maps the physical and chemical surfaces of ...
Better insight into molecular interactions
How molecules in biochemical solutions do interact, is a question of great importance for understanding processes in catalysts, functional materials and even in organisms. Until now, scientists could have ...
Teleportation just got easier—but not for you, unfortunately
Thanks to two studies published in Nature last Thursday, the chance of successful teleportation has considerably increased. Which is a good thing, right? ...
'Listening' to black holes form with gravity waves
New technology that breaks the quantum measurement barrier has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916.
Voyager 1 has left the solar system, says new study
(Phys.org) —Voyager 1 appears to have at long last left our solar system and entered interstellar space, says a University of Maryland-led team of researchers.
Quantum teleportation: Transfer of flying quantum bits at the touch of a button
By means of the quantum-mechanical entanglement of spatially separated light fields, researchers in Tokyo and Mainz have managed to teleport photonic qubits with extreme reliability. This means that a decisive breakthrough ...
