The system that helps Stephen Hawking communicate with the outside world will be made available online from January in a move that could help millions of motor neurone disease sufferers, scientists said Tuesday.
In this month's issue of Physics World, James Dacey explores the ways in which physicists are bridging the "valley of death" to take their innovations from the lab into the commercial market.
Researchers control interplay of light and matter at the level of individual photons emitted by rubidium
Researchers led by Dr. Sebastian Slama of Tübingen University's Institute of Physics have succeeded in directing the fluorescence of ultracold atoms into surface plasmons – light waves oscillating across a metal surface. ...
A physics institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara, has received a $65 million donation—the largest single gift in the university's history.
Theoretical physicists are caricatured in the popular imagination as only involved in abstruse and difficult-to-imagine topics. But some of these theoretical physicists are involved in something closer to home: using artificial ...
New prospects for secure data traffic: Flashes of light in particularly sensitive quantum states can be transmitted through the atmosphere.
Scientists believe they have found a way to explain why there are not as many galaxies orbiting the Milky Way as expected.
A quantum effect in which excited atoms team up to emit an enhanced pulse of light can be turned on its head to create 'superabsorbing' systems to make the 'ultimate camera pixel'.
In the early evening of July 2, 2014, the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory reached 25 milliamps of current at 3 GeV (3 billion electron volts) ...
