Universe may face a darker future
New research offers a novel insight into the nature of dark matter and dark energy and what the future of our Universe might be.
Biology meets geometry: Describing geometry of common cellular structure
Architecture imitates life, at least when it comes to those spiral ramps in multistory parking garages. Stacked and connecting parallel levels, the ramps are replications of helical structures found in a ...
Ultrafast electron diffraction experiments open a new window on the microscopic world
Researchers at McGill University have succeeded in simultaneously observing the reorganizations of atomic positions and electron distribution during the transformation of the "smart material" vanadium dioxide ...
Data from 'old' experiment appears to constrain the idea of dark photons as part of dark matter theory
What is the value of G?
NIST has taken part in a new push to address a persistent and growing problem in physics: the value of G. The Newtonian constant of gravitation, used to calculate the attractive force of gravity between objects, is more than ...
Syracuse physicists closer to understanding balance of matter, antimatter in universe
Physicists in Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences have made important discoveries regarding Bs meson particles—something that may explain why the Universe contains more matter than antimatter.
UC Santa Barbara receives $65M from Munger
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.
Pterostilbene, a molecule similar to resveratrol, as a potential treatment for obesity
In collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture, researchers in the UPV/EHU's 'Nutrition and Obesity' Group, which belongs to the Spanish Biomedical Research Centre in Physiopathology of ...
UF physicists win two top international awards
Each year, the American Physical Society prizes honor the world's leading physicists. This year, two of those coveted awards are going to researchers at the University of Florida.
