Generating Mobius strips of light: Researchers experimentally produce these structures from light polarization
A collaboration of researchers from Canada, Europe and the USA have experimentally produced Möbius strips from the polarization of light, confirming a theoretical prediction that it is possible for light's ...
Halting photons could lead to miniature particle accelerators, improved data transmission
Researchers at MIT who succeeded last year in creating a material that could trap light and stop it in its tracks have now developed a more fundamental understanding of the process. The new work—which could ...

Cassini sees sunny seas on Titan
(Phys.org) —As it soared past Saturn's large moon Titan recently, NASA's Cassini spacecraft caught a glimpse of bright sunlight reflecting off hydrocarbon seas.
Spin-based electronics: New material successfully tested
Spintronics is an emerging field of electronics, where devices work by manipulating the spin of electrons rather than the current generated by their motion. This field can offer significant advantages to ...
Study suggests large waves may have bigger role in breaking up polar sea ice than thought
Magnetic topological insulators are 1,000 times more energy-efficient for switching
(Phys.org) —Topological insulators are an emerging class of materials that act as both insulators and conductors, and could potentially be used in smartphones, computers and other electronic devices.
Radiation from early universe found key to answer major questions in physics
(Phys.org) —Astrophysicists at UC San Diego have measured the minute gravitational distortions in polarized radiation from the early universe and discovered that these ancient microwaves can provide an ...
Today's Antarctic region once as hot as California, Florida
Parts of ancient Antarctica were as warm as today's California coast, and polar regions of the southern Pacific Ocean registered 21st-century Florida heat, according to scientists using a new way to measure ...
