Physicists find that an ultrahigh-energy proton looks like a black disk
Cheap, abundant cathode material found for producing hydrogen fuel (w/ video)
Could dark baryons explain dark matter?
Evidence for a new nuclear 'magic number'
Researchers have come one step closer to understanding unstable atomic nuclei. A team of researchers from RIKEN, the University of Tokyo and other institutions in Japan and Italy has provided evidence for ...
Two collider research teams find evidence of new particle Zc(3900)
Unexpected data from the Large Hadron Collider suggest the collisions may be producing a new type of matter
Collisions between protons and lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have produced surprising behavior in some of the particles created by the collisions. The new observation suggests the collisions ...
'Tunable' metal nanostructures for fuel cells, batteries and solar energy
(PhysOrg.com) -- For catalysts in fuel cells and electrodes in batteries, engineers would like to manufacture metal films that are porous, to make more surface area available for chemical reactions, and highly ...
Scientists discover a surprising new way that protons can move among molecules
When a proton the bare nucleus of a hydrogen atom transfers from one molecule to another, or moves within a molecule, the result is a hydrogen bond, in which the proton and another atom like ...
Electron's negativity cut in half by supercomputer
(PhysOrg.com) -- While physicists at the Large Hadron Collider smash together thousands of protons and other particles to see what matter is made of, they're never going to hurl electrons at each other. No ...
Contested 'faster-than-light' experiment yields results
A fiercely contested experiment that appears to show the accepted speed limit of the Universe can be broken has yielded the same results in a re-run, European physicists said.
Scientists take fresh look at 'faster-than-light' experiment
Scientists who threw down the gauntlet to physics by reporting particles that broke the Universe's speed limit said on Friday they were revisiting their contested experiment.
Proton-based transistor could let machines communicate with living things
Human devices, from light bulbs to iPods, send information using electrons. Human bodies and all other living things, on the other hand, send signals and perform work using ions or protons.
A hint of Higgs: An update from the LHC
The physics world was abuzz with some tantalizing news a couple of weeks ago. At a meeting of the European Physical Society in Grenoble, France, physicists -- including some from Caltech -- announced that ...
