Better light measurement through quantum cloning
Physicists get an up-close look at synthetic quantum materials
(PhysOrg.com) -- Physicists at Harvard University have, for the first time, tracked individual atoms in a gas cooled to extreme temperatures as the particles reorganized into a crystal, a process driven by ...
Record measurement of extremely small magnetic fields
Researchers at the research center QUANTOP at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) have constructed an atomic magnetometer, which has achieved the highest sensitivity allowed ...
Brown physicist discovers odd, fluctuating magnetic waves
At the quantum level, the forces of magnetism and superconductivity exist in an uneasy relationship. Superconducting materials repel a magnetic field, so to create a superconducting current, the magnetic forces ...
Researcher studies the universe through quantum electrodynamics
(PhysOrg.com) -- Fundamental constants, such as the standards for length and mass, are a given in our society. However, research has shown that these constants might be changing slightly with the expansion of the universe.
