Four reasons why the quantum vacuum may explain dark matter
Scientists create light from vacuum
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology have succeeded in creating light from vacuum observing an effect first predicted over 40 years ago. The results will be published tomorrow ...
Dark matter may be an illusion caused by the quantum vacuum
Researchers create light from 'almost nothing'
Physicists describe method to observe timelike entanglement
Research gives insight into using graphene in electronics
(PhysOrg.com) -- New findings from the laboratory of University of Illinois researcher Joe Lyding are providing valuable insight into graphene, a single two-dimensional layer of graphite with numerous electronic and mechanical ...
Random numbers game with quantum dice
(PhysOrg.com) -- A simple device measures the quantum noise of vacuum fluctuations and generates true random numbers.
Scientists watch chemical bond break using molecule's electrons
Scientists at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the University of Ottawa (uOttawa) enjoyed a bird's eye view of a chemical bond as it breaks.
Physicists lay the groundwork for cooler, faster computing
University of Toronto quantum optics researchers Sajeev John and Xun Ma have discovered new behaviours of light within photonic crystals that could lead to faster optical information processing and compact computers that ...
Atoms don't dance the 'Bose Nova'
(PhysOrg.com) -- Hanns-Christoph Naegerl's research group at the Institute for Experimental Physics, Austria, has investigated how ultracold quantum gases behave in lower spatial dimensions. They successfully ...
Physicist takes a quantum leap
(PhysOrg.com) -- A University of Queensland physicist is seeking answers to a persistent problem throughout human history: how do I compute things? None, however, have had the same impact as what we today know as simply the ...
The day the universe froze: New dark energy model includes cosmological phase transition
Imagine a time when the entire universe froze. According to a new model for dark energy, that is essentially what happened about 11.5 billion years ago, when the universe was a quarter of the size it is today.
