Single-atom transistor is 'perfect'
In a remarkable feat of micro-engineering, UNSW physicists have created a working transistor consisting of a single atom placed precisely in a silicon crystal.
'Listening' to black holes form with gravity waves
New technology that breaks the quantum measurement barrier has been developed to detect the gravity waves first predicted by Einstein in 1916.
Dark matter may be an illusion caused by the quantum vacuum
Superfluids: Observation of 'second sound' in a quantum gas
Second sound is a quantum mechanical phenomenon, which has been observed only in superfluid helium. Physicists from the University of Innsbruck, Austria, in collaboration with colleagues from the University ...
First, fast, and faster
(Phys.org) -- Scientists in PML's Quantum Measurement Division have produced the first superluminal light pulses made by using a technique called four-wave mixing, creating two separate pulses whose peaks ...
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 ...
First observation of spin Hall effect in a quantum gas is step toward 'atomtronics'
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have reported in Nature the first observation of the "spin Hall effect" in a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), a cloud of ultracold atoms acting ...
How we recreated the early universe in the laboratory
One of the all-time great mysteries in physics is why our universe contains more matter than antimatter, which is the equivalent of matter but with the opposite charge. To tackle this question, our international team of researchers have managed to create a plasm ...
