Scientists have shown the weird world of quantum mechanics operating in the molecule of life, DNA.
Researchers have developed a promising new fiber-optic based chemical sensing method that uses light inside a fiber to induce sound waves outside it, providing indirect information about what surrounds the fiber. By overcoming ...
University of Oregon physicists have combined light and sound to control electron states in an atom-like system, providing a new tool in efforts to move toward quantum-computing systems.
As mobile and wearable devices such as smartwatches grow smaller, it gets tougher for people to interact with screens the size of a matchbook.
New light has been shed on the processes by which ocean water enters the solid Earth during continental breakup.
Acoustic-gravity waves are very long sound waves that cut through the deep ocean at the speed of sound. These lightning-quick currents can sweep up water, nutrients, salts, and any other particles in their wake, at any water ...
Humans use the time delay between the arrival of a sound wave at each ear to discern the direction of the source. In frogs, lizards and birds the distance between the ears is too small. However, they have a cavity connecting ...
Acoustic tweezers that can move single cells in three dimensions using surface acoustic waves without touching, deforming or labeling the cells are possible, according to a team of engineers.
Like Beanie Babies and Steve Urkel, the systems we use to transmit information through water bring to mind the 1990s.
Acoustics experts have created a new class of sound wave - the first in more than half a century - in a breakthrough they hope could lead to a revolution in stem cell therapy.
