Accuracy of the NPL caesium fountain clock further improved
In 2011, the NPL caesium fountain primary frequency standard (NPL-CsF2) was hailed as the most accurate long-term timekeeper in the world, as it would lose or gain only one second in 138 million years. Now, ...
Video: Decentralized control of multiple robots under uncertainty
Writing a program to control a single autonomous robot navigating an uncertain environment with an erratic communication link is hard enough; write one for multiple robots that may or may not have to work ...
Researchers use quantum entanglement to improve differential interference contrast microscopy
Toward new precision in measuring the neutron lifetime
(Phys.org) —A team of PML scientists, with collaborators elsewhere, has achieved a five-fold reduction in the dominant uncertainty in an experiment that measured the mean lifetime of the free neutron (exceptionally ...
Research team challenges the limits of famous quantum principle
(Phys.org) —A team of physicists is challenging the very limits of Heisenberg's famous uncertainty principle by measuring quantum particles with unprecedented accuracy.
Developing better weather forecasts
By being more precise in what is uncertain, the weather forecasts will become more reliable. A new method for forecasting the weather is now being developed at Uni Research.
Open innovation collaboration puts new demands on leadership
Anna Yström is now defending her thesis on how open innovation collaboration – the context in which different organisations meet and work together to create knowledge and innovation – can be led. For four years, she ...
Climate change news reports focus on 'disaster' or 'uncertainty'
(Phys.org) —An Oxford University study shows that recent newspaper articles covering climate change are centred on narratives about disaster and uncertainty.
Minimising employee uncertainty key challenge for CEOs
In a tough economic environment dominated by increased competition for jobs, minimising uncertainty has become a key challenge for chief executives.
New measure of gravitational constant higher than expected
Teleportation just got easier—but not for you, unfortunately
Thanks to two studies published in Nature last Thursday, the chance of successful teleportation has considerably increased. Which is a good thing, right? ...
'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.
Study examines how uncertainty can affect political tolerance
(Phys.org) —It's a safe bet that in the course of perusing the news on a daily basis, you are confronted with political messages that differ from your own beliefs. But how open are you to those viewpoints? Are you in a ...
