Mysterious IceCube event may be caused by a tau neutrino

Eight years ago, the IceCube detector, a research center located at the South Pole to detect neutrinos emanating from the cosmos, was commissioned. Three years later, it began to register the first momentous results. The ...

Observation of anisotropic magneto-Peltier effect

NIMS and Tohoku University have jointly observed an anisotropic magneto-Peltier effect—a thermoelectric conversion phenomenon in which simple redirection of a charge current in a magnetic material induces heating and cooling. ...

Tiny quantum device to redefine ampere

EU-funded scientists have succeeded in redefining the ampere in terms of fundamental constants of physics. Based on the electron charge, the newly developed microscopic device has been reported as the most accurate technique ...

Diamond watch components

SNSF-funded researchers have developed a new technique for carving materials to create micromechanical systems. In particular, they have created a miniscule watch component out of synthetic single-crystal diamond.

Tracking down the mystery of entangled particles of light

Bernese researchers have taken an important step towards new measurement methods such as quantum spectroscopy. In an experiment, they succeeded in uncovering part of the mystery surrounding the so-called "entangled photons" ...

Tracking energy flow in large molecules

Absorption of light energy by large molecules is what drives nature: photosynthesis, vision, the synthesis of vitamin D and many other critical processes use light energy to perform their functions.
