The strangeness of slow dynamics

In a recent article published in Physical Review Letters, researchers from the nanomagnetism group at nanoGUNE reported hitherto unknown anomalies near dynamic phase transitions (DPTs). Such anomalies do not exist in corresponding ...

Understanding what's happening inside liquid droplets

For most people, the drip, drip, drip of a leaking faucet would be an annoyance. But for Georgia Institute of Technology Ph.D. candidate Alexandros Fragkopoulos, what happens inside droplets is the stuff of serious science.

Researchers obtain supersolidity state experimentally

When matter is cooled to near absolute zero, intriguing phenomena emerge. These include supersolidity, where crystalline structure and frictionless flow occur together. ETH researchers have succeeded in realising this strange ...

Understanding and predicting snow behavior

Engineers from the University of Luxembourg are working together with scientists from the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF in Switzerland to better analyse mechanical properties of snow. The project has the ...

Exploring the mysteries of supercooled water

There are few things more central to life on earth than water. It dominates the physical landscape, covering much of the planet as oceans. It's also a major component of the human body, comprising, for example, more than ...

Scientists solve puzzle of turning graphite into diamond

(—Researchers have finally answered a question that has eluded scientists for years: when exposed to moderately high pressures, why does graphite turn into hexagonal diamond (also called lonsdaleite) and not the ...

Laser heating hits the spot

A method for accurately measuring the thermomagnetic properties of heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) media reveals what the minimum bit size and ultimate data density might be for this next generation storage technology.
