Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have helped to find the last reservoir of ordinary matter hiding in the universe.
Take a glass thread a thousand times thinner than a human hair. Use it as a wire between two metals. Hit it with a laser pulse that lasts a millionth of a billionth of a second.
A scientist at Duke University says the natural evolution of social organizations into larger and more complex communities that exhibit distinct hierarchies can be predicted from the same law of physics that gives rise to ...
Researchers more than doubled the ability of a material to convert heat into electricity, which could help reduce the amount of wasted heat, and thus wasted fossil fuel, in daily activities and industries.
A team of researchers at EMBL have expanded Alan Turing's seminal theory on how patterns are created in biological systems. This work, which was partly done at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), may answer whether nature's ...
Infrared cameras are the heat-sensing eyes that help drones find their targets, even in the dead of night or through heavy fog.
Lasers—used in medicine, manufacturing and made wildly popular by science fiction—are finding a new use in particle physics.
In the space inside a computer chip, where electricity becomes information, there's a scientific frontier. The same frontier can be found inside a cell, where information instead takes the form of chemical concentrations. ...
Most of us have an understanding of what atmospheric turbulence is – nauseating plane movement is hard to forget.
A deep neural network running on an ordinary desktop computer is interpreting highly technical data related to national security as well as—and sometimes better than—today's best automated methods or even human experts.
