First glimpse of hydrodynamic electron flow in 3D materials

Electrons flow through most materials more like a gas than a fluid, meaning they don't interact much with one another. It was long hypothesized that electrons could flow like a fluid, but only recent advances in materials ...

Scientists simulate a black hole in a water tank

Certain phenomena that occur in black holes but cannot be directly observed in astronomic investigations can be studied by means of a laboratory simulation. This is possible due to a peculiar analogy between processes that ...
