Graphene mini-lab

A team of physicists from Europe and South Africa showed that electrons moving randomly in graphene can mimic the dynamics of particles such as cosmic rays, despite travelling at a fraction of their speed, in a paper about ...

Experiments illuminate how order arises in the cosmos

(Phys.org)—One of the unsolved mysteries of contemporary science is how highly organized structures can emerge from the random motion of particles. This applies to many situations ranging from astrophysical objects that ...

Light pulses take a quantum walk

Tourists who drift aimlessly during a sightseeing tour are moving randomly - just like electrons that move from one atom to the next. To obtain a better understanding of these random motions it is often useful to reduce their ...

Researchers discover critical rotational motion in cells

In a study that holds major implications for breast cancer research as well as basic cell biology, scientists with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have discovered a rotational motion that plays a ...
