Oct. 6, 2015 — As the push for thinner and faster electronics continues, a new finding could help inform the design of the next generation of cheaper, more efficient ... read more

Physicists Shrink Particle Accelerator

Oct. 6, 2015 — Researchers have built the first prototype of a miniature particle accelerator that uses terahertz radiation instead of radio frequency structures. The terahertz technology holds the promise of ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — The efficiency of solar cells depends on precise engineering of polymers that assemble into films 1,000 times thinner than a human hair. Today, formation of that polymer assembly requires solvents ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — A newly upgraded high-power laser will blaze new trails across many fields of science by recreating the universe’s most extreme conditions, such as those at the heart of stars and planets, in a ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — Scientists have used a transmission electron microscope to record almost 3500 images in 3.5 seconds for the reconstruction of a 3D electron tomogram. Previously, 10 to 60 minutes and a ten-fold ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — A team of engineers has built a quantum logic gate in silicon for the first time, making calculations between two qubits of information possible -- and thereby clearing the final hurdle to making ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — A model microscopic system to demonstrate the transmission of torque in the presence of thermal fluctuations -- necessary for the creation of a tiny 'clutch' operating at the nanoscale -- ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — Physicists have developed a method to synthesize a unique and novel type of material which resembles a graphene nanoribbon but in molecular form. This material could be important for the further ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — Many of you will remember them from your physics lessons at school: often represented as colourful clouds or balloons, electron orbitals provide information on the whereabouts of the electrons in ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — Scientists have made simulations of the processes that happen when a layer of carbon atoms is irradiated with strong laser ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — A new class of light-emitting quantum dots (QDs) with tunable and equalized fluorescence brightness across a broad range of colors has been introduced by scientists. This results in more accurate ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — A series of experiments has created the tiniest drops of quark-gluon plasma ever made, scientists ... read more

Oct. 2, 2015 — Fusion reactors could become an economically viable means of generating electricity within a few decades, and policy makers should start planning to build them as a replacement for conventional ... read more

New Method Will Enable Most Accurate Neutron Measurement Yet

Oct. 2, 2015 — Our universe consists of significantly more matter than existing theories are able to explain. This is one of the great puzzles of modern science. One way to clarify this discrepancy is via the ... read more

Oct. 2, 2015 — What are the properties of the vacuum, the absolute nothingness? So far, physicists have assumed that it is impossible to directly access the characteristics of the ground state of empty space. Now, ... read more

Oct. 2, 2015 — Researchers have arrived at how what is known as time-reversal symmetry can break in one class of superconducting ... read more

Organics Energize Solar Cell Research

Oct. 1, 2015 — Scientists are using a new supercomputer to advance next-generation solar energy technologies by probing the functional interfaces found in organic and hybrid solar ... read more
