Sep. 1, 2015 — A major international collaboration is laying the technical groundwork for taking individual, atomic-scale portraits of intact viruses, living bacteria and other microscopic samples using the ... read more

Aug. 28, 2015 — Even large objects obey quantum physics, meaning they are never quite at rest. Researchers have developed a way to detect -- and manipulate -- this underlying quantum ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — A team of physicists has found new hints of particles -- leptons, to be more precise -- being treated in strange ways not predicted by the Standard Model. The discovery could prove to be a ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — Physicists have succeeded in synthesizing boron-doped graphene nanoribbons and characterizing their structural, electronic and chemical properties. The modified material could potentially be used as ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — Physicists have found a radical new way confine electromagnetic energy without it leaking away, akin to throwing a pebble into a pond with no splash.The theory could have broad ranging applications ... read more

Aug. 26, 2015 — A new study has demonstrated a new, efficient way to accelerate positrons, the antimatter opposites of electrons. The method may help boost the energy and shrink the size of future linear particle ... read more

Aug. 26, 2015 — Researchers are using high-performance computing to simulate the processes that take place during the first moments of photosynthesis. Using quantum mechanics as the basis, computer scientists, ... read more

Aug. 25, 2015 — Researchers in Japan successfully developed single-crystal phosphors that use a blue LD (laser diode) as an excitation light source, are suitable for ultra-bright, high-power white lighting, and have ... read more

Aug. 25, 2015 — Quantum physics tell us that even massive particles can behave like waves, as if they could be in several places at once. This phenomenon is typically proven in the diffraction of a matter wave at a ... read more

Aug. 25, 2015 — New research has found that water molecules react differently to electric fields, which could provide a new way to study spin isomers at the single-molecule level. Water molecules exist in two forms ... read more

Aug. 25, 2015 — A research team has shown that at extremely high pressure even the innermost electrons in atoms of the metal osmium begin to interact with each other, a phenomenon never witnessed ... read more

Aug. 24, 2015 — The first use of biological proteins to maneuver chemical polymers has created nerve-like structures that could serve as a gentler interface between nerves and prosthetic ... read more

Aug. 24, 2015 — A team of physicists has taken a step toward making the essential building block of quantum computers out of pure light. Their advance has to do with logic gates that perform operations on input data ... read more

Aug. 24, 2015 — The combination of ab-initio numerical experiments and theory shows that optical tunneling of an electron from an atom can occur ... read more

Aug. 21, 2015 — With a new design that sandwiches a polar metallic oxide between insulating materials at the nanoscale, the resulting multiferroic superlattice could open the door for improved ... read more

Graphene Oxide's Secret Properties Revealed at Atomic Level

Aug. 21, 2015 — Scientists have found that graphene oxide's inherent defects give rise to a surprising mechanical property caused by an unusual mechanochemical ... read more

Aug. 21, 2015 — A professor has made the 'magic' sphere for information transfer. In several years our computers, nanoantennas and other kinds of equipment will operate on the base of photons, rather than ... read more

Next Generation of High Power Lasers Developed

Aug. 21, 2015 — Researchers are developing groundbreaking plasma based light amplifiers that could replace traditional high power laser ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — Results of the XENON100 experiment are a bright spot in the search for dark matter. The team of international scientists involved in the project demonstrated the sensitivity of their detector and ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — Is dark energy hard to detect because it's hiding from us? According to a recent theory, hypothetical particles called chameleons vary in mass depending on nearby matter: in the vacuum of space, ... read more
