Solitons Acquire Chirality

Oct. 8, 2015 — A team of Korean scientists has discovered a new class of solitons, which they named chiral ... read more

Oct. 7, 2015 — Researchers compared three different drug delivery models based on ionic liquids. Scientists have developed a powerful API-IL concept to access structural diversity and dual-action pharmaceuticals. ... read more

Oct. 6, 2015 — How long do neutrons live? The answer could change how we think everything from the cosmos to coffee cups. Yet, scientists don’t agree on the neutron longevity. The disagreement is fanned by the ... read more

Oct. 6, 2015 — In 2014, the Majorana Demonstrator started its search for neutrinoless double beta decay. Observation of this decay would have profound implications for our understanding of physics, including ... read more

Oct. 6, 2015 — A single-electron transistor is an electrical device that takes advantage of a strange quantum phenomenon called tunneling to transport single electrons across a thin insulator. The device serves as ... read more

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 — Physicists have wondered in recent years if they could control how atoms interact using light. Now they know that they can, by demonstrating games of quantum billiards with unusual new ... 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 — The superconductivity effect has been revealed by researchers which, they say, will help to create future supercomputers. The researchers studied the interactions between superconductivity and ... read more

Oct. 5, 2015 — A key achievement in shrinking photonic devices below the diffraction limit -- a necessary step on the road to making photonic circuits competitive with today's technology -- has been revealed ... 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
