June 27, 2015 — A group collaborating across four American laboratories completed the first successful tests of a superconducting coil in preparation for the future high-luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron ... read more

Destructive Power of Bubbles Could Lead to New Industrial Applications

June 22, 2015 — Cavitation bubbles can kill fish and damage boat propellers. Researcher say learning more about them could harness that power for industrial uses, like safer cleaning ... read more

June 22, 2015 — Scientists built nanoscale mirrors to trap light around atoms inside of diamond crystals. The mirrored cavities allow light to bounce back and forth up to 10,000 times, enhancing the normally weak ... read more

June 22, 2015 — A basic characteristic of elementary particles, spin is used daily in certain imaging techniques; yet, previous studies of the mechanics behind proton spin did not add up. An experiment at the ... read more

June 19, 2015 — Colliding lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider creates tiny samples of matter at energy densities that have not occurred since microseconds after the Big Bang. At these densities, ordinary matter ... read more

June 17, 2015 — Researchers have predicted, in theory, that superconducting surfaces can become topological superconductors when magnetic iron atoms are deposited on the surface in a regular pattern. They used the ... read more

June 16, 2015 — Scientists published first experimental results showing that ordinary nanocrystals possess intrinsic chirality and can be produced under normal conditions as a half-and-half mixture of mirror images ... read more

June 16, 2015 — An international team of physicists has measured the mass of a "strange" atomic nucleus with the aid of an innovative technique that is capable of significantly greater precision than that ... read more

June 16, 2015 — Einstein's theory of time and space will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year. Even today it captures the imagination of scientists. Scientists have now discovered that this world-famous ... read more

June 16, 2015 — Physicists have validated a novel laser-driven means of generating bright and highly energetic X-ray beams. The method opens up new ways of imaging the fine structure of matter, the researchers ... read more

June 16, 2015 — Scientists have observed, in metals for the first time, transient excitons – the primary response of free electrons to light. Detecting excitons in metals could provide clues on how light is turned ... read more

June 15, 2015 — Quantum dots promise an astounding range of applications, if scientists can conquer their annoying habit of blinking. Researchers recently ran simulations that offer new insights into the ... read more

June 14, 2015 — The first graphene quantum dot light-emitting diodes (GQD-LEDs), fabricated by using high-quantum-yield graphene quantum dots through graphite intercalation compounds, exhibit luminance in excess of ... read more

June 11, 2015 — Understanding the effects that ultra-intense x-ray pulses will have on their potential targets is being studied by various research ... read more

June 11, 2015 — Good quality and precision are essential – a dictum that also applies to products from the pharmaceutical and chemical industry. While the quality of chemical products is often still being ... read more

June 10, 2015 — Experimental physicists have successfully cooled molecules in a gas of sodium potassium to a temperature of 500 nanokelvins -- just a hair above absolute zero, and over a million times colder than ... read more

June 10, 2015 — Researchers have designed a novel metamaterial that buckles on demand. Small structural variations in the material single out regions that buckle selectively under external stress, whereas other ... read more

June 9, 2015 — Using an exotic quantum superfluid that originates in a two-dimensional atomic gas, researchers are closing in on the phenomenon of superconductivity. The team is using this special gas as a model ... read more

Getting to the Heart of the Matter: CERN's Hidden Heritage

June 8, 2015 — A nuclear physicist and an archaeologist have joined forces to produce a unique appraisal of the cultural significance of one of the world's most important locations for scientific inquiry: ... read more

June 8, 2015 — Scientists in the STAR collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, a particle accelerator exploring nuclear physics and the building blocks of matter, have new evidence for what's ... read more
