May 23, 2016 — Scientists have designed an optically active nanosized supercrystal whose novel architecture can help separate organic molecules, thus considerably facilitating the technology of drug ... read more

May 19, 2016 — Scientists have demonstrated a method to produce significant amounts of semiconducting nanoparticles for light-emitting displays, sensors, solar panels and biomedical ... read more

Photon Collisions: Photonic Billiards Might Be the Newest Game!

May 19, 2016 — When one snooker ball hits another, both spring away from each other in an elastic manner. In the case of two photons a similar process -- the elastic collision -- has never been observed. Physicists ... read more

You Were Right: Rotational Motion Is Relative, Too, Mr. Einstein!

May 18, 2016 — It has been one hundred100 years since the publication of Einstein's general theory of relativity in May 1916. Physicists have now demonstrated that the rotational motion in the universe is also ... read more

Bending Hot Molecules

May 18, 2016 — Hot molecules are found in extreme environments such as the edges of fusion reactors. For simulations that e.g. help to understand the physics of planetary atmospheres, it is crucial to know how ... read more

May 18, 2016 — Scientists have developed a new type of graphene-based transistor and using modelling they have demonstrated that it has ultralow power consumption compared with other similar transistor devices. The ... read more

Technique Improves Efficacy of Fuel Cells

May 16, 2016 — Fuel cells, which generate electricity from chemical reactions without harmful emissions, have the potential to power everything from cars to portable electronics, and could be cleaner and more ... read more

Theorists Smooth the Way to Modeling Quantum Friction

May 16, 2016 — Theoretical chemists have pioneered a strategy for modeling quantum friction, or how a particle's environment drags on it, a vexing problem that has frustrated scientists for more than a ... read more

May 16, 2016 — Physicists are putting themselves out of a job, using artificial intelligence to run a complex experiment. The experiment created an extremely cold gas trapped in a laser beam, known as a ... read more

May 13, 2016 — In traditional light-harvesting methods, energy from one photon only excites one electron or none depending on the absorber's energy gap. The remaining energy is lost as heat. But a new article ... read more

Laser Pulses: Conductors for Protons

May 13, 2016 — Scientists have managed to manipulate the positions of atoms in hydrocarbon molecules using ultrashort laser ... read more

May 13, 2016 — Physicists have succeeded in measuring the very weak van der Waals forces between individual atoms for the first time. To do this, they fixed individual noble gas atoms within a molecular network and ... read more

May 12, 2016 — Researchers found how substantial linear defects in a new semiconductor create entirely new properties. Some of these properties indicate the defects might even mediate superconducting ... read more

May 12, 2016 — Flick a switch on a dark winter day and your office is flooded with bright light, one of many everyday miracles to which we are all usually oblivious. A physicist would probably describe what is ... read more

May 12, 2016 — Stanford and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory jointly run the world's leading program for isolating and studying diamondoids — the tiniest possible specks of diamond. Found naturally in ... read more

Quantum Physics Inside a Drop of Paint

May 12, 2016 — Inside a drop of paint, light is scattered so often that it seems impossible to demonstrate quantum effects. But despite the thousands of possible paths the light can take, like a drunk person inside ... read more

May 11, 2016 — Researchers have uncovered key features of the dynamics of a form of jerky motion responsible for phenomena as diverse as squeaks and squeals in door hinges and automotive brakes, joint wear in the ... read more

May 11, 2016 — Experiments prove that basic collider concepts from particle physics can be transferred to solid-state ... read more

May 11, 2016 — Scientists have uncovered the secret of the 'Mona Lisa of chemical reactions' -- in a bacterium that lives at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. It is hoped the discovery could lead to the ... read more

May 11, 2016 — Scientists have devised a way to build a “quantum metamaterial” -- an engineered material with exotic properties not found in nature -- using ultracold atoms trapped in an artificial crystal ... read more
