It turns out that small droplets are a lot more unusual than you might think. Physicists have managed to make a small fluid droplet levitate on the surface of a vibrating bath, walking or bouncing across as it's propelled by its own wave field.
A subatomic soup filled our early universe. Yet it eventually "froze out" to form the atoms of today's world. Now, scientists are taking a closer look at this subatomic soup and the transition that took place by examining the nuclear phase diagram, a type of map that reveals different phases of the ...
An X-ray light beam with a diameter of just 5 nanometers was created by researchers from University of Gottingen. This fine X -ray beam can advance materials research, including search for nanowires that can be used to make efficient solar cells.
Black holes may not be as smooth as scientists once believed. One theory seems to indicate that these black holes may have "hair." The findings could lead to a new understanding of black holes, which could impact future models.
Could particle accelerators be small enough to fit on a grain of rice? Apparently they could in the future. Scientists have used a laser to accelerate electrons at a rate 10 times higher than conventional technology in a nanostructured glass chip. The findings could dramatically alter the way we use...
You may not be able to channel the Force, but you may be able to wield a light saber. Researchers have managed to coax photons into binding together to form molecules, a state of matter that, until recently, had been purely theoretical.
A team of Stanford engineers has developed a basic computer using carbon nanotubes, paving the way for the next generation of energy-efficient electronics.
Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology have succeeded in combining graphene light detectors with semiconductor chips, a crucially important step to develop highly advanced and miniaturized optoelectronics.
Not only does icephobic research have the potential to improve everyday products like ice cream scoops, car windshields, and metal roofs, but it will also have a broad impact across industry (for example, in studying ice buildup on turbine blades, airplanes, and oil and gas rigs).
The gravitational strength on Earth varies because Earth is not a perfect sphere of homogenous (uniform) mass density.
Want to control light? Scientists have discovered a new way to do so. They've demonstrated the ability of two-dimensional disordered photonic band gap material to be a platform to control light in unprecedented ways.
