Physicists have extended evidence of quantum behavior further into the large-scale world of everyday life. They've managed to "entangle" a microscopic mechanical drum with electrical signals. The findings could have implications for the future of quantum computers.
It turns out that some droplets are a bit more powerful than others. Scientists have discovered that tiny water droplets that form on a superhydrophobic surface and then "jump" away carry an electric charge.
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 ...
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.
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.
