The 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics has officially been awarded to Isamu Akasaki of Meijo University in Japan and to Hiroshi Amano of Nagoya University in Japan and to Shuji Nakamura of the University of California.
Scientists have managed to teleport the quantum state of a photon to a crystal over 25 kilometers of optical fiber.
Understanding cosmic rays is an important part of understanding dark matter. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these rays, shedding light into the nature of the excess of positrons observed in the flux of cosmic rays.
Scientists have created a new detector that may eventually lead to a generation of devices that can peer below the surface of bodies, walls and other objects. Using graphene, scientists have constructed a prototype detector that can see a broad band of wavelengths.
Scientists may have come up with a novel model of dark mater, the mysterious substance that makes up about 80 percent of our universe. The findings could shed new light on the nature of dark matter and show the path for future research.
Could our entire world be an illusion? That's the question that scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory are asking.
Scientists may have developed a new way to confine oil spills. They've created a tractor beam on water, which could mean a new way to manipulate currents in a way to help contain environmental pollution.
The big bang may have jumpstarted our universe, but what exactly sparked it? That's a question that has long puzzled scientists. Now, though, they may have a new idea concerned what helped trigger the very beginnings of our universe.
What's that you said? Scientists can now listen to your conversation with the help of a potato-chip bag?
Scientists have discovered a new way to "bottle" sound waves. They've developed a technique for generating acoustic bottles in the open air that can bend the paths of sound waves along prescribed convex trajectories.
Superman can fly, leap over buildings, and accomplish feats that are, well, pretty superhuman. Yet this superhero doesn't just defy logic with his spectacular feats; he also defies the fundamental physics law of the conservation of energy.
When you have something as tiny as bacteria and spermatozoa, movement becomes a whole new challenge. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at self-propulsion in a bid to potentially design tiny, nano-scale swimming machines.
