t turns out that coughs and sneezes create gas clouds that keep potentially infectious droplets aloft for far longer than researchers previously realized.
Quantum computing could be closer than ever. Scientists have used a laser to place individual rubidium atoms near the surface of a lattice of light, which means that there's a new method for connecting particles which, in turn, could help develop quantum computing systems.
Researchers have made novel measurements of the universe by using BOSS, the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey, when the universe was a mere three billion years old.
The fundamental laws of thermodynamics do not apply to objects on the nanoscale to the extent they do in our macroscopic world. A team of researchers describe how heat can transfer from cold to hot objects in the nanoworld.
System could provide first method for filtering light waves based on direction.
In the world of quantum science, Alice and Bob have been talking to one another for years. Charlie joined the conversation a few years ago, but now with spacelike separation, scientists have measured that their communication occurs faster than the speed of light.
Physics is on the front pages of newspapers around the world. This time it is because of the announcement made by a team of scientists who seem to have found indirect evidence for the existence of “primordial gravitational waves”.
The swings in market prices and exchange rates have the same foundations as molecule movements in physics. This has been demonstrated by a team of scientists from Switzerland and Japan.
Team creates LEDs, photovoltaic cells, and light detectors using novel one-molecule-thick material.
Our unfolding understanding of the universe is marked by epic searches and we are now on the brink of discovering something that has escaped detection for many years.
Researchers propose using distant quasars to test Bell's theorem.
Although magma stored beneath the volcanic surface can remain solid for thousands of years, it can also take only a few months to heat up and cause an eruption. Now, scientists have examined Mount Hood to get a closer look at this phenomenon.
