Tiny, easy-to-produce particles, called quantum dots, may soon take the place of more expensive single crystal semiconductors in advanced electronics found in solar panels, camera sensors and medical imaging tools.
New results from STAR experiment show antiquarks' contribution to proton spin depends on 'flavor' -- and in a way that's opposite to those flavors' relative abundance
EAST LANSING, Mich. - Trihydrogen, or H3+, is acknowledged by scientists as the molecule that made the universe. In recent issues of Nature Communications and the Journal of Chemical Physics, Michigan State University researchers employed high-speed lasers to shine a spotlight on the mechanisms that...
Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology teamed up with colleagues from the U.S. and Switzerland and returned the state of a quantum computer a fraction of a second into the past. They also calculated the probability that an electron in empty interstellar space will spontaneou...
Physicists in the EPic Lab at the University of Sussex make crucial development in the global race to develop a portable atomic clock
Physicists have discovered surprisingly complex states emerging out of simple synchronized networks
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a novel way to solve a quantum problem.
A new type of light-emitting diode lightbulb could one day light homes and reduce power bills, according to Penn State researchers who suggest that LEDs made with firefly-mimicking structures could improve efficiency.
Rutgers and other physicists have discovered an exotic form of electrons that spin like planets and could lead to advances in lighting, solar cells, lasers and electronic displays.
Physicists at McMaster University have for the first time identified a simple mechanism used by potentially deadly bacteria to fend off antibiotics, a discovery which is providing new insights into how germs adapt and behave at a level of detail never seen before.
Ruthenium catalyst has potential applications in sustainable hydrogen production for clean energy and in industrial processes
