‘Demon’ could help create quantum computer

Reduced entropy in a three-dimensional lattice of super-cooled, laser-trapped atoms could help speed progress toward creating quantum computers. A team of researchers at Penn...

Quantum weirdness in ‘chicken or egg’ paradox

The "chicken or egg" paradox was first proposed by philosophers in Ancient Greece to describe the problem of determining cause-and-effect. Now, a team of physicists...

Scientists detect Higgs bosons decaying into bottom quarks

Two major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have detected the Higgs boson transforming into two bottom quarks as it decays. This is predicted...

When did the lights first come on in the universe?

A galaxy close to the dawn of time gives a clue It is springtime in the Northern hemisphere. Countless buds that have been waiting patiently...

Scientists measure gravity with record precision

Although gravity is as fundamental to our life as breathing, how hard is it to measure it accurately? A group of Chinese researchers recently has...

Scientists detect most common way that Higgs bosons decay

Scientists now know the fate of most Higgs bosons produced in Large Hadron Collider Today at CERN, the Large Hadron Collider collaborations ATLAS and CMS...
Scientists develop method to reveal how light affects materials

Scientists develop method to reveal how light affects materials

Physicists developed a way to determine the electronic properties of thin gold films after they interact with light. Nature Communications published the new method, which...

Scientists make leap in simulating quantum particles

New quantum theory research, led by academics at the University of St Andrews' School of Physics, could transform the way scientists predict how quantum...

Scientists race to demystify Einstein’s ‘spooky’ science

When it comes to fundamental physics, things can get spooky. At least that’s what Albert Einstein said when describing the phenomenon of quantum entanglement—the linkage...

Laser breakthrough has physicists close to cooling down antimatter

For the first time, physicists at CERN have observed a benchmark atomic energy transition in anithydrogen, a major step toward cooling and manipulating the...
