In a discovery that could provide new insights into the origin of mass in the universe following the Big Bang, scientists have used experiments...

Novel device may rapidly control plasma disruptions in a fusion facility

Scientists seeking to capture and control on Earth fusion energy, the process that powers the sun and stars, face the risk of disruptions --...

New way to control fluid flow and organize particles with ultraviolet light

A new, simple, and inexpensive method that uses ultraviolet light to control particle motion and assembly within liquids could improve drug delivery, chemical sensors,...

Physicists measure ‘weak force’ inside atoms for first time

Researchers have reported the first measurements of the weak interaction between protons and neutrons inside an atom. The detection of the elusive force verifies a...

Scientists discover new mechanism for information storage in one atom

Scientists at Radboud University discovered a new mechanism for magnetic storage of information in the smallest unit of matter: a single atom. While the proof...

Scientists show quantum materials can be tuned for superconductivity

Some iron-based superconductors could benefit from a tuneup, according to two studies by Rice University physicists and collaborators. "Our work demonstrates a new design principle...

Secrets of our universe live in a big blue cylinder
