How to make the world’s most powerful neutrino beam

Scientists on Nov. 14 broke ground on an innovative experiment that aims to answer some of the biggest questions about the universe. The Long-Baseline Neutrino...

Scientists make new breakthrough in quantum computing

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University have developed a new method for producing atomically-thin semiconducting crystals that could one day enable more powerful and compact...

Beyond Moore’s Law: Taking transistors into the third dimension

Silicon integrated circuits, which are used in computer processors, are approaching the maximum feasible density of transistors on a single chip--at least, in two-dimensional...

The Universe isn’t flat – it’s curved

The current cosmological scenario, based on inflation, dark matter, and a cosmological constant, seems unable to fit all observations.” --Dr Eleonora Di Valentino A new...

Scientists create more effective light-trapping devices

Anyone who’s ever played the drums, tuned a guitar, or even made a wine glass “sing” by circling a finger along its edge knows...

Interstellar buckyballs may come from dying stars, says study

New research may explain how “buckyballs”—complex carbon molecules with a soccer-ball-like structure—form in space. Carbon 60, or C60 for short, (the official name is Buckminsterfullerene)...

Protons are smaller than we thought (and that’s a big deal)

Protons, the little positively-charged nuggets inside an atoms, are fractions of a quadrillionth of a meter smaller than anyone thought, according to new research. In...

Scientists reveal new state of matter

For years, physicists have assumed that Cooper pairs, the electron duos that enable superconductors to conduct electricity without resistance, were two-trick ponies. The pairs either...

Ancient gas cloud reveals universe’s first stars formed quickly

The discovery of a 13 billion-year-old cosmic cloud of gas enabled a team of Carnegie astronomers to perform the earliest-ever measurement of how the...

A new quantum leap: Physicists one step closer to building quantum transducer

New study sheds light on the development of a device for converting quantum information to new frequencies. New research by University of Alberta physicists is...
