They do this by manipulating captured photons and combine them with a kind of quasi-particle called an exciton to make something half-light/half-matter that some scientists affectionately refer to as 'magic dust'. This alone is "interesting and exciting from a physics perspective," says quantum physicist Nick ...
physicists have observed some weird atomic collision problems as particles failed to bounce off each other in the way science predicts they should. But with ... "What we observed was totally amazing," says one of the team, physicist Alexander Bazilevsky from Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York.
Last year, two teams of physicists managed to actually create real time crystals in their labs. This physics breakthrough was remarkable, but wouldn't have been possible without the theoretical work of Chetan Nayak, a physics professor at UC Santa Barbara and a researcher at Microsoft's quantum lab, ...
"No, we don't get a break because we're poor, starving scientists," says physicist Murdock Gilchriese of the 250-member experiment led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Only a handful of companies produce xenon gas globally, by extracting it from the air at so-called air separation plants. Xenon ...
DEEP in a disused zinc mine in Japan, 50,000 tonnes of purified water held in a vast cylindrical stainless-steel tank are quietly killing theories long cherished by physicists. Since 1996, the photomultiplier-tube detectors (pictured above) at Super-Kamiokande, an experiment under way a kilometre beneath ...

Advanced timekeeping could help unify quantum and gravitational physics, predict earthquakes, and navigate in deep space. SHARE; TWEET. Matthew Gault. Jan 10 2018, 11:30am. Rei Watanabe.

The sole physicist ever to win the Fields Medal, Mathematics' premier prize, Witten is also known for discovering M-theory, the leading candidate for a unified physical "theory of everything." A genius's ... physicists are talking more than ever lately about dualities, but you've been studying them for decades.
All of it should be discussed, according to the theoretical high energy physicist from USC. That goes for everyone, even ... How did a physicist come to write and draw a graphic novel? I didn't feel any urgency to do ... A lot of physicists write books to explain their theories. What was your agenda with this ...

It's well established that nuclear fusion - the reaction that powers our Sun - could be the key to unlocking clean, limitless energy here on Earth. But one of the biggest challenges of modern science is how to harness the fusion reaction so that it produces more energy than it consumes. And a new paper ...
theoretical physicist Qimao Si and his colleagues at Rice Univerity's Rice Center for Quantum Materials, as well as the Vienna University of technology in Austria, have revealed a new quantum material that holds similar properties to that of disparate materials like heavy fermion metal and topological ...
I was a physicist for 30 years. My brain still works that way. In a post-factual world, scientists are at a distinct disadvantage. That may explain why very few physicists hold positions of authority. A few years ago, I had a ... My approach to the world has been shaped as a physicist. I believe in an objective ...
The smallest pieces of the universe are governed by a beautiful and mind-blowing set of rules: the "Standard Model." The Standard Model explains the behavior of all 17 discovered particles, and it continues to make predictions that have been proven accurate by the largest physics experiments in the world ...
While we all take for granted the fact that time's arrow forever points towards the future, physicists have always had trouble showing why this is necessarily the case. A mix of chloroform and acetone might seem like an odd place to hunt for clues, but researchers have used just such a combination to create ...

While many people around the world are opening presents and gathering with family as part of honoring of the birth of baby Jesus, some science enthusiasts are also celebrating another kind of luminary: Sir Isaac Newton. The physicist and mathematician was born on December 25, 1642, using the older ...
physicists have done the seemingly impossible: found a way to track mysterious quantum particles even when those particles aren't being directly observed. In classical physics, an object occupies only one state of being at a time; something could be either alive or dead, for example, but not both ...
One of the underlying principles of quantum theory is that quantum objects can exist as waves or particles. But, they do not exist as either until they are measured, making it seemingly unachievable to identify or track quantum objects when they're not being observed. But recently, physicists faced this issue ...
The theory was first put forth by US and Dutch physicists Juan Martin Maldacena and Gerard 't Hooft. Some scientists have consequently come to believe that the entire universe is subject to the same principle - i.e. that it is possible that we are living inside a flat, two-dimensional holographic space.
'Quantum tunnelling' also - finally - explains how Santa gets into homes without a chimney, according to Dr George Knee, a theoretical physicist at the University of Warwick. Dr Knee said, 'For Santa to achieve his annual mission, it need not be that he operates outside of the laws of physics - just that he ...
(Phys.org)--physicists have built one of the first basic elements of a trapped Rydberg ion quantum computer: a single-qubit Rydberg gate. The achievement illustrates the feasibility of building this new type of quantum computer, which has the potential to overcome the scalability problems facing current ...
... shared the majority viewpoint among quantum scientists; yet Einstein persisted in thinking that every event must have its cause, and searched constantly for a deeper explanation which might bring order into the seemingly chaotic sub- atomic world," German theoretical physicist Werner Heisenberg wrote ...
New research led by a University of Illinois physicist has proved the existence of a new form of matter -- 'excitonium,' a solid crystal of excitons. ... "Until now, physicists have not had the experimental tools to positively distinguish whether what looked like excitonium wasn't in fact a Peierls phase," they ...
physicists at the University of Illinois said that they have now proven that excitonium really exists, describing the discovery as being of "cosmic significance." In a paper published on Dec. 8, researchers reveal how they were finally able to prove the existence of this new type of matter and begin to answer ...

Their theory ...
For the keen physicist, this work might appear to break the second law of thermodynamics. However, the scientists explain, this law does not take into account correlation. It assumes particles are uncorrelated. Researchers say their findings show the arrow of time "is not an absolute but a relative concept" ...
If you're already a Star wars fan, you know that the stories take place in a galaxy far, far away, so the laws of physics should still apply. On the other hand, these are obviously works of fiction; is there any point in applying those laws? My book makes the case that is is both fun and worthwhile to do so for a ...
