Researchers at MIT and elsewhere have combined the power of a super collider with techniques of laser spectroscopy to precisely measure a short-lived radioactive molecule, radium monofluoride, for the first time.
Correlation discovered between magnetic turbulence in fusion plasmas and troublesome blobs at the plasma edge.
MIT researchers have discovered a phenomenon that could be harnessed to control the movement of tiny particles floating in suspension. This approach, which requires simply applying an external electric field, may ultimately lead to new ways of performing certain industrial or medical processes that require separation of tiny suspended materials.
Five years after NASA's MAVEN spacecraft entered into orbit around Mars, data from the mission has led to the creation of a map of electric current systems in the Martian atmosphere.
To simulate in a laboratory what happens in particle accelerators has been an ambitious goal in the study of the fundamental forces of nature pursued by high-energy physicists for many years. Now, thanks to research conducted by the groups of statistical physics of SISSA - Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati and the "Abdus Salam" International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), that goal is closer to reach.
Researchers from the National University of Singapore have created a new collection of atomically thin two-dimensional materials. Using novel synthesis conditions for transition metal dichalcogenides, more than 10 new materials have been made by the team, with many more still to be discovered.
Scientists at Osaka University initiated a quantum random walk by shining lasers on a row of trapped ions. They showed that the observed locations of vibrations spreading out over time matched the predictions of quantum mechanics. This work may help elucidate unresolved questions in quantum chemistry and biology.
A team of researchers at UCLA has set a new record for preparing and measuring the quantum bits, or qubits, inside of a quantum computer without error. The techniques they have developed make it easier to build quantum computers that outperform classical computers for important tasks, including the design of new materials and pharmaceuticals.
In a study published in Nature Communications, ICFO, HDU and UPV researchers report the production of a giant entangled state that may help medical researchers detect extremely faint magnetic signals from the brain.
A team of researchers co-led by Berkeley Lab has observed unusually long-lived wavelike electrons called 'plasmons' in a new class of electronically conducting material. Plasmons are very important for determining the optical and electronic properties of metals for the development of new sensors and communication devices.
