New York University scientists and their colleagues have launched the Higgs Hunters project, which will allow members of the general public to study images recorded at the Large Hadron Collider and to help search for previously unobserved particles. [More]
MPG/ESO Telescope Captures Colourful View of Bright NGC 3532 Star Cluster

MPG/ESO Telescope Captures Colourful View of Bright NGC 3532 Star Cluster

NGC 3532 is a bright open cluster located some 1300 light-years away in the constellation of Carina(The Keel of the ship Argo). It is informally known as the Wishing Well Cluster, as it resembles scattered silver coins which have been dropped into a well. [More]
Supermassive Black Holes Enable Precise Measurement of Very Large Distances

Supermassive Black Holes Enable Precise Measurement of Very Large Distances

One of the major problems in astronomy is measuring very large distances in the universe. The current most common methods measure relative distances, but now research from the Niels Bohr Institute demonstrates that precise distances can be measured using supermassive black holes. The results are published in the scientific journal, Nature. [More]
New Method to Determine van der Waals Force for Single Molecules

New Method to Determine van der Waals Force for Single Molecules

Although the van der Waals force was discovered around 150 years ago, it is still difficult to quantify when predicting the behaviour of solids, liquids, and molecules. Precise measurements were only possible up to now for single atoms or macroscopic objects. [More]
Mysterious Communication at a Distance between Superfluid Helium Reservoirs More Common Than Previously Thought

Mysterious Communication at a Distance between Superfluid Helium Reservoirs More Common Than Previously Thought

For several years, it has been known that superfluid helium housed in reservoirs located next to each other acts collectively, even when the channels connecting the reservoirs are too narrow and too long to allow for substantial flow. A new theoretical model reveals that the phenomenon of mysterious communication "at a distance" between fluid reservoirs is much more common than previously thought. [More]
Atomic Memory with Outstanding Parameters for Quantum Information Technologies

Atomic Memory with Outstanding Parameters for Quantum Information Technologies

Neither quantum computers nor quantum cryptography will become prevalent technologies without memory systems able to manipulate quantum information easily and effectively. The Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw has recently made inroads into popularizing quantum information technologies by creating an atomic memory with outstanding parameters and an extremely simple construction.

Laser Pulse Characteristics that Yield Predictable, Controllable Electron Behavior Identified

Laser Pulse Characteristics that Yield Predictable, Controllable Electron Behavior Identified

By solving a six-dimensional equation that had previously stymied researchers, University of Nebraska-Lincoln physicists have pinpointed the characteristics of a laser pulse that yields electron behavior they can predict and essentially control. [More]
Van Allen Radiation Belts Contain Nearly Impenetrable Barrier for Ultra-Fast Electrons

Van Allen Radiation Belts Contain Nearly Impenetrable Barrier for Ultra-Fast Electrons

Two donuts of seething radiation that surround Earth, called the Van Allen radiation belts, have been found to contain a nearly impenetrable barrier that prevents the fastest, most energetic electrons from reaching Earth. [More]
