Scientists Use Diamond to Get Better Measure of Spinning Electrons

Diamonds are one of the most coveted gemstones. But while some may want the perfect diamond for its sparkle, physicists covet the right diamonds to perfect their experiments. The gem is a key component in a novel system that enables precision measurements that could lead to the discovery of new physics in the sub-atomic realm — the domain of the particles and forces that build the nucleus of the atom.

Brunel Scientists Engineer Innovative New Method to Build Next-Generation Ultra-Cold Freezers

Scientists at Brunel University London have engineered an innovative new method to build the next generation of freezers capable of reaching temperatures as low as - 180°C by using advanced cryogenically cooled heat pipe technology. [More]
UAH Student Discovers Second-Strongest Merger Shock in Galaxy Clusters

UAH Student Discovers Second-Strongest Merger Shock in Galaxy Clusters

The discovery by a physics doctoral student at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) of the second-strongest merger shock in clusters of galaxies ever observed has generated excitement that is opening doors to further scientific exploration. [More]
Astrophysicists Spot Distant Star with Powerful Magnetic Field

Astrophysicists Spot Distant Star with Powerful Magnetic Field

A star like the Sun has an internal driving in the form of a magnetic field that can be seen on the surface as sunspots. Now astrophysicists from the Niels Bohr Institute have observed a distant star in the constellation Andromeda with a different positioning of sunspots and this indicates a magnetic field that is driven by completely different internal dynamics.

PPPL Researchers Challenge Understanding of Key Element in Fusion Plasmas

PPPL Researchers Challenge Understanding of Key Element in Fusion Plasmas

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have challenged understanding of a key element in fusion plasmas. At issue has been an accurate prediction of the size of the “bootstrap current” — a self-generating electric current — and an understanding of what carries the current at the edge of plasmas in doughnut-shaped facilities called tokamaks.

MPQ Scientists Demonstrate How Quantum Logic Gate Operation Can be Realized with Single Photons

MPQ scientists take an important step towards a logical quantum gate for photons. [More]
Quantum Physical Effect of Entanglement Can be Detected with the Naked Eye

Quantum Physical Effect of Entanglement Can be Detected with the Naked Eye

Predictions from quantum physics have been confirmed by countless experiments, but no one has yet detected the quantum physical effect of entanglement directly with the naked eye. This should now be possible thanks to an experiment proposed by a team around a theoretical physicist at the University of Basel. The experiment might pave the way for new applications in quantum physics. [More]

Astronomers Detect Three Earth-Like Exoplanets Orbiting Ultracool Dwarf Star

Astronomers Detect Three Earth-Like Exoplanets Orbiting Ultracool Dwarf Star

A group of astronomers at MIT, the University of Liège in Belgium, and elsewhere have discovered three Earth-like exoplanets orbiting around an ultracool dwarf star for the first time. They are located just 40 light years from our planet. Their sizes and temperatures are similar to those of Earth and Venus, making them the best targets ever found in search of life beyond our solar system. [More]
