An international team of researchers has created a whole new virtual universe and made it freely accessible on the cloud. Uchuu, which means outer space in Japanese, is the largest and most realistic simulation of the universe found today.
Quantum chemists believe gold, silver and copper could help the world take a leap towards green energy after discovering that compounds based on these metal elements and hydrogen are very promising candidates for hydrogen storage.
The quantum materials that Alexey Chernikov and his team study are as thin as just a few atoms. The main focus is the study of elusive quasiparticles.
Astronomers are analyzing the gases and metals that constitute an important region of the Milky Way galaxy to learn more about its history and evolution.
Skoltech alumnus Dr. Mikhail Dobynde and his colleagues from the U.S. and Germany have identified a window of opportunity for a manned spaceflight to Mars and back in the mid-2030s.
A grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) has been awarded to Assistant Professor of Physics Eve Armstrong, PhD, to resolve one of the greatest mysteries of science, that is, to find how the universe evolved from stardust.
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has contradicted the prevalent view of white dwarfs as inert, slow cooling stars. An international group of astronomers has revealed the first evidence that white dwarfs are capable of slowing down their rate of aging by burning hydrogen on their surface.
In a new metallic specimen developed by a research group from Boston College, the motion of electrons tends to flow in the same way water flows in a pipe. Basically, this varies from particle-like to fluid-like dynamics.
As newly reported by the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, researchers from the Graduate School of Science at Osaka City University have developed a quantum algorithm that can understand the electronic states of atomic or molecular systems by directly calculating the energy difference in their relevant states.
New experiments using trapped one-dimensional gases—atoms cooled to the coldest temperatures in the universe and confined so that they can only move in a line—fit with the predictions of the recently developed theory of “generalized hydrodynamics.”
