Photons -- fundamental particles of light -- are carrying these words to your eyes via the light from your computer screen or phone.
Quantum nanophotonics is an active research field with emerging applications that range from quantum computing to imaging and telecommunications.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo observed a strange signal relating to the way electrons are organized. This was observed while analyzing the behavior of iron-based superconducting materials.
Diffusion of waves is a natural result in propagation, like sound, water, and light, while the localization of waves is an unconventional phenomenon in periodic media.
In science fiction, "teleportation" is commonly portrayed as a means to transfer physical objects from one location to another one some distance away.
Scanning tunneling microscopes are capable of capturing images of materials with atomic precision and can be applied to control individual atoms or molecules.
Scientists use particle accelerators to speed up electrically charged particles to nearly the speed of light. They then smash those particles together to study the new particles that form, including quarks.
Under the guidance of Alex Cameron and Deanne Fisher from the ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3 Dimensions (ASTRO 3D), a group of astronomers has employed a new imaging system at the WM Keck Observatory in Hawaii to verify whether what flows into a galaxy is far cleaner compared to what flows out.
How common is our Solar System? Less common than we might think.
Prof. Jong-Soo Lee and his research team from the Department of Energy Science & Engineering, DGIST, developed a green-emitting Cd-Free quantum dot synthesis technology with high color reproduction rate.
