At the National Astronomical Observatories of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), astronomers have disclosed a wobbly, flared Milky Way disk using LAMOST-Gaia data, which updates one’s knowledge about the disk.
The most powerful telescope in the world is scheduled to be launched into space this year. When that happens, researchers will be able to discover whether Earth-sized planets in the “solar neighborhood” have a vital precondition for life — an atmosphere.
A team led by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has found a rare quantum material in which electrons move in coordinated ways, essentially "dancing."
The earliest solids formed in the solar system give clues to what radioactive species were made by the young sun, and which ones were inherited. By studying isotopic variations of the elements vanadium (V) and strontium (Sr), an international team of researchers including scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found that those variations are not caused by irradiation from the sun but are produced by condensation and evaporation reactions in the early solar system.
Researchers at the University of Bath in the UK have found a way to make 'single-crystal flake' devices that are so thin and free of defects, they have the potential to outperform components used today in quantum computer circuits.
Ding, dong. There is a box in front of the door. And inside there is ... a cute but half-dead cat! The main character of the new game app "Kitty Q" of the Würzburg-Dresden Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat–Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter of the Universities of Würzburg and Dresden accompanies children and teenagers aged 11 and older into the crazy quantum world.
Imagestacking two sheets of graphene – the 2D form of graphite, or the pencil at your hand – in which the carbon atoms form a hexagonal lattice and twist the top sheet out of alignment with the sheet below, yielding a periodic arrangement of atoms named moiré pattern.
The world’s first run of a multi-turn superconducting linear accelerator with substantial energy recovery was a success at Technische Universität Darmstadt.
Researchers at the University of Cambridge have shown that complex many-body systems such as prethermal discrete time crystals (DTCs) do not need to be modeled using quantum mechanics. In fact, a computer simulation using classical Hamiltonian dynamics clearly demonstrated the properties of prethermal DTCs.
Information encryption is one of the core technologies of cyberspace security. The algorithm encryption has a risk of exhaustive attack due to the algorithm determinacy.
