In the depths of space, there are celestial bodies where extreme conditions prevail: Rapidly rotating neutron stars generate super-strong magnetic fields.
A new type of astronomical telescope has been developed by Durham, Toronto, and Princeton Universities in collaboration with NASA and the Canadian Space Agency.
Great leaps in science and technology have been propelled by recent advances in seeing fast evolving physical phenomena, as they happen.
For the first ever time, researchers have demonstrated the absorption of energy from laser light by free electrons in a liquid. So far, this process was noted only in the gas phase.
Scientists at KAIST have fabricated a laser system that generates highly interactive quantum particles at room temperature.
At The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), a research group has discovered a scientifically mysterious, detached cloud bigger than the Milky Way in a “no-man’s land” for galaxies.
For the first ever time, researchers have detected black holes devouring neutron stars, “like Pac Man”, in a breakthrough recording the collision of the two most extreme and elusive objects in the Universe.
As pervasive as they are in everyday uses, like encryption and security, randomly generated digital numbers are seldom truly random
Research team, led by academician GUO Guangcan from University of Science and Technology of China of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, collaborating with researchers from Sun Yat-sen University and Zhejiang University, realized two-photon quantum interference in the structure of valley-dependent topological insulators based on the valley Hall effect.
The first case of a new kind of supernova was recently observed by an international team of astronomers.
