An intelligent sensor, the size of about 1/1000 of the cross-section of a human hair, has been developed that can detect the polarization, intensity, and wavelength of light simultaneously using quantum properties of electrons.
Silicon nanoparticles can become trapped within the vortices that develop inside superfluid helium, according to researchers from Osaka University’s Graduate School of Engineering Science.
An international research team, including scientists at Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, have used a new observation technique to discover the brightest extragalactic pulsar known, and it could even be the most luminous one ever found.
In physics, as in life, it's always good to look at things from different perspectives.
An international team of astronomers headed by Dr Benjamin Thomas of The University of Texas at Austin has utilized data from the Hobby-Eberly Telescope (HET) at the university’s McDonald Observatory to solve a puzzle regarding a star explosion that was detected some years ago and is still evolving.
For “Star Wars” fans, the streaking stars seen from the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon as it jumps to hyperspace is a canonical image.
Quantum computers process and store information digitally, just like conventional computers. They do not, however, use switchable circuits that are either on or off-;they rather use quantum physical systems that can adopt the two states simultaneously.
Medium-sized black holes are extremely tough to detect, but a new research specifies that some may be located at the center of dense star clusters situated all over the universe.
Researchers discovered that light can trigger a form of magnetism in a normally nonmagnetic material. This magnetism centers on the behavior of electron "spin." By controlling & aligning electron spin at this level of detail & accuracy, this platform could have applications in quantum computing & simulation.
Confidentiality of communication is essential in modern societies. Traditional way of secure communication is to use encryption, which is based on the computational difficulty of certain mathematical problems such as factorizing large integers.
