Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay have found a way to use pristine graphene for encoding, processing, and storing quantum information, opening doors to much simpler, small-sized quantum computers that can operate at room temperature.
An international team of astronomers has solved a 900-year-old question regarding the origin of a famous supernova first spotted in China around 1181AD.
The building blocks of all visible matter in the universe are gluons and quarks. They are explained by the theory of strong nuclear interactions—quantum chromodynamics (QCD).
The novel design for a next-generation diamond sensor with capabilities that range from producing magnetic resonance imaging of single molecules to detecting slight anomalies in the Earth's magnetic field to guide aircraft that lack access to global positioning systems will be developed by a collaboration of scientists led by the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.
Researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and Freie Universität Berlin have developed a new, simple approach for generating terahertz radiation. Strong optical laser pulses enable terahertz electromagnetic fields to be generated directly at a specific point.
Scientists have generated circularly polarized light and controlled its direction without using clunky magnets or very low temperatures.
Supermassive black holes weighing million to billion times more than the Sun can be found in all galaxies. During the collision of galaxies, pairs of supermassive black holes found at their centers also end up on the collision course.
DTU and Graphene Flagship researchers have taken the art of patterning nanomaterials to the next level.
A group of researchers have used a groundbreaking new technique to reveal previously unrecognized properties of technologically crucial silicon crystals and uncovered new information about an important subatomic particle and a long-theorized fifth force of nature.
The National Science Foundation has announced it will fund a new endeavor to bring atomic-level precision to the devices and technologies that underpin much of modern life, and will transform fields like information technology in the decades to come.
A University of Texas at San Antonio researcher is part of a collaboration that has set a world record for innovation in quantum computing.
At the University of Sussex, physicists have found, in a scientific first, that black holes exert pressure on their environment.
An international team of researchers used a neutron beam to conduct pendellösung interferometry on silicon, offering both measurements of maximum accuracy with this method to date and a snapshot of the characteristics of both the silicon crystals and the neuron itself.
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.
