Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Quantum Dots Market - Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.
It's not quite Star Trek communications—yet. But long-distance communications in space may be easier now that researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have designed a clever detector array that can extract more information than usual from single particles of light.
Atomtronics is an emerging technology whereby physicists use ensembles of atoms to build analogs to electronic circuit elements.
Physicists at the University of Basel have observed a spontaneous magnetic order of electron and nuclear spins in a quantum wire at temperatures of 0.1 kelvin.
Originally from Paris, France, Ismaila Dabo has family roots in Guinea, a West African nation blessed with abundant sunshine to match the sunny optimism of its people. But despite these powerful sources of energy, there is a lack of electricity to power the country.
Plourde and a team of researchers from University of Wisconsin, Madison, and the University of the Saarland in Germany were recently awarded $2.25 million, $813,000 of which will go to SU, by ARO for their proposed project “Scalable Readout of Superconducting Qubits with Novel Superconducting Amplifiers and Metamaterials.”
Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics researchers feature strongly as contributors to the first edition of the new series of the BBC's Sky at Night programme on BBC4 presented by Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock and Oxford Astrophysics's Chris Lintott.
NASA trained several pairs of eyes on Saturn as the planet put on a dancing light show at its poles. While NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, orbiting around Earth, was able to observe the northern auroras in ultraviolet wavelengths, NASA's Cassini spacecraft, orbiting around Saturn, got complementary close-up views in infrared, visible-light and ultraviolet wavelengths. Cassini could also see northern and southern parts of Saturn that don't face Earth.
An exhibition celebrating University of Liverpool’s 120 years of particle physics has opened at the Victoria Gallery & Museum.
Scientists on the world’s longest-distance neutrino experiment announced today that they have seen their first neutrinos.
Shoot a beam of light or particles at certain special materials and you will liberate electrons -- pairs of them -- a phenomenon known as "electron pair emission, " which can reveal fundamental properties of the solid and reveal information necessary to design novel materials for future applications.
Scientists have solved a major problem with the current standard model of cosmology identified by combining results from the Planck spacecraft and measurements of gravitational lensing in order to deduce the mass of ghostly sub-atomic particles called neutrinos.
A team led by astronomers at The Australian National University has discovered the oldest known star in the Universe, which formed shortly after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago.
As the Big Bang’s name suggests, the universe burst into formation from an immense explosion, creating a vast soup of particles.
Gigantic clouds of primordial soup, made mainly of hydrogen and helium, eventually...
Topological insulators — materials whose surfaces can freely conduct electrons even though their interiors are electrical insulators — have been of great interest to physicists in recent years because of unusual properties that may provide insights into quantum physics. But most analysis of such materials has had to rely on highly simplified models.
