Berkeley Lab scientists have developed new machine learning algorithms to accelerate the analysis of data collected decades ago by HERA, the world's most powerful electron-proton collider that ran at the DESY national research center in Germany from 1992 to 2007.
Physicists have created the first Bose-Einstein condensate -; the mysterious "'fifth state" of matter -; made from quasiparticles, entities that do not count as elementary particles but that can still have elementary-particle properties like charge and spin.
Australian researchers have engineered a quantum box for polaritons in a two-dimensional material, achieving large polariton densities and a partially ‘coherent’ quantum state.
Quark–gluon plasma is a very hot and dense state of matter wherein the fundamental components—quarks and gluons—are not limited inside composite particles known as hadrons, as they are in the neutrons and protons that compose the nuclei of atoms.
Using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, astronomers studying the early universe have unearthed an astonishing discovery: a cluster of massive galaxies that are developing around an incredibly red quasar.
Curtin University researchers studying molecular fossils or ‘biomarkers’ from deep beneath the Chicxulub impact crater have found evidence of how microorganisms changed in response to fluctuations in the Earth’s climate, offering clues about how the planet and life forms may respond to climate change in our modern world.
Nuclear physicists have corroborated that the existing explanation of proton structure is not perfect. A recent accuracy determination of the proton’s electric polarizability conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility has exposed a gap in the data in probes of the proton’s structure.
NASA hit a bullseye in late September with DART, the Double Asteroid Redirection Test, which flew a spacecraft straight at the heart of a nearby asteroid.
Meteors may assist astronomers in devising a new approach to detect dark matter—elusive and indistinguishable particles that have thus far only been recognized by the influence they impart on the natural world.
Latest research will enable scientists involved in the next generation of gravitational wave observatories (the successors to the presently operational LIGO) to better exploit the data gathered following the collision of neutron stars.
A quantum thermometer has been designed by an international group of researchers, including specialists from the University of Adelaide, to quantify the ultra-cold temperatures of time and space foretold by Einstein and the laws of quantum mechanics.
A 72ft life-size replica of the first rocket that will launch from UK soil later this year went on display outside the Science Museum in London this weekend (15 and 16th October).
Astronomers worldwide are fascinated by a remarkably bright and continuous pulse of high-energy radiation that drifted across the Earth on October 9th, 2022.
A succession of buzzing, bee-like “loop-currents” could illustrate a newly discovered, unparalleled occurrence in a specific type of quantum material.
Scientists at Cardiff University have detected a strange winding motion in the orbits of two merging black holes, an unusual occurrence foretold by Einstein’s theory of gravity.
