At the CERN Council Open Symposium on the European Strategy for Particle Physics in Krakow, around 500 particle physicists have been discussing the long-term prospect of the field.
The University of Waterloo has reported that the Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre (QNC) will be officially opened on September 21, 2012, in the new building at the center of the university campus.
A research group based at Tampere University of Technology (TUT) has been awarded €1.6 million grant by the Academy of Finland under its ‘Programmable Materials’ funding scheme.
A two-year study conducted by a team of astronomers from the University of Portsmouth and LMU University Munich indicate the probability of existence of dark energy in the universe to be 99.9996%.
Nuclear Fusion holds great potential as a sustainable and limitless source of energy. However, lack of knowledge of the operating limits of materials used to build reactors has significantly hampered commercialization of nuclear fusion energy.
A previous study carried out in 2010 at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) located in Japan demonstrated the transition of iron telluride compounds to superconducting state when they were boiled in alcoholic beverages.
A team of international researchers headed by physicists from the University of Toronto has devised a simple method that utilizes Scotch poster tape to induce high-temperature superconductivity for the first time in a semiconductor.
Aarhus University has announced the inauguration of its second particle accelerator ASTRID2, which will serve as one of the ultimate x-ray sources of the world.
According to Werner Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, one of the fundamentals of quantum mechanics, taking measurements of anything is not possible without causing disturbance to it.
A multi-institute research team, which also includes scientists from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), has successfully teleported quantum data between the Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife, covering a record distance of 143 km over free space.
This summer, particle physicist at the University of Chicago (UChicago) and researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva reported the discovery of a new particle having a mass between 125-126 GeV, a value lies between the estimated range for the sought-after particle dubbed the Higgs boson.
A study on atomic scale magnetism being conducted at EPFL’s Laboratory for Quantum Magnetism (LQM) may provide researchers a tool to explore new high-temperature superconducting materials that hold potential in lossless electricity transmission.
A research team comprising Robert Nemiroff and colleagues from the Michigan Technological University has demonstrated that the spacetime may not be as foamy as believed by some researchers.
In the latest quest to understand the nature and the origins of the Universe, researchers have suggested that the start of the Universe may be more like freezing of water into ice rather than according to the Big Bang theory.
Scientists have revealed how smaller molecules can be imprisoned within a carbon molecule. This allows the study of wave-like behavior which is considered to be a fundamental property of matter.
