Groundbreaking device could enhance optical data processing, computers

At St. Paul's Cathedral in London, a section of the dome called the Whispering Gallery makes a whisper audible from the other side of...

New way to sustain high-performance fusion plasmas

A multinational team led by Chinese researchers in collaboration with U.S. and European partners has successfully demonstrated a novel technique for suppressing instabilities that...

Quantum entanglement only dependent upon area

Two researchers at UCL Computer Science and the University of Gdansk present a new method for determining the amount of entanglement – a quantum...

Explanation for strange magnetic behavior at semiconductor interfaces

They're not exactly the peanut butter and jelly of semiconductors, but when you put them together, something magical happens. Alone, neither lanthanum aluminate nor strontium...

What if quantum physics worked on a macroscopic level?

Quantum physics concerns a world of infinitely small things. But for years, researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, have been attempting to...

Physicists isolate bound states in graphene-superconductor junctions

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Illinois researchers have documented the first observations of some unusual physics when two prominent electric materials are connected: superconductors and graphene. Led by University of Illinois physics professor Nadya Mason...

Unique duality: Princeton-led team discovers ‘exotic’ superconductor with metallic surface

A new material with a split personality -- part superconductor, part metal -- has been observed by a Princeton University-led research team. The discovery may have implications for the development of next-generation electronics that could transform ...

Study describes a tabletop source of bright, coherent X-rays

Producing tightly focused beams of high energy X-rays, to examine everything from molecular structures to the integrity of aircraft wings, could become simpler and cheaper according to new research. Today, in Nature Physics, researchers from Imp...

‘Spintronics’ breakthrough holds promise for next-generation computers

Using powerful lasers, Hui Zhao, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Kansas, and graduate student Lalani Werake have...
