World’s fastest man-made spinning object could help study quantum mechanics

Researchers have created the fastest man-made rotor in the world, which they believe will help them study quantum mechanics. At more than 60 billion revolutions...

Nanoscale pillars could radically improve conversion of heat to electricity

University of Colorado Boulder scientists have found a creative way to radically improve thermoelectric materials, a finding that could one day lead to the...

First battery-powered invisibility cloak

Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have proposed the first design of a cloaking device that uses an external source of energy...

Accidental discovery dramatically improves conductivity

Quite by accident, Washington State University researchers have achieved a 400-fold increase in the electrical conductivity of a crystal simply by exposing it to...

Market bubbles may be predictable, controllable

It's an idea financial regulators have dreamed of. Experiments on a simple model of chaos have found that it may be possible not only...

Cracked metal, heal thyself

It was a result so unexpected that MIT researchers initially thought it must be a mistake: Under certain conditions, putting a cracked piece of...

Researchers propose a new system for quantum simulation

Researchers from the universities in Mainz, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Ulm have proposed a new platform for quantum simulation. In a theoretical paper recently published in...

Existence of new element, 115, confirmed

An international team of researchers, led by physicists from Lund University, have confirmed the existence of what is considered a new element with atomic...

New theory points to ‘zombie vortices’ as key step in star...

A new theory by fluid dynamics experts at the University of California, Berkeley, shows how “zombie vortices” help lead to the birth of a...

On the trail of dark energy: Physicists propose Higgs boson ‘portal’

One of the biggest mysteries in contemporary particle physics and cosmology is why dark energy, which is observed to dominate energy density of the...
