Boosting the force of empty space (7/28/2014)

Boosting the force of empty spaceEmpty space is not really empty. Tiny particles constantly pop in and out of existence. These so-called vacuum fluctutations can exert a measurable force. Researchers have now found a way to drastically enhance these unusual forces between atoms. ...> Full Article


Chinese scientists search for evidence of dark matter particles with new underground PandaX detector (7/27/2014)

Progress in the search for dark matter, whose gravitational effects and distribution will influence whether the universe continues expanding or ends in a Big Crunch, has been elusive. Chinese scientists will take a greater role in this search with the new PandaX liquid-xenon detector, which will monitor potential collisions between xenon nuclei and weakly interacting massive particles, hypothesized candidates for dark matter particles. They present here the technical design of the PandaX Dark Matter Experiment. ...> Full Article


Scientists find way to maintain quantum entanglement in amplified signals (7/26/2014)

Scientists find way to maintain quantum entanglement in amplified signalsPhysicists Sergei Filippov and Mario Ziman have found a way to preserve quantum entanglement of particles passing through an amplifier and, conversely, when transmitting a signal over long distances. ...> Full Article


Unleashing the power of quantum dot triplets (7/25/2014)

Unleashing the power of quantum dot tripletsQuantum computers have yet to materialize. Yet, scientists are making progress in devising suitable means of making such computers faster. One such approach relies on quantum dots -- a kind of artificial atom, easily controlled by applying an electric field. A new study published in European Physical Journal B demonstrates that changing the coupling of three coherently coupled quantum dots with electrical impulses can help better control them. ...> Full Article


It's go time for LUX-Zeplin dark matter experiment (7/24/2014)

From the physics labs at Yale University to the bottom of a played-out gold mine in South Dakota, a new generation of dark matter experiments is ready to commence. The US Department of Energy's Office of Science and the National Science Foundation recently gave the go-ahead to Large Underground Xenon-Zeplin, a key experiment in the hunt for dark matter, the invisible substance that may make up much of the universe. ...> Full Article


Is the universe a bubble? Let's check (7/23/2014)

MicroBooNE particle detector makes its move, with Yale's help (7/21/2014)

If you want to see neutrinos change flavors, you need a hefty detector.Yale University physicists and others at the Fermilab research facility in Illinois recently helped move a massive, 30-ton particle detector into a new building where it will be used to help scientists better understand the enigmatic particles known as neutrinos. ...> Full Article


New paths into the world of quasiparticles (7/20/2014)

New paths into the world of quasiparticlesQuasiparticles can be used to explain physical phenomena in solid bodies even though they are not actual physical particles. Physicists in Innsbruck have now realized quasiparticles in a quantum system and observed quantum mechanical entanglement propagation in a many-body system. The researchers have published their work in Nature. ...> Full Article


Latest quantum field theory on graphene and topological insulators (7/19/2014)

Latest quantum field theory on graphene and topological insulatorsThe discovery of graphene and topological insulators realizes in the laboratory many exotic and non-perturbative phenomena proposed in the realm of high-energy physics and mathematics. The book 'Lecture notes on field theory in condensed matter physics' provides core knowledge to understand this exciting field of physics. ...> Full Article


Ultra-cold atom transport made simple (7/19/2014)

Techniques for controlling ultra-cold atoms traveling in ring traps currently represent an important research area in physics. A new study gives a proof of principle, confirmed by numerical simulations, of the applicability to ultra-cold atoms of a very efficient and robust transport technique called spatial adiabatic passage (SAP). Yu Loiko and colleagues have, for the first time, applied SAP to inject, extract, and filter the velocity of neutral atoms from and into a ring trap. ...> Full Article


The quantum dance of oxygen (7/18/2014)

The quantum dance of oxygenUnder extremely high pressure conditions oxygen molecules group into quartets and give rise to a 'dance of their magnetic moments.' This, as observed in a new study carried out by SISSA in collaboration with ICTP and published in PNAS, results in magnetic properties never previously observed in these conditions and in theory points to the existence of a new phase of the element, called epsilon 1. ...> Full Article
