Metamaterials research receives £2.5 million boost (4/23/2014)

Research into using metamaterials in optics has already produced the possibility of an invisibility cloak. To take these ideas further into allied areas of advanced materials £2.5 million is being invested by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Researchers will apply concepts to fields such as acoustic metamaterials, thermal cloaking and to engineer designer metamaterials with specific properties. ...> Full Article


A new key to unlocking the mysteries of physics? Quantum turbulence (4/22/2014)

The recent discovery of the Higgs boson has confirmed theories about the origin of mass and, with it, offered the potential to explain other scientific mysteries. But, scientists are continually studying other, less-understood forces that may also shed light on matters not yet uncovered. Among these is quantum turbulence, writes New York University's Katepalli Sreenivasan in a special issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. ...> Full Article


Flipping the switch (4/21/2014)

Harvard researchers have succeeded in creating quantum switches that can be turned on and off using a single photon, an achievement that could pave the way for the creation of highly secure quantum networks. ...> Full Article

Scientists observe quantum superconductor-metal transition and superconducting glass (4/19/2014)

The article 'Collapse of superconductivity in a hybrid tin?grapheme Josephson junction array' (authors: Zheng Han, Adrien Allain, Hadi Arjmandi-Tash,Konstantin Tikhonov, Mikhail Feigelman, Benjamin Sacépé,Vincent Bouchiat, published in Nature Physics on March 30, 2014, presents the results of the first experimental study of the graphene-based quantum phase transition of the 'superconductor-to-metal' type, i.e. transformation of the system's ground state from superconducting to metallic, upon changing the electron concentration in graphene sheet. ...> Full Article


Progress in the fight against quantum dissipation (4/19/2014)

Scientists at Yale have confirmed a 50-year-old, previously untested theoretical prediction in physics and improved the energy storage time of a quantum switch by several orders of magnitude. They report their results in the April 17 issue of the journal Nature. ...> Full Article


Scientists capture ultrafast snapshots of light-driven superconductivity (4/18/2014)

Scientists capture ultrafast snapshots of light-driven superconductivityA new study pins down a major factor behind the appearance of superconductivity -- the ability to conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency -- in a promising copper-oxide material. ...> Full Article


Searching for dark energy with neutrons (4/18/2014)

Searching for dark energy with neutronsIt does not always take a huge accelerator to do particle physics: First results from a low energy, table top alterative takes validity of Newtonian gravity down by five orders of magnitude and narrows the potential properties of the forces and particles that may exist beyond it by more than one hundred thousand times. Gravity resonance spectroscopy, a method developed at the Vienna University of Technology, is so sensitive that it can now be used to search for Dark Matter and Dark Energy. ...> Full Article


Shiny quantum dots brighten future of solar cells (4/17/2014)

Shiny quantum dots brighten future of solar cellsA house window that doubles as a solar panel could be on the horizon, thanks to recent quantum-dot work by Los Alamos National Laboratory researchers in collaboration with scientists from University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy. Their project demonstrates that superior light-emitting properties of quantum dots can be applied in solar energy by helping more efficiently harvest sunlight. ...> Full Article


Quantum manipulation: Filling the gap between quantum and classical world (4/16/2014)

Quantum manipulation: Filling the gap between quantum and classical worldQuantum superposition is the most intriguing property of the microscopic world, which also gives quantum computer enormous computational power. New experimental techniques are needed to isolate the quantum system from its environment, so we can have a 'pure' quantum playground. A review summarizes the recent progress in the manipulation of single ion and photon, and discuss their further applications by reviewing the work of the two 2012 Nobel Prize Laureates. ...> Full Article


Beam on target! (4/15/2014)

Beam on target!Late on April 1, the crown jewel of the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility sparkled its way into a new era. Following an upgrade of the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility, the CEBAF accelerator delivered the highest-energy electron beams it has ever produced into a target in an experimental hall, recording the first data of the 12 GeV era. ...> Full Article


Professors test boundaries of 'new physics' with discovery of 4-quark hadron (4/11/2014)

Professors test boundaries of 'new physics' with discovery of 4-quark hadronPhysicists in Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences have helped confirm the existence of exotic hadrons -- a type of matter that cannot be classified within the traditional quark model. Their finding is the subject of a forthcoming article, prepared by the Large Hadron Collider beauty Collaboration at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Tomasz Skwarnicki, professor of physics, is one of the paper's lead authors. ...> Full Article

Fermi data tantalize with new clues to dark matterA new study of gamma-ray light from the center of our galaxy makes the strongest case to date that some of this emission may arise from dark matter, an unknown substance making up most of the material universe. ...> Full Article


Quantum photon properties revealed in another particle -- the plasmon (4/7/2014)

One approach to make qubits for quantum computing relies on the creation of two single photons that interfere with one another in a device called a waveguide. Results from a recent applied science study at Caltech support the idea that waveguides coupled with another quantum particle -- the surface plasmon -- could also become an important piece of the quantum computing puzzle. ...> Full Article
