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


Searching high and low for dark matter (4/9/2014)

How is the hunt for dark matter going? Researchers from around the world recently gathered at UCLA to take stock of their progress. ...> Full Article


Fermi data tantalize with new clues to dark matter (4/8/2014)

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


Researchers provide new insights into quantum dynamics and quantum chaos (4/6/2014)

A team of researchers led by University of Notre Dame physicist Boldizsar Janko has announced analytical prediction and numerical verification of novel quantum rotor states in nanostructured superconductors. ...> Full Article


Should physicists work to the sound of silence? (4/5/2014)

In this month's issue of Physics World, Felicity Mellor, a senior lecturer in science communication at Imperial College London, questions whether the requirement of the modern physicist to collaborate and communicate is preventing the intellectual progress brought about by silence and solitude. ...> Full Article


A breakthrough in creating invisibility cloaks, stealth technology (4/4/2014)

A breakthrough in creating invisibility cloaks, stealth technologyScientists have managed to create artificial nanostructures that can 'bend light,' called metamaterials. But the challenge has been making enough of the material to turn invisibility cloaks into a practical reality. The work of Debashis Chanda at the University of Central Florida, however, may have just cracked that barrier. ...> Full Article


New Zealand physicists split and collide ultracold atom clouds (4/4/2014)

Physicists at New Zealand's University of Otago have pushed the frontiers of quantum technology by developing a steerable 'optical tweezers' unit that uses intense laser beams to precisely split minute clouds of ultracold atoms and to smash them together. ...> Full Article


Record quantum entanglement of multiple dimensions (4/3/2014)

An international team directed by researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences, with participation from the Universitat AutÚnoma de Barcelona, has managed to create an entanglement of 103 dimensions with only two photons. The record had been established at 11 dimensions. ...> Full Article


Controlling electron spins by light (4/2/2014)

Controlling electron spins by lightTopological insulators are considered a very promising material class for the development of future electronic devices. A research team at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin has discovered, how light can be used to alter the physical properties of the electrons in these materials. Their results have just been published by the renowned journal Physical Review X. ...> Full Article

Dark energy hides behind phantom fields (3/31/2014)

Dark energy hides behind phantom fieldsQuintessence and phantom fields, two hypotheses formulated using data from satellites, such as Planck and WMAP, are among the many theories that try to explain the nature of dark energy. Now researchers from Barcelona and Athens suggest that both possibilities are only a mirage in the observations and it is the quantum vacuum which could be behind this energy that moves our universe. ...> Full Article
