Leads research on new materials that could make it safer to store nuclear waste (10/23/2014)

Minerals that endure in nature for millions of years are inspiring a Clemson University-led research team to explore whether new materials could be developed to encase nuclear waste for safe storage. The three-year project recently won an $800,000 research grant from the US Department of Energy's Nuclear Energy University Programs. ...> Full Article


Tailored flexible illusion coatings hide objects from detection (10/22/2014)

Developing the cloak of invisibility would be wonderful, but sometimes simply making an object appear to be something else will do the trick, according to Penn State electrical engineers. ...> Full Article


Rare 'baby rattle' molecules reveal new quantum properties of H2O and H2 (10/21/2014)

Neutron scattering experiments at the ILL have revealed the existence of quantum selection rules in molecules, the first experimental confirmation of its kind. Small molecules such as water and hydrogen were inserted into C-60 buckyballs to form rare compounds ideal for testing the predictions of quantum theory. Similar confinement techniques could open the door to new insights about the quantum properties of molecules by providing a unique testing ground for quantum theory. ...> Full Article


Old textbook knowledge reconfirmed: Decay rates of radioactive substances are constant (10/20/2014)

Old textbook knowledge reconfirmed: Decay rates of radioactive substances are constantRecently, US scientists attracted attention when they postulated that the decay rate of radionuclides depends on the flow of solar neutrinos and, thus, also on the distance from the Earth to the Sun. Their assumption was based, among other things, on older measurement data of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt. PTB researchers have now definitively refuted the assumption of the Americans. ...> Full Article


Dark matter half what we thought, say scientists (10/19/2014)

Dark matter half what we thought, say scientistsA new measurement of dark matter in the Milky Way has revealed there is half as much of the mysterious substance as previously thought. ...> Full Article


Fusion reactor concept could be cheaper than coal (10/18/2014)

Fusion reactor concept could be cheaper than coalUniversity of Washington engineers have designed a concept for a fusion reactor that, when scaled up to the size of a large electrical power plant, would rival costs for a new coal-fired plant with similar electrical output. ...> Full Article


A quick look at electron-boson coupling (10/17/2014)

A quick look at electron-boson couplingUsing an ultrafast spectroscopy technique called time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, Berkeley Lab researchers demonstrated a link between electron-boson coupling and high-temperature superconductivity in a high-Tc cuprate. ...> Full Article


Fundamentals of physics confirmed (10/16/2014)

The special theory of relativity of Albert Einstein and quantum electrodynamics, which was formulated by, among others, Richard Feynman, are two important fundaments of modern physics. In cooperation with colleagues from several international universities and institutes, the research group of Professor Wilfried Nörtershäuser re-examined these theories in experiments at the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research. ...> Full Article


Pressing the accelerator on quantum robotics (10/15/2014)

Pressing the accelerator on quantum roboticsQuantum computing will allow for the creation of powerful computers, but also much smarter and more creative robots than conventional ones. This was the conclusion arrived at by researchers from Spain and Austria, who have confirmed that quantum tools help robots learn and respond much faster to the stimuli around them. ...> Full Article


New imaging technique could detect acoustically 'invisible' cracks (10/14/2014)

Hide and seek: Sterile neutrinos remain elusive (10/13/2014)

Hide and seek: Sterile neutrinos remain elusiveThe Daya Bay Collaboration, an international group of scientists studying the subtle transformations of subatomic particles called neutrinos, is publishing its first results on the search for a so-called sterile neutrino, a possible new type of neutrino beyond the three known neutrino 'flavors,' or types. The existence of this elusive particle, if proven, would have a profound impact on our understanding of the universe, and could impact the design of future neutrino experiments. ...> Full Article


Scientists observe elusive particle that is its own antiparticle (10/12/2014)

A closer look at the perfect fluid (10/10/2014)

A closer look at the perfect fluidBy combining data from two high-energy accelerators, nuclear scientists have refined the measurement of a remarkable property of exotic matter known as quark-gluon plasma. The findings reveal new aspects of the ultra-hot, 'perfect fluid' that give clues to the state of the young universe just microseconds after the big bang. ...> Full Article


Novel approach to magnetic measurements atom-by-atom (10/9/2014)

Having the possibility to measure magnetic properties of materials at atomic precision is one of the important goals of today's experimental physics. Such measurement technique would give engineers and physicists an ultimate handle over magnetic properties of nano-structures for future applications. In an article published in Physical Review Letters researchers propose a new method, utilizing properties of the quantum world -- the phase of the electron beam -- to detect magnetism with atom-by-atom precision. ...> Full Article
