Physics research removes outcome unpredictability of ultracold atomic reactions (9/1/2014)

Physics research removes outcome unpredictability of ultracold atomic reactionsA physics model helps scientists accurately predict the likely outcome of a chemical reaction and sheds new light on mysterious quantum states, including the Efimov effect. ...> Full Article


Cool molecules (8/31/2014)

Cool moleculesYale physicists have chilled the world's coolest molecules. The tiny titans in question are bits of strontium monofluoride, dropped to 2.5 thousandths of a degree above absolute zero through a laser cooling and isolating process called magneto-optical trapping. They are the coldest molecules ever achieved through direct cooling, and they represent a physics milestone likely to prompt new research in areas ranging from quantum chemistry to tests of the most basic theories in particle physics. ...> Full Article


Team finds first direct evidence of 'spin symmetry' in atoms (8/30/2014)

Team finds first direct evidence of 'spin symmetry' in atomsJoint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics physicists led by theorist Ana Maria Rey and experimentalist Jun Ye have observed the first direct evidence of symmetry in the magnetic properties -- or nuclear 'spins' -- of atoms. The advance could spin off practical benefits such as the ability to simulate and better understand exotic materials such as superconductors. ...> Full Article


Scientists observe quantum vortices in cold helium droplets (8/29/2014)

An international research team including DESY scientists has observed tiny quantum vortices in cold droplets of liquid helium. It is the first time that the quantum vortices, which have been observed in larger samples of superfluid helium before, have been detected in nanodroplets, as the team reports in the journal Science. 'The experiment has exceeded our best expectations,' says Andrey Vilesov of the University of Southern California, one of the experiment's three leads. ...> Full Article


Rice physicist emerges as leader in quantum materials research (8/28/2014)

'Emergent' is a key concept in the work of Rice University theoretical physicist Andriy Nevidomskyy, and thanks to two prestigious new awards, it is also an apt description of his work. ...> Full Article


Testing the shelf-life of nuclear reactors (8/26/2014)

Researchers at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho Falls and TerraPower based in Bellevue, Washington, have demonstrated the power of high-energy beams of charged particles. The ions can rapidly and consistently damage samples of ferritic-martensitic steel, the material used in certain nuclear reactor components. ...> Full Article

First indirect evidence of so-far undetected strange baryons (8/22/2014)

First indirect evidence of so-far undetected strange baryonsNew supercomputing calculations provide the first evidence that particles predicted by the theory of quark-gluon interactions but never before observed are being produced in heavy-ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. ...> Full Article


'Cavity protection effect' helps to conserve quantum information (8/21/2014)

'Cavity protection effect' helps to conserve quantum informationTwo different quantum systems are being coupled at the Vienna University of Technology to create a powerful hybrid quantum system. Using a strong coupling effect, the coherence time could now be considerably prolonged. ...> Full Article


Molecular engineers record an electron's quantum behavior (8/20/2014)

Molecular engineers record an electron's quantum behaviorA team of researchers led by the University of Chicago has developed a technique to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron contained within a nanoscale defect in diamond. Their technique uses ultrafast pulses of laser light both to control the defect's entire quantum state and observe how that single electron state changes over time. The work appears in this week's online Science Express. ...> Full Article


Laser makes microscopes way cooler (8/20/2014)

Laser makes microscopes way coolerLaser physicists have found a way to make atomic-force microscope probes 20 times more sensitive and capable of detecting forces as small as the weight of an individual virus. The technique, developed by researchers at the Australian National University, hinges on using laser beams to cool a nanowire probe to -265 degrees Celsius. ...> Full Article
