  1. A Laser From A Space Ant

    An international team of astronomers have discovered an unusual laser emission that suggests the presence of a double star system hidden at the heart of the “spectacular” Ant Nebula.

  2. Quarks Feel The Pressure In The Proton

    Inside every proton in every atom in the universe is a pressure cooker environment that surpasses the atom-crushing heart of a neutron star. That’s according to the first measurement of a mechanical property of subatomic particles, the pressure distribution inside the proton, which was carried out by scientists at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.

  3. Main Regularities Of Thermal Expansion And Thermal Stability Of Layered Ferroelectrics Established

    The scientists of the Lobachevsky University and the Institute of Low Temperatures and Structural Research in Wroclaw (Poland) conducted unique studies of oscillation properties using modern methods of optical spectroscopy.

  4. Explanation For Puzzling Quantum Oscillations Has Been Found

    Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a quantum simulator. Their experiments in this system, presented in July 2017 at a conference in Trieste, revealed completely unexpected periodic oscillations in the dynamics of the interacting atoms.

  5. Free-Form: Quality Leap In Optical Systems

    Optical free-form systems enable new applications with an extremely compact design. Due to the complex technology involved, the production of appropriate solutions was previously impossible or too expensive.

  6. Tektronix, IEMN Demo 100 Gb/s Wireless Transmissions Using IEEE 802.15.3d Standard

    Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, and IEMN, a major French research laboratory, demonstrated a single carrier wireless link traveling at a 100 Gb/s data rate.

  7. 3D Images Of Cancer Cells In The Body: Medical Physicists From Halle Present New Method

    Making tumour cells glow: Medical physicists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have developed a new method that can generate detailed three-dimensional images of the body's interior.

  8. Researchers Find New Way To Stimulate Cellular Recycling Process

    Brown University researchers studying the biology of aging have demonstrated a new strategy for stimulating autophagy, the process by which cells rebuild themselves by recycling their own worn-out parts.

  9. Entangled Atoms Shine In Unison

    A team led by experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission.

  10. The Photoexcited Graphene Puzzle Solved

    A boost for graphene-based light detectorsLight detection and control lies at the heart of many modern device applications, such as the camera you have in your phone. Using graphene as a light-sensitive material for light detectors can offer significant improvements with respect to materials being used nowadays.
