A novel genuine time-dependent topological system

Scientists recently realized a novel genuine time-dependent topological system with ultracold atoms in periodically-driven optical honeycomb lattices.

First observation of rare events producing three massive force carriers

Now, there is much information available on how Universe works. However, there are still some significant mysteries that remain unsolved, such as...

The long-Standing mystery of matter and antimatter solved

Scientists at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) have discovered an element that could hold the key to the long-standing...

Focusing surface plasmon waves into nanojet

Scientists worldwide are working on computer technology based on optical radiation. It is expected that the optical computer would be even faster...

Astronomers created the fifth state of matter in space

With the launch and operation of the Cold Atom Lab (CAL), NASA has established the sustained study and development of quantum technologies...

Astrophysicists accurately confirmed cornerstone of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity

Einstein's theory of gravity—the general theory of relativity—is based on the universality of free fall, which specifies that all objects accelerate identically...

Scientists invent symmetry-breaking for the first time in a nanoscale device that can mimic human brain

Over the last decade, artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications such as machine learning have gained pace to revolutionise many industries. As...

A miniature double particle accelerator to recycle some of the laser energy

Using a longer pulse comprising many cycles of terahertz waves, DESY scientists have devised a tiny double particle accelerator that can recycle...

Dancing electrons solve a longstanding puzzle in the oldest magnetic material

Magnetite is the oldest magnetic material known to humans, yet researchers are still mystified by certain aspects of its properties.

New method to observe electrocatalytic water splitting under operating conditions

Electrocatalysts often show increased conversion at nanoscale chemical or topographic surface inhomogeneities, resulting in spatially heterogeneous reactivity. Identifying reacting species locally with...
