Scientists recreated the deep-Earth conditions in the lab

New observations of the atomic structure of iron reveal it undergoes "twinning" under extreme stress.

Scientists captured a ‘quantum tug’ between neighboring water molecules

The work sheds light on the web of hydrogen bonds that gives water its strange properties.

Optimizing particle accelerator performance

Teaching machine learning the basics of accelerator physics is particularly useful in situations where actual data don’t exist.

A new window into dark energy

An analysis by Dark Energy Survey physicists yields more precise estimates of the average density of matter as well as its propensity to clump together - two key parameters that help physicists probe the nature of dark matter and dark energy.

New evidence for quantum fluctuations near a quantum critical point in a superconductor

Pinning down where this particular quantum critical point might be.

Scientists take a direct look at how light excites electrons

When a molecule interacts with light, its electrons can absorb energy from the electromagnetic field by rapidly rearranging their positions. This subtle rearrangement makes ready...
