Letter by Albert Einstein, validated by The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where Einstein bequeathed his notes, letters and records. Dyer et al. 2021, J Comp Physiol A / The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Fair use) Since the dawn of the electronic age, it has never been easier for researchers to engage […]

Superconducting circuits find applications in sensing and information processing. Credit: Lancaster University Lancaster scientists have demonstrated that other physicists’ recent “discovery” of the field effect in superconductors is nothing but hot electrons after all. A team of scientists in the Lancaster Physics Department have found new and compelling evidence that […]

A train of short proton bunches travels through the plasma field, forming a wave on which electrons can be accelerated. Credit: AWAKE Important milestone for next-generation acceleration experiment. The future of particle acceleration has begun. Awake is a promising concept for a completely new method with which particles can be […]

The centerpiece of the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab is a 50-foot-diameter superconducting magnetic storage ring, which sits in its detector hall amidst electronics racks, the muon beamline and other equipment.

ANIMATION Particle physicists use lattice quantum chromodynamics and supercomputers to search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Peer deeper into the heart of the atom than any microscope allows and scientists hypothesize that you will find a rich world of particles popping in and out of the vacuum, decaying into other particles, […]

Researchers from Louisiana State University have introduced a smart quantum technology for the spatial mode correction of single photons. In a paper featured on the cover of the March 2021 issue of Advanced Quantum Technologies, the authors exploit the self-learning and self-evolving features of artificial neural networks to correct the distorted […]

ANIMATION Physicists on the hunt for a rarely seen magnetic spin texture have discovered another object that bears its hallmarks, hidden in the structure of ultra-thin magnetic films, that they have called an incommensurate spin crystal. University of Warwick physicists set out to find Skyrmions, only to find near-identical object with […]
