A new way to probe exotic matter aids the study of atomic and particle physics. Physicists have created a new way to observe details about the structure and composition of materials that improves upon previous methods. Conventional spectroscopy changes the frequency of light shining on a sample over time to […]

Researchers at the University of Tokyo have found a way to enhance the sensitivity of existing quantitative phase imaging so that all structures inside living cells can be seen simultaneously, from tiny particles to large structures. This artistic representation of the technique shows pulses of sculpted light (green, top) traveling […]

(Upper) The arrow points to the most distant galaxy in the universe. (Lower) Carbon emission lines observed in infrared. When it left the galaxy, the signal was ultraviolet light in the region of 0.2 micrometers, but it was redshifted and stretched to over 10 times that to about 2.28 micrometers. […]

Scientists at The University of Tokyo use computer simulations to model the effects of elemental composition on the glass-forming ability of metallic mixtures, which may lead to tough, electroconductive glasses.
