Latest Absolute zero Stories
Below a critical temperature, certain fluids become superfluid and lose internal friction. In addition, fluids in this state conduct heat extremely efficiently, with energy transport occurring in a distinct temperature wave.
A new study by physicists at the Ludwig Maximilians University and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics describes the creation of a new atomic gas in the laboratory that has negative Kelvin values.
Two new studies, both published in Nature this week, outline incredible breakthroughs in the field of quantum mechanics.
Physicists have trapped and cooled exotic particles called excitons so effectively that they condensed and cohered to form a giant matter wave.
For the first time, researchers have been able to combine different climate models using spatial statistics - to project future seasonal temperature changes in regions across North America.
Physicists at Harvard University have realized a new way to cool synthetic materials by employing a quantum algorithm to remove excess energy.
Diamond, nature's hardest known substance, is essential for our modern mechanical world – drills, cutters, and grinding wheels exploit the durability of diamonds to power a variety of industries.
Tel Aviv University uses quantum mechanics to melt glass at Absolute Zero.
Physicists from the University of Bonn have developed a completely new source of light, a so-called Bose-Einstein condensate consisting of photons.
Ever since audiences heard Goldfinger utter the famous line, â€œNo, Mr. Bond; I expect you to die,â€ as a laser beam inched its way toward James Bond and threatened to cut him in half, lasers have been thought of as white-hot beams of intensely focused energy capable of burning through anything in their path.
- In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
- In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
