Cooling strontium could lead to increasingly precise clocks, quantum computers and ultracold chemistry Two independent teams have, for the first time, created Bose-Einstein condensates of strontium atoms. The ability to cool strontium to very low temperatures and control its motion could lead to increasingly precise clocks and may advance our progress toward quantum computers and novel experiments in ultracold chemistry. The new Bose-Einstein condensate is reported in two papers in Physical...

Investigating mysterious data in ultracold gases of rubidium atoms, scientists at the Joint Quantum Institute of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland and their collaborators have found that properly tuned radio-frequency waves can influence how much the atoms attract or repel one another, opening up new ways to control their interactions. As the authors report* in an upcoming issue of Physical Review A, the radio-frequency (RF) radiation...

Researchers at Northwestern University in Illinois say the pen and paper letters written by geniuses like Albert Einstein are very similar to today's e-mails. The Evanston, Ill., university said in a news release Friday a new study of human behavior at the college found that letters from 16 famed performers, politicians, scientists and writers were written in cycles similar to modern e-mails. By studying letter-writing patterns of the historical geniuses, which also included Charles Darwin...

Letter writers of yore had same correspondence patterns as e-mail users today You're not as different from Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin after all, at least when it comes to patterns of correspondence. A new Northwestern University study of human behavior has determined that those who wrote letters using pen and paper -- long before electronic mail existed -- did so in a pattern similar to the way people use e-mail today. The study, published Sept. 25 by the journal Science, demonstrates...

Scientists using a continent-wide array of radio telescopes have made an extremely precise measurement of the curvature of space caused by the Sun's gravity, and their technique promises a major contribution to a frontier area of basic physics."Measuring the curvature of space caused by gravity is one of the most sensitive ways to learn how Einstein's theory of General Relativity relates to quantum physics. Uniting gravity theory with quantum theory is a major goal of 21st-Century physics,...

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- "Science shows that the conditions necessary for life are extraordinarily improbable. Life has four major prerequisites: a viable universe, the right atoms, a habitable environment and an effective genetic code. "Albert Einstein once said: 'What really interests me is whether God had any choices in the creation of the universe' -- meaning does the universe have to be the way it is due to the laws of physics and math, or could it have been...

Microscopic objects floating in fluids move great distances at times, not just in a bell curve, disputing an Einstein theory, a U.S. university study suggests. The University of Illinois findings, to be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences next week, raise fundamental questions concerning the statistical nature of the diffusion process, critical to drug delivery, water purification and the normal operation of living cells, engineering professor Steve Granick said....

 In his discussion of accelerated motion on page 60 of The Meaning of Relativity, Albert Einstein made an approximation that allowed him to develop the theory of relativity further. Einstein apparently never had the opportunity to check his original approximation. Now, a University of Missouri physicist has uncovered some clues about the basis of Einstein's theories and presented a more general approximation, which may better link quantum physics with classical physics."Einstein's...

Annalen der Physik (Annals of Physics)
2012-05-29 11:22:42

Annalen der Physik (Annals of Physics) is a peer-reviewed physics journal established in 1799, and is one of the oldest journals still in publication today. The journal is the successor of the Journal der Physik first published in 1790. The journal has been published under a variety of names throughout its history.  The journal was published only in German until the 1950s, when it began publishing both in German and English. In 1990, after the German reunification, English became the only...

Einsteinium is a metallic synthetic element with the symbol Es and atomic number 99. It became the seventh transuranic (atomic number higher than 99) element produced. It was named for Albert Einstein. It is an element found within the actinoid series which includes Actinium. Though it has only been produced in small amounts, it has been accurately determined to be silver in coloration. Like all synthetic elements, einsteinium isotopes are highly radioactive and are extremely toxic. Besides...

Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 - November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist. He made essential contributions to understanding atom structure and quantum mechanics. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Christian Bohr and Ellen Adler, Bohr got his doctorate at Copenhagen University in 1911. He then studied under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. Based on Rutherford's theories, Bohr published his Bohr model about atom structure in 1913, introducing the theory of electrons...

General Relativity -- General Relativity is the common name for the theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915. According to general relativity the force of gravity is a manifestation of the local geometry of spacetime. Although the modern theory is due to Einstein, its origins go back to the axioms of Euclidean geometry and the many attempts over the centuries to prove Euclid's fifth postulate, that parallel lines remain always equidistant, culminating with the...
