Science Community now has entire system available to help drive applications into BEC and Ultracold Atoms. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 05, 2013 Notoriously difficult, expensive and time consuming to set up, experiments to create Bose-Einstein Condensates (atoms cooled to temperatures very close to Absolute Zero) have become vastly easier yet much smaller in size. When Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman first demonstrated the existence of as Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC), a form of ultracold...

Author is completing Einstein in new book. San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013 Albert Einstein died a disappointed man. He was never able to discern the mathematical formula that would express the Grand Unification Theory (GUT). Now, over a half-century later, author Richard Palmquist believes that the “scheme of everything” can be found by observing the behavior of electricity. In Einstein, Money and Contentment author Richard Palmquist has written a book that unifies...

New Pulsars Discovered In Archival Data

AlphaGalileo Foundation Einstein@Home discovers 24 new pulsars in archival data. The combined computing power of 200,000 private PCs helps astronomers take an inventory of the Milky Way. The Einstein@Home project connects home and office PCs of volunteers from around the world to a global supercomputer. Using this computer cloud, an international team lead by scientists from the Max Planck Institutes for Gravitational Physics and for Radio Astronomy analyzed archival data from the CSIRO...

A first for the Boulder based company: training physicists to create Bose Einstein Condensates in four days. Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) August 02, 2013 Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein in 1924 first predicted and described the quantum behavior of atoms when cooled to temperatures very close to Absolute Zero (-273.15C or -459.67F). Advances In laser cooling techniques (for which Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, Stephen Chu and Bill Phillips won a 1997 Nobel Prize) allowed Eric Cornell and...

Physicists use dysprosium to put bounds on maximum speed of electrons Albert Einstein's assertion that there's an ultimate speed limit – the speed of light – has withstood countless tests over the past 100 years, but that didn't stop University of California, Berkeley, postdoc Michael Hohensee and graduate student Nathan Leefer from checking whether some particles break this law. The team's first attempt to test this fundamental tenet of the special...

Albert Einstein Resupply Craft Set To Dock With Space Station On Saturday

[WATCH VIDEO: ATV4 Launch Highlights] Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online On Saturday, June 15 the ESA´s fourth Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV4), named Albert Einstein, is set to dock autonomously with the International Space Station (ISS). Einstein launched aboard an Ariane-5 rocket on June 5 and is carrying scientific experiments, supplies and fuel for the orbiting station and its crew. ATV4 will complete a series of phasing maneuvers (thruster burns) on...

Last Look At ATV-4 Before It Launches

ESA Engineers look on as the Ariane 5 launcher fairing is lowered over ESA´s Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), the largest and most sophisticated space ferry to supply the International Space Station. The smaller dark cylinder visible inside the white fairing is ATV Albert Einstein, the fourth spacecraft in the series that will be launched from Europe´s Spaceport in French Guiana tomorrow. This was the last time anybody on Earth will see ATV-4 directly and the last photograph...

JQI lab sets a new record for creating heralded photons HERALDING Entanglement, by general consensus of physicists, is the weirdest part of quantum science. To say that two particles, A and B, are entangled means that they are actually two parts of an inseparable quantum thing. An important consequence of this inherent kinship is that measuring a property of A (say, the particle's polarization) is necessarily to know the corresponding property of B, even if you're not there with a...

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...
