Latest Atom Stories
Electron microscopy, conducted as part of the Shared Research Equipment (ShaRE) User Program at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has led to a new theory to explain intriguing properties in a material with potential applications in capacitors and actuators.
Researchers from the University of Arizona (UA) claim that they have found a way to observe the triatomic hydrogen ion believed to be the key element responsible for the formation of the first stars following the Big Bang.
Quantum physicists have made a leap forward in subatomic particle communication by connecting two separate labs 21-meters apart using two atoms and a photon, according to a report published in the April 12 issue of Nature.
Physicists at JILA have demonstrated a novel “superradiant” laser design, which has the potential to be 100 to 1,000 times more stable than the best conventional visible lasers.
Scientists at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge have used light to help push electrons through a classically impenetrable barrier.
A team of physicists in Barcelona, Spain have for the first time fabricated and tested the world’s most sensitive Nanomechanical sensor, capable of detecting changes in mass of 1.7 yoctograms -- roughly the mass of a single proton.
The early days of our solar system might look quite different than previously thought, according to research at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory published in Science.
Physicists at the University of California, San Diego have discovered patterns which underlie the properties of a new state of matter.
Scientists working at the Institut Laue-Langevin, one of the world's leading centres for neutron science, have carried out the first investigation of two-dimensional fermion liquids using neutron scattering, and discovered a new type of very short wave-length density wave.
Quantum theory describes the world of atoms very precisely.
