Latest Atom Stories
Researchers from Stanford University and the U.S. Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have created the first-ever system of "designer electrons" – exotic variants of ordinary electrons with tunable properties that may ultimately lead to new types of materials and devices.
An international team of physicists at CERN (the European Laboratory for Particle Physics) used microwaves to measure and manipulate an atom made of antimatter for the first time ever.
Individual atoms of a certain chemical element can be very stubborn when it comes to separation, mainly because techniques rely on a difference in chemical and physical properties — atoms are almost identical in both regards.
How long does it take an electron to form a photon?
For scientists working in quantum physics, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle says that measurements of properties such as the momentum of an object and its exact position cannot be simultaneously specified with arbitrary accuracy.
Just as NASA engineers test new rocket designs in computer studies before committing themselves to full prototypes, so physicists will often model matter under various circumstances to see whether something new appears.
A team of Australian and American researchers announced on Sunday that they had created a working transistor from a single phosphorus atom embedded precisely in a silicon crystal.
A user of the Safari web browser is suing Google, accusing the largest online search engine on the planet of violating his privacy rights in Apple's iPhone and iPad line of products.
Google, along with a handful of advertising companies, has been using a piece of clandestine code to get around security settings in Apple’s Safari web browser in order to track iPhone users’ online activities.
