Latest Atomic physics Stories
Physicists at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI), a collaboration of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland-College Park, have for the first time caused a gas of atoms to exhibit an important quantum phenomenon known as spin-orbit coupling.
The fabric of space-time around spinning black holes should impart a â€œtwistâ€ in the property of light called orbital angular momentum.
A new source of ions will soon be the starting point for the beams entering two major research facilities at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory - the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC - http://www.bnl.gov/rhic), where physicists are recreating conditions of the early universe to learn more about the forces that hold matter together, and the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory (NSRL: http://www.bnl.gov/medical/NASA/NSRL_description.asp), where scientists study...
An international team of scientists has used ultrashort flashes of laser light to directly observe the movement of an atomâ€™s outer electrons for the first time.
An international team measures the charge radius of the hydrogen nucleus and stumbles across some mysteries of physics.
When light is absorbed by atoms, the electrons become excited.
Despite a steady improvement in the speed of conventional computers during the last few decades, certain types of problems remain computationally difficult to solve.
Scientists demonstrate for the first time exotic multiparticle interactions between ultracold atoms in an artificial crystal of light.
In an achievement that could help enable fast quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have built a better Rydberg atom trap.
CHICAGO, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Consider this nightmare: Each night millions of women toss and turn and try to get to sleep but can't because of hormonal hot flashes, night sweats and chills.
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...
