Graphene Butterfly Effect Observed For The First Time
2013-05-16 05:23:41

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers have for the first time directly observed a rare quantum effect that produces a repeating butterfly-shaped energy spectrum, confirming the longstanding prediction of the quantum fractal energy structure known as Hofstadter's butterfly. First predicted by American physicist Douglas Hofstadter in 1976, the Hofstadter butterfly emerges when electrons are confined to a two-dimensional sheet, and subjected to both a...

Scientists at the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) have taken part in a research project that describes, for the first time, that laws that govern the development of certain complex natural patterns, such as those found on the surface of cauliflower. The scientists have found a formula that describes how the patterns found in a multitude of natural structures are formed. “We have found a model that describes, in detail, the evolution in time and in space of cauliflower-type...

University of Oregon physicist Richard Taylor is leading effort to design fractal devices to put in eyes University of Oregon researcher Richard Taylor is on a quest to grow flowers that will help people who've lost their sight, such as those suffering from macular degeneration, to see again. These flowers are not roses, tulips or columbines. They will be nanoflowers seeded from nano-sized particles of metals that grow, or self assemble, in a natural process -- diffusion limited aggregation....

The famous fractal mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot died of cancer on October 14 at the age of 85. Mandelbrot developed fractals as a mathematical way of understanding the infinite complexity of nature. The concept has been used to measure coastlines, clouds and other natural phenomena and had far-reaching effects in physics, biology and astronomy. His family said that he died in a hospice in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The visionary mathematician had joint French and U.S. nationality and...

A century after Albert Einstein said we would never be able to observe the instantaneous velocity of tiny particles as they randomly shake and shimmy, so called Brownian motion, physicist Mark Raizen and his group have done so. "This is the first observation of the instantaneous velocity of a Brownian particle," says Raizen, the Sid W. Richardson Foundation Regents Chair and professor of physics at The University of Texas at Austin. "It's a prediction of Einstein's that has been standing...

Lausanne, Switzerland-- An international group of researchers from the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique F©d©rale de Lausanne), the University of Texas at Austin and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany have demonstrated that Brownian motion of a single particle behaves differently than Einstein postulated one century ago. Their results, to be published online October 11 in Physical Review Letters, provide direct physical evidence that validates a corrected form...
