Latest Fundamental interaction Stories
Two USC researchers have proposed a link between string field theory and quantum mechanics that could open the door to using string field theory — or a broader version of it, called M-theory — as the basis of all physics.
With neutrons, scientists can now look for dark energy in the lab
It’s been just over one year since the discovery of the Higgs boson was all but confirmed, but researchers now believe that there might be particles even smaller that have yet to be discovered.
From matching wings on butterflies to the repeating six-point pattern of snowflakes, symmetries echo through nature, even down to the smallest building blocks of matter.
Researchers have made the first experimental determination of the weak charge of the proton in research carried out at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab).
In a new study recently published in the journal Science, a research team from Amherst College and The University of Texas at Austin has described a new technique that might one day reveal the composition and characteristics of the deep Earth in never before seen detail.
A cornerstone of physics may require a rethink if findings at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are confirmed.
A new experiment proposed by physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) may allow researchers to test the effects of gravity with unprecedented precision at very short distancesâ€”a scale at which exotic new details of gravity's behavior may be detectable.
Perimeter Institute Faculty member Jaume Gomis has won an Early Researcher Award from the Ministry of Research and Innovation (MRI) of Ontario. Early Researcher Awards help promising
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the US, have performed sophisticated laser measurements to detect the subtle effects of one of nature's most elusive forces - the "weak interaction".
