University of Innsbruck Below a critical temperature, certain fluids become superfluid and lose internal friction. In addition, fluids in this state conduct heat extremely efficiently, with energy transport occurring in a distinct temperature wave. Because of the similarities to a sound wave, this temperature wave is also called second sound. To explain the nature of superfluids, the famous physicist Lev Landau developed the theory of two-fluid hydrodynamics in Moscow in 1941. He assumed...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For the first time since Nobel Prize winner Lev Landau conceived the theoretical existence of quantum levels that determine electron behavior in strong magnetic fields, scientists have directly imaged the phenomenon. The research team, which included scientists from the University of Warwick and Tohoku University, used scanning tunneling spectroscopy — a spatially resolved probe that interacts directly with the electrons...
