Quantum logic is quite a new and absolutely fascinating field of physics and might - ultimately - lead to the fabrication of a quantum computer. And it could also aid the search for the "theory of everything" - the missing link between traditional physics and quantum physics. One of the fundamental questions hereby is whether fundamental constants possibly vary. To prove this in the case of the fine-structure constant, for instance, we have to measure the spectral lines of atoms (i.e. their...

A team led by UA professor and inventor M. Bonner Denton received a 2011 R&D 100 Award for a breakthrough in detection technology that could advance monitoring for nuclear activity, environmental damage, forensic testing and more. What do identifying explosives in a piece of luggage, determining the origin of a bullet and unlocking the age of rocks have in common? They all employ a technology called mass spectrometry, used to detect minute traces of a substance and determining its...

Preventing the formation of amyloid fibrils A molecule which can stop the formation of long protein strands, known as amyloid fibrils, that cause joint pain in kidney dialysis patients has been identified by researchers at the University of Leeds. The discovery could lead to new methods to identify drugs to prevent, treat or halt the progression of other conditions in which amyloid fibrils play a part, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Type II diabetes. The research, funded by...
