Researchers have figured out how to nullify collision effects and make the clock still more precise To accurately measure tiny intervals of time, you need a clock that ticks very fast and very precisely. For the ultimate in accuracy, scientists reach for atoms, or more precisely, an exactly known frequency of light emitted by a chosen atom. The 'ticks' are the crests of a light wave, which rises and falls as many as a thousand trillion times per second. In an effort to improve the already...

University of Nevada, Reno team findings to be published in Physical Review Letters article In a forthcoming Physical Review Letters article, a group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno are reporting a refined analysis of experiments on violation of mirror symmetry in atoms that sets new constraints on a hypothesized particle, the extra Z-boson. Andrei Derevianko, an associate professor in the College of Science's Department of Physics, who has conducted groundbreaking research to...

The Large Hadron Collider is an enormous particle accelerator whose 17-mile tunnel straddles the borders of France and Switzerland. A group of physicists at the University of Nevada, Reno has analyzed data from the accelerator that could ultimately prove or disprove the possibility of a fifth force of nature. As the largest science instrument ever built, the LHC has the science community buzzing with excitement as it may help in understanding the inner workings of Nature. Remarkably, some of...

A clock that is so precise that it loses only a second every 300 million years "“ this is the result of new research in ultra cold atoms. The international collaboration is comprised of researchers from the University of Colorado, USA and the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen and the results have just been published in the prestigious scientific journal, Science. An atomic clock consists of gas atoms captured in a magnetic field where they are held stationary with...

Ohio State University researchers have developed a new strategy to overcome one of the major obstacles to a grand challenge in physics.What they've discovered could eventually aid high-temperature superconductivity, as well as the development of new high-tech materials.In 2008, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) chose three multi-university teams to tackle an ambitious problem: trap atoms inside a light crystal -- also called an "optical lattice" -- that can simulate exotic...

Scientists say they have discovered the mechanism that causes tiny objects to levitate, a discovery that may pave the way for the ability to create nanotechnology machines in the future. The apparent levitation was observed as a result of repulsive force between a thin sheet of silica and a small gold-plated bead, Harvard physicist Federico Capasso and colleagues reported in the journal Nature.This so-called Casimir force of repulsion could be replicated and used to create friction-free parts...

Take a gold sample the size of the head of a push pin, shoot a laser through it, and suddenly more than 100 billion particles of anti-matter appear. The anti-matter, also known as positrons, shoots out of the target in a cone-shaped plasma "jet." This new ability to create a large number of positrons in a small laboratory opens the door to several fresh avenues of anti-matter research, including an understanding of the physics underlying various astrophysical phenomena such as black holes and...

By Dennis Overbye A U.S. and two Japanese physicists won the Nobel Prize in Physics on Tuesday for their work exploring the hidden symmetries between elementary particles that are the deepest constituents of nature. Yoichiro Nambu, of the University of Chicago's Enrico Fermi Institute, will receive half of the 10 million kroner prize, or about $1.4 million, awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Makoto Kobayashi, of the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization in...

Communications in Mathematical Physics
2012-06-04 14:23:51

Communications in Mathematical Physics is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by Springer. The founding editor-in-chief was Rudolf Haag, who established the journal in 1965 with the help of Res Jost. Haag headed the journal for the next eight years, and was succeeded by Klaus Hepp, followed by James Glimm, Arthur Jaffe and the Michael Aizenman, who took over in 2000. The journal publishes papers in all fields of mathematical physics, but focuses particularly in analysis related to...
