Long-awaited Synthetic Particle Discovered By Scientists
2014-01-30 12:14:48

Aalto University Researchers at Aalto University and Amherst College have now created and photographed synthetic magnetic monopoles under laboratory conditions. These observations lay the foundation for the underlying structure of the natural magnetic monopole – the detection of which would be a revolutionary event comparable to the discovery of the electron. The results were recently published in Nature magazine. Although predicted over 80 years ago, the fundamentally...

The UPV/EHU physicist Eneko Malatsetxebarria has explored, on a theoretical level, some quantum effects that take place in atoms at a very low temperature. Firstly, he has discovered that boson-type atoms and fermion-type ones can be mixed in a specific way. So he has made the necessary conditions for carrying out these experiments available to experimental physicists. Secondly, he has deduced how fermions would influence bosons in this case. The experiments carried out on cold atoms are...

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For several decades now the leading model for the origin and evolution of the known Universe is a concept known as the Big Bang. Nearly 15 billion years ago, quantum fluctuations of the infinite vacuum of space-time caused the emergence of a rapidly expanding Universe, ultimately filled with matter and radiation. But what initially caused the fluctuation? According to quantum mechanics, it is a natural result of the...

Popular television shows such as “Doctor Who” have brought the idea of time travel into the vernacular of popular culture. But problem of time travel is even more complicated than one might think. LSU’s Mark Wilde has shown that it would theoretically be possible for time travelers to copy quantum data from the past. It all started when David Deutsch, a pioneer of quantum computing and a physicist at Oxford, came up with a simplified model of time travel to deal with the paradoxes...

Wormholes Driving Quantum Entanglement
2013-12-04 15:25:47

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the strangest consequences of quantum theory, is what happens when elementary particles are created in pairs. These individual charges become entangled with their counterparts. The result is that interactions with one of these particles creates direct consequences for the other, even if the other particle is on the other side of the Universe. The simplest example of this is when an electron and positron are created when...

Single-atom Bit Forms Smallest Memory In The World
2013-11-18 12:09:44

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers One atom equals one bit: According to this design principle, we would like to construct magnetic data memories in the future. Presently, a compound of several million atoms is needed to stabilize a magnetic bit in a way that hard disk data are secure for several years. However, researchers from KIT have just made a big step towards a single-atom...

François Englert, a Belgian theoretical physicist, and Distinguished Visiting Professor in Residence and founding member of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University in California, has won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics for his prediction of the Higgs Boson particle, which has helped the world’s physicists solve some of the deepest mysteries of the universe. Orange, CA (PRWEB) October 08, 2013 François Englert, a Belgian theoretical physicist, and Distinguished...

Nobel Prize Higgs Boson Scientists
2013-10-08 11:01:27

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Two scientists behind the theoretical model describing the Higgs boson were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for 2013, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced on Tuesday. Many in the scientific community saw the award as recognition of the actual discovery of the so-called ‘God particle’ last year at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. The prize is more often awarded to those on the theoretical...

Casimir Force Reduced To Lowest Recorded Level
2013-10-02 07:06:13

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis A research team that includes a physics professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) has recorded a drastically reduced measurement of the Casimir effect, a fundamental quantum phenomenon experienced between two neutral bodies that exist in a vacuum. For more than 60 years, scientists have studied the peculiar electromagnetic interaction between two neutral objects. The Casimir effect, a long-standing point of...

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...
