Magnetic Charge Crystals Imaged In Artificial Spin Ice Material
2013-08-28 14:04:18

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign A team of scientists, led by University of Illinois physicist Peter Schiffer, has reported direct visualization of magnetic charge crystallization in an artificial spin ice material, a first in the study of a relatively new class of frustrated artificial magnetic materials-by-design known as “Artificial Spin Ice.” These charges are analogs to electrical charges with possible applications in magnetic memories and devices. The research team's...

Higgs Boson Dark Energy

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For the better part of two decades, the greatest fundamental question facing physics and cosmology has been, quite simply, what is dark energy? Detailed observations of galaxies in our Universe reveal the expansion of the Universe is accelerating. Even after accounting for all of the normal matter, radiation, and even the theorized dark matter out there, there still simply isn't enough "stuff" to explain the dynamics of the...

Kids who have head start to Mathematical concepts (like Statistics, Probability, Algebra, Geometry, Time and Distance, Ratios, Proportionality, Real, and Functional Analysis) before grade 5, have an edge over the kids who were exposed to serious mathematical concepts after 8th grade. Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 24, 2013 Even though American education system is very effective in producing leaders, managers, process, and thought leaders, it is behind in producing Einstein-like mathematicians...

Data Erased By Magnetic Monopoles
2013-05-31 12:38:36

Technische Universitaet Muenchen A physical particle postulated 80 years ago, could provide a decisive step toward the realization of novel, highly efficient data storage devices. Scientists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM), the Technische Universitaet Dresden and the University of Cologne found that with magnetic monopoles in magnetic vortices, called skyrmions, information can be written and erased. Iron filings strewn on a sheet of paper trace the field lines of a bar...

University of Innsbruck "When water boils, its molecules are released as vapor. We call this change of the physical state of matter a phase transition," explains Sebastian Diehl from the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Innsbruck. Together with his colleagues from the Institute for Experimental Physics and the theorist Markus Mueller from the Complutense University of Madrid, he studied the transition between two quantum mechanical orders in a way never before...

Pear Shaped Atomic Nuclei
2013-05-09 11:28:49

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a study in the journal Nature, a team of international scientists has found the first ever direct evidence of pear-shaped atomic nuclei. Bizarre pear-shaped nuclei could be the key to understanding one of the great mysteries of the universe: the reason for the Big Bang´s creation of a massive imbalance between matter and antimatter. "If equal amounts of matter and antimatter were created at the Big Bang, everything...

First Direct Evidence Of How Antimatter Interacts With Gravity
2013-04-30 10:11:53

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online All fundamental matter in the Universe — protons, electrons, etc. — has counterparts known as antimatter. In most ways, antimatter simply mirrors regular matter. For instance, the antimatter counterpart to the electron is the positron, a particle of the same mass of the electron, but possessing the opposite charge and opposite spin. When normal matter encounters its antimatter counterpart, the pair will...

An international team of scientists has shed new light on a fundamental area of physics which could have important implications for future electronic devices and the transfer of information at the quantum level. The electrical currents currently used to power electronic devices are generated by a flow of charges. However, emerging quantum technologies such as spin-electronics, make use of both charge and another intrinsic property of electrons — their spin — to transfer and...

Speed Of Light May Not Be Fixed After All
2013-03-26 05:03:34

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online When we talk about the vacuum of space, we imagine a complete lack of matter — a cold void, dark, and absent of all energy. Over the last century, however, physicists have come to realize that the emptiness of space is anything by empty. On the macro scale, the vacuum of empty space may appear to lack matter and energy as we normally think of it. But when we look closely, and begin to examine the quantum...

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...

call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
