Researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory simulated the birth of the universe using Livermore's 5-petaflop Vulcan high performance computer. The research appears in the Aug. 18 edition of Physical Review Letters. Livermore, California (PRWEB) August 25, 2014 Using a calculation originally proposed seven years ago to be performed on a petaflop computer, Lawrence Livermore researchers computed conditions that simulate the birth of the universe. When the universe was...

Andrew Gordon, DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory SLAC Experiment Reveals Mysterious Order in Liquid Helium An experiment at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory revealed a well-organized 3-D grid of quantum "tornadoes" inside microscopic droplets of supercooled liquid helium – the first time this formation has been seen at such a tiny scale. The findings by an international research team provide new insight on the strange nanoscale traits of a...

University of California - Santa Barbara A UCSB postdoctoral scholar in physics discovers a counterintuitive phenomenon: the coexistence of superconductivity with dissipation For his doctoral dissertation in the Goldman Superconductivity Research Group at the University of Minnesota, Yu Chen, now a postdoctoral researcher at UC Santa Barbara, developed a novel way to fabricate superconducting nanocircuitry. However, the extremely small zinc nanowires he designed did some unexpected —...

Universal Ripple May Hold Secret To High-temperature Superconductivity
2013-12-20 15:08:38

University of British Columbia UBC researchers have discovered a universal electronic state that controls the behavior of high-temperature superconducting copper-oxide ceramics. The work, published this week in the journal Science, reveals the universal existence of so-called 'charge-density-waves' -- static ripples formed by the self-organization of electrons in the material's normal state. These ripples carry the seeds out of which superconductivity emerges. "Our understanding of...

Advances in technology for computation and information storage always require to make the systems smaller and faster. The limits of miniaturization are those set by nature: Materials are composed by specific units, the atoms, that cannot be further divided. The question arising is: Can we still codify information at the atomic scale? And the answer is yes, we can! but one needs to manipulate a property of the atoms, individually, and keep them in that state there for sufficiently long time to...

Brookhaven National Laboratory Findings identify signature that will help scientists investigate and understand materials that carry current with no resistance Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have identified a series of clues that particular arrangements of electrical charges known as "stripes" may play a role in superconductivity—the ability of some materials to carry electric current with no energy loss. But uncovering the detailed...

Resistivity Switch Plays Role Of Magnetism In Iron-based Superconductors
2013-06-06 13:31:12

Ames Laboratory Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy´s Ames Laboratory have discovered surprising changes in electrical resistivity in iron-based superconductors. The findings, reported in Nature Communications, offer further evidence that magnetism and superconductivity are closely related in this class of novel superconductors. “We found that the directions of smallest and largest resistivity within the conducting layers are significantly dependent on the composition...

Nuclear Science Advisory Committee Recommends Shutting Down RHIC

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online For the last four years Congress and the White House have been unable to pass a federal budget, settling each time for continuing resolutions. However, such stopgaps keep funding levels flat, or even, accounting for inflation, in decline. In 2007, a plan was laid out to maintain US leadership in the field of nuclear physics, with the continued support of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a significant upgrade...

Has The LHC Created A New Form Of Matter?
2012-11-28 13:02:35

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In September 2012, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) conducted a short run of collisions between protons and lead nuclei. The roughly two million events recorded were set to serve as a baseline for lead-lead collisions anticipated for next year. However, these events produced an unexpected result. Ridge Correlations Very high-energy particle collisions produce thousands of new particles which stream away from the...

Strange Matter -- Strange matter (also known as quark matter) is an ultra-dense phase of matter that is theorized to form inside particularly massive neutron stars (which are then known as "strange stars" or "quark stars"). It's theorized that when neutronium is put under sufficient pressure due to the gravitation of a large neutron star, the individual neutrons break down and their constituent quarks form strange matter. Strange matter is composed of strange quarks bound to each...
