Time's quantum arrow has a preferred direction, new analysis shows
A simple atomic nucleus could reveal properties associated with the mysterious phenomenon known as time reversal and lead to an explanation for one of the greatest mysteries of physics: the imbalance of matter and antimatter in the universe.
A new way of understanding the structure of proteins, polymers, minerals, and engineered materials will be published in the May 2011 issue of the journal Nature Materials.
Light may be a direct result of small violations of relativity. Physicist Alan Kostelecky of Indiana University describes light as "a shimmering of ever-present vectors in empty space" and compares it to waves propagating across a field of grain. This description is markedly different from existing theories of light, in which scientists believe space is without direction and the properties of light are a result of an underlying symmetry of nature.
