Latest Theoretical physicists Stories
Information field theory enables astronomers, medical practitioners and geologists to look into places where their measuring instruments are blind.
Killian lab creates Bose-Einstein condensate from strontium.
Vitaly Ginzburg, one of the creators of the Soviet hydrogen bomb and later a Nobel Prize-winning Russian physicist, died in Moscow on Sunday at the age of 93.
Promising photonic devices, and theorists attempt to determine whether particle physics and string theory can be reconciled.
Scientists at the Fermilab in northern Illinois are stumped as to why Google Maps has placed them 15 miles from their actual location west of Chicago. The Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Lab has always been in Batavia, Ill., so it came a surprise when the popular Internet mapping sight located the facility out on Route 47. The Department of Energy doesn't own land out there, lab spokesman Kurt Riesselmann told the Kane County (Ill.) Chronicle.
Renowned cosmologist Stephen Hawking will retire from his prominent Cambridge University position at the end of the academic year in September, but plans to continue his study of space and time, the university said Friday.
By The Associated Press Two Japanese scientists and an American have won the 2008 Nobel Prize in physics for theoretical advances that help explain the behavior of the smallest particles of matter.The American, Yoichiro Nambu, 87, of the University of Chicago, won half the $1.4 million prize for work he did nearly a half-century ago.Makoto Kobayashi and Toshihide Maskawa, of Japan, shared the other half for a 1972 theory that forecast the later discovery of a new family of subatomic...
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.
By Dan Vergano Insights into the peculiarities of the smallest subatomic particles and the existence of the universe have netted one American and two Japanese theorists the 2008 Nobel Prize in physics.
Annalen der Physik (Annals of Physics) is a peer-reviewed physics journal established in 1799, and is one of the oldest journals still in publication today. The journal is the successor of the Journal der Physik first published in 1790. The journal has been published under a variety of names throughout its history. The journal was published only in German until the 1950s, when it began publishing both in German and English. In 1990, after the German reunification, English became the only...
Carl Friedrich Freiherr von WeizsÃ¤cker (June 28, 1912 "“ 28 April 2007) was German physicist and philosopher. He was the longest-living member of Werner Heisenberg's research team which investigated nuclear studies in Germany during World War II. Some argue whether he and the team willingly engaged in the development of a nuclear bomb for Germany, or if its failure was intentional because they did not want the Nazi regime to have nuclear weapons. WeizÃ¤cker was born in Kiel,...
Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 - November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist. He made essential contributions to understanding atom structure and quantum mechanics. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Christian Bohr and Ellen Adler, Bohr got his doctorate at Copenhagen University in 1911. He then studied under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. Based on Rutherford's theories, Bohr published his Bohr model about atom structure in 1913, introducing the theory of electrons...
