Latest Theoretical physics Stories
Metamaterials Market research report covers the entire spectrum of metamaterials used across various applications such as aerospace and defense, medical instrumentation, optics, sensing, and telecommunication.
Physicist Richard Schnee hopes to find traces of dark matter by studying particles with low masses and interaction rates, some of which have never been probed before
A new study of gamma-ray light from the center of our galaxy makes the strongest case to date that some of this emission may arise from dark matter, an unknown substance making up most of the material universe.
Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated the world’s first three-dimensional acoustic cloaking device. The scientists reported that they have created a new device that reroutes sound waves...
Dark matter research, like all experiments involving particle and astrophysical detections, relies on sorting out the desired events (the source events) from the noise (the background events). Since the interactions occur at a quantum level, the statistical process of sorting through the data is laborious, but also, more importantly, relies on your ability to calibrate and understand the instrument.
With the emergence of metamaterials and transformation optics in the past few years, invisibility has become a scientific possibility that has attracted sustainable research interest.
Pixidis researcher Tom Whitney of Minneapolis has achieved the Holy Grail quest of modern physical science: the discovery of Einstein's famed unified field equation.
The first battery-powered cloaking device is being designed by researchers at the University of Texas. The use of an external source of power will greatly expand its bandwidth of operation.
A group of researchers from Imperial College London have created a means by which certain theoretical models can be visualized using a 3D printer.
Classical and Quantum Gravity is a peer-reviewed journal published by IOP Science. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is Clifford M Will (Washington University, St. Louis). The journal covers all aspects of gravitational physics and the theory of space-time. It scope includes: Classical general relativity, Applications of relativity, Experimental gravitation, Cosmology and the early universe, Quantum gravity, Supergravity, superstrings and supersymmetry, and Mathematical physics relevant...
Physics is the scientific study of matter and its motion through space/time and its derivitives, including energy and force. It is generally the analysis of nature and is conducted to help us understand how the universe behaves. Physics comes from the Greek word physis, meaning "nature". It is among the oldest academic disciplines, and perhaps the oldest pertaining to astronomy. Physics has been considered synonymous with philosophy, chemistry, mathematics, and biology for more than 2000...
String Theory -- A string theory is a physical model whose fundamental building blocks are extended objects (strings, membranes and higher-dimensional objects) rather than points. String theories are able to avoid problems, such as infinite energy density, associated with the presence of mathematical points in a physical theory. The term 'string theory' properly refers to both the 26 dimensional bosonic string theories and to the 10 dimensional superstring theories discovered by...
Spacetime -- In special relativity and general relativity, time and three-dimensional space are treated together as a single four-dimensional manifold called spacetime (alternatively, space-time; see below). A point in spacetime may be referred to as an event. Each event has four coordinates (t, x, y, z). Just as the x, y, z coordinates of a point depend on the axes one is using, so distances and time intervals, invariant in Newtonian physics, may depend on the reference frame of an...
