The Greeks of old described the development of man - starting with a painful decline from the Golden Age down through the ages of Silver and Bronze to the age of Iron, where we slave away without the enlightenment of legends.
The road uniting quantum field theory and general relativity -- the two great theories of modern physics -- has been impassable for 80 years.
A fully functional quantum computer is one of the holy grails of physics. Physicists have moved one step closer to making a quantum computer a reality by demonstrating a new level of reliability in a five-qubit array.
What if spacetime were a kind of fluid? This is the question tackled by theoretical physicists working on quantum gravity by creating models attempting to reconcile gravity and quantum mechanics.
WASHINGTON D.C., April 23, 2014 -- For much of the 20th century, many of the technological innovations that drove U.S. economic growth emerged from "idea factories" housed within large companies -- research units like Bell Labs or Xerox PARC that developed everything from the transistor to the computer mouse.
A Nepali physicist, Dr Yadav Pandit, is involved in a trailblazing research to find how the subatomic particles that filled the early universe transformed into the ordinary matter of today's world.
Einstein is regarded as a scientific genius, presented to school-age children as the preeminent scholar of everything scientific.
I am a Dutchman, currently living in India. Following a PhD in theoretical physics I entered a Global Fortune Our universe is eternal, expanding indefinitely, and not threatened by any form of 'heath death'.
By combining the powers of two single-atom-thick carbon structures, researchers have created a new ultracapacitor that is both high performance and low cost.

Classical cryptography provides security based on unproven mathematical assumptions and depends on the technology available to an eavesdropper.
A bullet fired through a block of wood will slow down. In a similar way, ions are decelerated when they pass through a solid material: the thicker the material, the larger the energy loss will be.
On April 17th, Roy Glauber, who was awarded one half of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contribution to the quantum theory of optical coherence", visited USTC and gave a lecture "Two Hundred Years of Light Waves, One Hundred Years of Light Quanta" for the students on the next day.
