Prof Peter Higgs is among the Nobel laureates set to receive their medals on Tuesday at a ceremony in Stockholm.
The ground-breaking work has been recognised through publication of a paper in the journal, Nature Physics.
Teams based in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics at LMU and at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have, for the first time, succeeded in measuring the lengths of ultrashort bursts of highly energetic electrons using the electric fields of laser light.
Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics -- so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a distance."
The Edinburgh University academic first proposed the fundamental particle which now bears his name almost 50 years ago, but it is just two years since the Higgs Boson was found.
The Sun is mostly a big ball of hydrogen, a million miles in diameter, held together by gravity.
The discovery of the Higgs boson particle, for which Peter Higgs is to receive a Nobel Prize for Physics, marks the completion of the Standard Model of Particle Physics.
What if the universe had no beginning, and time stretched back infinitely without a big bang to start things off? That's one possible consequence of an idea called "rainbow gravity," so-named because it posits that gravity's effects on spacetime are felt differently by different wavelengths of light, aka different colors in the rainbow.
When 17-year-old Luis Cepeda began attending Saturday Morning Physics in early October at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, he had very little exposure to physics.
Students may soon be able to reach out and touch some of the theoretical concepts they are taught in their physics classes thanks to a novel idea devised by a group of researchers from Imperial College London.
Madame Marie Curie is a scientific icon remembered for her pioneering work in the field of radiation research.
Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics , Vol. 2013, No. 02. , 044, doi:10.1088/1475-7516/2013/02/044 Forthcoming radio continuum surveys will cover large volumes of the observable Universe and will reach to high redshifts, making them potentially powerful probes of dark energy, modified gravity and non-Gaussianity.
