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.
By combining the powers of two single-atom-thick carbon structures, researchers at the George Washington University's Micro-propulsion and Nanotechnology Laboratory 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.
Graphene, single-atom-thick sheets of pure carbon, is lighter than steel but many times stronger, with better electrical conductivity than copper.
Elemer Bernath was a physics teacher here in 1955 when he took three students - Bill Spencer, Jerry Schaffer, Bob Adair - to the first Colorado Science and Engineer Fair.
What is the universe made of? The ancient Greeks conceived of the "atom", the indivisible unit of matter.
The most effective way to tackle debilitating diseases is to punch them at the start and keep them from growing.
Researchers from Cornell University and Brookhaven National Laboratory have shown how to switch a particular transition metal oxide, a lanthanum nickelate , from a metal to an insulator by making the material less than a nanometer thick.
Supernovas are the spectacular ends to the lives of many massive stars. These explosions, which occur on average twice a century in the Milky Way, can produce enormous amounts of energy and be as bright as a galaxy itself.
MESSENGER has been getting closer to Mercury since March. It's now closer to the planet than any spacecraft has been before.
It was 2012, and physicists had just announced the big news: CERN's Large Hadron Collider had delivered what looked like a Higgs particle, the capstone of a decades-long search to complete the so-called Standard Model of particle physics - a discovery that would lead the following year to a Nobel Prize .
For decades physicists have been working on a beautiful theory that has promised to lead to a deeper understanding of the quantum world.
Scientists might argue that the root cause of Earth's rotation is angular momentum, but come on: We all know it's money, plain and simple.
