The performance of all of today's electronic devices depends on the quality of the semiconductor materials they're made of. Now physicists have demonstrated that mixing two semiconductors can reduce the levels of deep-level defects...
“I just shot a girl,” a dark-haired man said as he walked out of the American Physical Society offices. “Call an ambulance.” After that, the dark-haired man stepped into an elevator, rode nine stories down, and boarded a train to Boston. It was July...
Physicists in the U.K. have shown that a superconductor can transfer a magnetic field from a magnet to a non-magnetic metal without becoming magnetized itself. The surprising effect is not predicted by any prevailing theory of superconductivity and could have important applications...
Typically, astronomers study the kinetic relationships between and among planetary bodies to gauge the gravitational pull of a celestial body, and thus, measure its mass. But in analyzing pulsars – pairs of rotating neutron stars left in the wake of a supernova –...
Scientists experimenting with A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE), a component of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have made measurements of particle mass and electric charge that confirm the existence of fundamental symmetry in nature, according to a release from the...
In a new study, scientists in Japan have reported the first evidence of quantum tunneling as a mechanism for the surface diffusion of hydrogen atoms on the surface of ice. Read the associated abstract of the Physical Review Letters article.
