Japanese scientists develop near unbreakable glass, as tough as steel

A team of researchers with The University of Tokyo and Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute has created a type of glass that is stronger than many metals. In their paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers describe how they overcame one of the major hurdles in creating glass imbued with extra amounts of an oxide of aluminum, by using what they call aerodynamic levitation.


New artificial skin can let robots 'feel' heat and pressure simultaneously

A team of researchers with Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology and Dong-A University, both in South Korea, has developed an artificial skin that can detect both pressure and heat with a high degree of sensitivity, at the same time.

Scientists detected a Particle made entirely of pure Nuclear Force

Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology (UT Wien) have come up with data that may prove that the meson f0(1710) particle could actually be the long sought-after "glueball" — a particle comprised entirely of pure force, which is integral to how we understand not only nuclear energy, but all energy.

'Excited atoms' live longer when placed in front of mirrors

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have succeeded in an experiment where they get an artificial atom to survive ten times longer than normal by positioning the atom in front of a mirror. The findings were recently published in the journal Nature Physics.

Researchers break distance record for quantum teleportation

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have "teleported" or transferred quantum information carried in light particles over 63 miles (102 kilometers) of optical fiber, four times farther than the previous record.

Scientists conduct most precise test to date of light speed finding Speed of Light is indeed Constant

Physicists have reported the most accurate test to date of Lorentz symmetry for photons by looking for variations in the speed of light, but found no violations. The study, by Moritz Nagel at the Humboldt-University of Berlin, Stephen Parker at The University of Western Australia, and their co-authors, is published in a recent issue of Nature Communications.
