Physics behind evaporation

Experiments reveal the physics of evaporation

It’s a process so fundamental to everyday life — in everything from your morning coffeemaker to the huge power plant that provides its electricity...
National High Magnetic Fieldac

National MagLab creates a miniature magnet producing the largest magnetic field...

A magnet which is half the size of a cardboard tissue roll has now the title of "world's strongest magnetic field". But the makers...

Revealing ‘hidden’ phases of matter through the power of light

Most people think of water as existing in only one of three phases: solid ice, liquid water, or gas vapour. But matter can exist...
Pentaquark

Evidence from Large Hadron Collider reveals structure of pentaquark

A new structure was detected from the world’s largest particle accelerator, LHC. It was an imported particle which has five quarks bounded together commonly...

Chip design drastically reduces energy needed to compute with light

MIT researchers have developed a novel “photonic” chip that uses light instead of electricity — and consumes relatively little power in the process. The...
Schrodinger cat in box

Researchers can predict the jumps of Schrodinger’s cat and save it

Researchers from Yale University have found out a way to catch and save the famous Schrodinger's cat, by anticipating its moves beforehand and taking...

Physicists create stable, strongly magnetized plasma jet in laboratory

When you peer into the night sky, much of what you see is plasma, a soupy amalgam of ultra-hot atomic particles. Studying plasma in...
transistors

Researchers a step closer in creating successor to shrinking transistors

Over the decades, computers and other electronic devices have shrunk in size and also been significantly faster. This has been possible as the makers...
nucleus ice freezing

Researchers accidentally discover unique property of crystalline ice

Water ice is not always produced equally. Under specific circumstances, its neat arrangement of lattice molecules in a crystalline fashion get disordered and then...
