An extraordinarily precise measurement made by Oxford researchers using the LHCb experiment at CERN has provided the first evidence that charm mesons can change into their antiparticle and back again. Mixing phenomenon For...
A team of engineers at Lumentum developed a lumped-element (LE) electroabsorption modulator-integrated distributed feedback (EA-DFB) laser capable of 2-kilometer transmission—a transmission length requirement for many modern large data centers—of 224 Gbps signals operating over a wide...
Research funded by by Sandia's Laboratory Directed Research and Development program and the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies develops world's smallest and best acoustic amplifier that can boost signal strength by a factor of 100 in 0.008 inch...
Researchers have now been able to intercept a chat between two atoms. How materials behave depends on the interactions between countless atoms. You could see this as a giant group chat in which atoms are continuously exchanging...
A new high-powered electron microscope developed by researchers from Cornell University sets a new world record as having the most fine-tuned resolution. This latest form of electron ptychography will enable scientists to locate individual atoms in all...
Scientists discover the soft matter defect named the "twin defect" that occurs in soft matter systems, like oils, surfactants, biological materials and natural polymers using an advanced imaging technique called slice-and-view scanning electron microscopy. This discovery could induce novel optical...
Quantum machine learning was a terra incognita. But not anymore? A new theorem of quantum machine learning shows that information run through an information scrambler such as a black hole will reach a...
A new study about electron’s dual nature breaks the rules of elementary physics. Researchers discover experimental evidence that electrons behave as if they are made up of two particles. One of the particles called "spin" provides its...
Simon Fraser University researchers have designed a remarkably fast engine that taps into a new kind of fuel -- information. The development of this engine, which converts the random jiggling of a microscopic particle...
Unlike the oscillations of sound waves, the oscillations of light are so fast that extremely complex equipment is needed to observe them directly. However, it is possible to measure the frequencies of these oscillations indirectly with frequency...
The use of multimode optical fibers to boost the information capacity of the Internet is severely hampered by distortions that occur during the transmission of images because of a phenomenon called modal crosstalk. However,...
