A team of U.S. scientists has observed a new state of matter at the interface between two oxide materials. The discovery shows electrons can bind together in ways similar to how quarks combine to form neutrons and protons.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is getting a big boost to its performance. Unfortunately, for fans of ground-breaking physics, the whole thing has to be shut down for two years while the work is done.
This is just the latest result from efforts around the world to create the best-ever atomic clock. Perhaps these clocks could detect dark matter from the way its gravity alters spacetime.
This surprising conclusion emerges from new work published by theoreticians from Warsaw and Potsdam. The scheme they posit unifies all the forces of nature in a way that is consistent with existing observations.
Scientists this week released a conceptual design report for a next-generation particle accelerator in China, which would serve as a “Higgs boson factory,” as its proponents have called it.
The new and unknown particle is just over a fifth of the mass of the Higgs boson. There's nothing in any of the current models that predicts this mass. However, It's unlikely to be physics-breaking.
Three scientists from the United States, France and Canada are awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for the development of short, intense laser pulses and for optical tweezers that can grab tiny particles.
Physicists have discovered how to manipulate and control individual molecules for a millionth of a billionth of a second, after being intrigued by some seemingly odd results.
For the first time, physicists at CERN have observed a benchmark atomic energy transition in anithydrogen, a major step toward cooling and manipulating the basic form of antimatter.
There are three types of neutrinos in the Standard Model, the blueprint of particle physics. Experimental results add evidence for the existence of a fourth, more mysterious type - the sterile neutrino.
