No more zigzags: Scientists uncover mechanism that stabilizes fusion plasmas

Article describes simulation of mechanism that eliminates sawtooth instabilities in fusion plasmas.

Researchers make and test atom-thick boron's unique domains

Defects are often observed when making borophene, the single-atom form of boron, but unlike in other two-dimensional materials, these mismatched lattices can assemble into ordered structures that preserve the material's metallic nature and electronic properties.

Study of high-energy neutrinos again proves Einstein right

A new study demonstrates that Einstein is right again. The most thorough test yet finds no Lorentz violation in high-energy neutrinos.

What's causing the voltage fade in Lithium-rich NMC cathode materials?

Researchers explain what's causing the performance-reducing 'voltage fade' that currently plagues a promising class of cathode materials called Lithium-rich NMC (nickel magnesium cobalt) layered oxides.

Microscopic trampoline may help create networks of quantum computers

Researchers have developed a microscopic ''trampoline'' that can absorb microwave energy and bounce it into laser light -- a crucial step for sending quantum signals over long distances.

Faster photons could enable total data security

Researchers have solved a key puzzle in quantum physics that could help to make data transfer totally secure.

A step closer to quantum computers: Researchers show how to directly observe quantum spin effects

Scientists have found a practical way to observe and examine the quantum effects of electrons in topological insulators and heavy metals. This could later pave the way for the development of advanced quantum computing components and devices.

Tuning into quantum: Scientists unlock signal frequency control of precision atom qubits

Scientists have achieved a new milestone in their approach to creating a quantum computer chip in silicon, demonstrating the ability to tune the control frequency of a qubit by engineering its atomic configuration.

Theorists publish highest-precision prediction of muon magnetic anomaly

Latest calculation based on how subatomic muons interact with all known particles comes out just in time for comparison with precision measurements at new 'Muon g-2' experiment.

How might dark matter interact with ordinary matter?

Scientists have imposed conditions on how dark matter may interact with ordinary matter. In the search for direct detection of dark matter, the experimental focus has been on WIMPs, or weakly interacting massive particles, the hypothetical particles thought to make up dark matter. But the research team invokes a different theory to challenge the WIMP paradigm: the self-interacting dark matter model, or SIDM.
