Interstellar travelers may be helped by physicist's calculations that solve the Pioneer anomaly

(Phys.org)—Former President Bill Clinton recently expressed his support for interstellar travel at the 100 Year Spaceship Symposium, an international event advocating for human expansion into other star systems. Interstellar travel will depend upon extremely precise measurements of every factor involved in the mission. The knowledge of those factors may be improved by the solution a University of Missouri researcher found to a puzzle that has stumped astrophysicists for decades.

Topological superconductors: Seeking a robust home for qubits

A new study, taking into account realistic conditions for the first time, shows that Majorana qubits are possible.

Nobel Prize to Haroche and Wineland | Cosmic Variance

Nobody comes to these parts (at least, they shouldn’t) looking for insight into atomic physics, quantum optics, and related fields, but hearty congratulations to Serge Haroche and David Wineland for sharing this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics.

Graphene membranes may lead to enhanced natural gas production, less CO2 pollution

Engineering researchers have produced the first experimental results showing that atomically thin graphene membranes with tiny pores can effectively and efficiently separate gas molecules through size-selective sieving.

Researchers make progress in understanding, predicting solder joint failures

(Phys.org)—The reliability and longevity of electronics are critical to our interconnected world that is so dependent upon Internet and telecommunications technology. The computers, routers and switches, phones, and all the devices that link us together must be dependable down to the solder joints that connect integrated circuits to circuit boards, which can be an Achilles heel in an otherwise failure-free device.

Superconducting magnet researchers develop new HTS technology

(Phys.org)—World records have been broken this year not only in sports by Olympic athletes in London, but also in high temperature superconducting magnet technology by the Superconducting Magnet Division (SMD) staff at BNL.
