Tiniest secrets of integrated circuits revealed with new imaging technique

The secrets of the tiniest active structures in integrated circuits can be revealed using a non-destructive imaging technique, scientists show.

Sustainable chemistry at the quantum level

Scientists are now using new quantum chemistry computing procedures to categorize hypothetical electrocatalysts that are 'too slow' or 'too expensive', far more thoroughly and quickly than was considered possible a few years ago.

May the force be with you: Detecting ultrafast light by its force

A research team has developed a new technique to detect nano-sized imperfections in materials. They believe this discovery will lead to improvements in the optical detectors used in a wide range of technologies, from cell phones to cameras and fiber optics, as well as in solar cells.

Improved modelling of nuclear structure in francium aids searches for new physics

Thanks to new research, we now know with much greater certainty the nuclear magnetic moments of francium atoms.

ATLAS experiment reports the observation of photon collisions producing weak-force carriers

During the International Conference on High-Energy Physics (ICHEP 2020), the ATLAS collaboration presented the first observation of photon collisions producing pairs of W bosons, elementary particles that carry the weak force, one of the four fundamental forces. The result demonstrates a new way of using the LHC, namely as a high-energy photon collider directly probing electroweak interactions. It confirms one of the main predictions of electroweak theory—that force carriers can interact with themselves—and provides new ways to probe it.

Scientists propose a novel method for controlling fusion reactions

Researchers have developed a pulsed method for stabilizing magnetic islands that can cause disruptions in fusion plasmas.

Professor's milestone in nuclear physics seeks to understand the universe itself

A nuclear physics professor from Florida International University was among a team of researchers that proposed something so out of this world, colleagues first hesitated to accept it was possible.

Casimir force used to control and manipulate objects

A collaboration between researchers from the University of Western Australia and the University of California Merced has provided a new way to measure tiny forces and use them to control objects.

SLAC's new X-ray beamline aids COVID-19 research

There's a new bright spot at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource: Beam Line 12-1, an experimental station devoted to determining the structures of biological macromolecules with high brilliance X-rays. Researchers from around the country are using it to examine the atomic structure and function of different components of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Crew Dragon Safely Returns Astronauts to Earth, Despite Minor Hiccup

The astronauts' exit from the capsule was slightly delayed by noxious gas, but they ultimately made it back to Earth unscathed.
