Giant planets offer help in faster research on material surfaces

New, fast and accurate algorithm, based on the mathematical formalism used to model processes accompanying interaction of light with gas planet atmospheres, is a major step towards better understanding of physical and chemical properties of materials’ surfaces studied under laboratory conditions.

NASA's Spitzer Sees Milky Way's Blooming Countryside

New views from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope show blooming stars in our Milky Way galaxy's more barren territories, far from its crowded core.

NASA Partners With the LEGO Group for Design and Build Contest

NASA and the LEGO Group are partnering to inspire the next generation of aerospace engineers by offering a new design competition. The competition will spur students of all ages to use the toy bricks in building models of future airplanes and spacecraft.

NASA Chandra, Spitzer Study Suggests Black Holes Abundant Among The Earliest Stars

By comparing infrared and X-ray background signals across the same stretch of sky, an international team of astronomers has discovered evidence of a significant number of black holes that accompanied the first stars in the universe.

Team shows first nuclear material detection by single short-pulse-laser-driven neutron source

Los Alamos National Laboratory researchers have successfully demonstrated for the first time that laser-generated neutrons can be enlisted as a useful tool in the War on Terror.

Spintronics approach enables new quantum technologies

Researchers highlight the power of emerging quantum technologies in two recent articles. New technologies exploit quantum mechanics, the physics that dominates the atomic world, to perform disparate tasks such as nanoscale temperature measurement and processing quantum information with lasers.

Bringing cheaper, 'greener' lighting to market with inkjet-printed hybrid quantum dot LEDs

It's not easy going green. For home lighting applications, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) hold the promise of being both environmentally friendly and versatile. Though not as efficient as regular light-emitting diodes (LEDs), they offer a wider range of material choices and are more energy efficient than traditional lights. OLEDs can also be applied to flexible surfaces, which may lead to lights or television displays that can be rolled up and stowed in a pocket.

Correlation phenomena observed by CMS may shed light on exotic state of matter

Observing a phenomenon for the first time helps us fine-tune our understanding of the Universe. CMS physicists found such a phenomenon in September 2012 in proton-lead collisions, an observation that has since been reinforced by much more data from such collisions collected in early 2013. What CMS has found might help us get a clearer picture of the earliest moments of the existence of our Universe.

Quantum model helps solve mysteries of water

Scientists have revealed a major breakthrough in the modeling of water that could shed light on its mysterious properties.
