Tiny solenoid looking for new physics

CMS detector point of view. credit: CERN As the third round of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) approaches, the LHC experiments are still publishing new results based on previous operating data. Although no new discoveries were announced, small deviations from expectations appear in a small number of analyses. At the current level, these aberrations can … Read more

Scientific coverage of climate change can change minds — in a nutshell

Credit: Pixabay/CC0 Public Domain A new study suggests that scientific reporting on climate change is leading Americans to adopt more accurate beliefs and support government action on the issue, but those gains are fragile. Researchers have found that these subtle beliefs quickly fade and can be eroded when people are exposed to skeptical coverage of … Read more

A breakthrough in the pursuit of light control to develop the next generation of sensing and quantum computing

Credit: Pixabay/CC0 Public Domain Scientists have made a pivotal new breakthrough in the pursuit of light control to develop the next generation of sensing and quantum computing. The team of researchers, including Dr Oleksandr Kyriienko from the University of Exeter, have shown that light control can be achieved by induction and nonlinear measurement. Stage Switch … Read more

Magnetic superstructures as a promising material for 6G technology

Credit: Unsplash/CC0 Public Domain When will the sixth generation become a reality? The race to realize sixth generation (6G) wireless communication systems requires the development of suitable magnetic materials. Scientists from Osaka Metropolitan University and their colleagues have detected an unprecedented collective resonance at high frequencies in a magnetic superstructure called a spin-helical soliton (CSL) … Read more

Keep objects lifted by airborne sound despite interference

Real-time 3D audio visualization with random scattering surfaces. (a) The mathematical concept of our 3D acoustic technology that can create many fly-traps in the presence of sound-dispersing physical objects. Pmax represents the maximum pressure amplitude of the sound field. (b) Experimental example of our technique that can fly four particles with a display screen (i.e. … Read more

Are magnetic arcs of the sun an optical illusion?

Coronal rings on the Sun are captured in ultraviolet light using the 171 angstroms channel of the Aerial Imaging Collector (AIA) instrument at NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. Credit: NASA/SDO From afar, the sun appears blank and featureless in visible light. But through a solar telescope of different wavelengths, it was revealed that much more. In … Read more

The most important number? It’s 137. That’s why

As the mathematician de la Sol famousThree is a magic number. But if physicist Richard Feynman can be believed, then this figure is less than 400 times. For Feynman, you see, the “magic number” is about 1/137 – specifically, it’s 1/137.035999913. Physicists define it as α, or the fine-structure constant. “It’s been a mystery since … Read more
