International team of scientists proposes plans for high-intensity gamma radiation source at CERN.
Using the principles of quantum mechanics, scientists unlock incredible computing powers, data storage, transmission, and encryption, one experiment at a time.
X-ray fingerprints of novel photocathode materials: A new route for theory and experiment to join hands
X‐ray absorption spectroscopy represents a valuable characterization tool for complex materials like multialkali antimonides.
An unexpected link between two entirely different fields of physics.
This edition of Pioneers in Science celebrates physicist Wilhelm Röntgen, winner of the 1901 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of “a new kind of ray”.
In honor of the UN’s International Day of Women in Science, this week we highlight Katherine Johnson, pioneering mathematician and NASA legend.
The remarkably agile arms of the octopus are a source of inspiration for the design of autonomous robots. With nearly two-thirds of their neurons residing in the eight arms, these appendages are able to sense and respond to environmental conditions with little to no...
Clarifying some of the misconceptions, limitations, and capabilities of CEM modelling to help researchers find the right tools for their needs.
Analysis reveals never-before-seen details about a type of thin film being explored for advanced microelectronics.
A recent study seeks to identify, understand, and solve issues surrounding the integration of ferro/piezo-electric materials with silicon technology.
Just as desktop PCs acquired some of the functions performed by room-sized mainframes, a Stanford team has prototyped a silicon chip that packs some of the punch delivered by current particle accelerators.
How did the results at CERN get so badly misrepresented?
