You can't get entangled without a wormhole

MIT physicist finds the creation of entanglement simultaneously gives rise to a wormhole

09-12-2013

Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics — so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a distance." Essentially, entanglement involves two particles, each occupying multiple states at once — a ...

Using the sun to illuminate a basic mystery of matter

09-07-2013

Antimatter has been detected in solar flares via microwave and magnetic-field data, according to a presentation by NJIT Research Professor of Physics Gregory D. Fleishman and two co-researchers at the 44th meeting of the American Astronomical Society's Solar Physics Division. This research sheds ...

Researchers pinpoint how trees play role in smog production

29-04-2013

After years of scientific uncertainty and speculation, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill show exactly how trees help create one of society's predominant environmental and health concerns: air pollution. It has long been known that trees produce and emit isoprene, an ...

Measuring the magnetism of antimatter

Researchers measure antiprotons more accurately than ever before

28-03-2013

In a breakthrough that could one day yield important clues about the nature of matter itself, a team of Harvard scientists have succeeding in measuring the magnetic charge of single particles of matter and antimatter more accurately than ever before. As described in a paper in Physical Review ...

Smaller is better in the viscous zone

25-10-2010

Being the right size and existing in the limbo between a solid and a liquid state appear to be the secrets to improving the efficiency of chemical catalysts that can create better nanoparticles or more efficient energy sources. When matter is in this transitional state, a catalyst can achieve ...

Sniffing out shoe bombs: A new and simple sensor for explosive chemicals

22-10-2010

University of Illinois chemists have developed a simple sensor to detect an explosive used in shoe bombs. It could lead to inexpensive, easy-to-use devices for luggage and passenger screening at airports and elsewhere. Triacetone triperoxide (TATP) is a high-powered explosive that in recent ...

Nano antenna concentrates light

Intensity increases 1,000-fold in Rice lab's experiment

23-09-2010

Everybody who's ever used a TV, radio or cell phone knows what an antenna does: It captures the aerial signals that make those devices practical. A lab at Rice University has built an antenna that captures light in the same way, at a small scale that has big potential. Condensed matter physicist ...

Stretched polymer snaps back smaller than it started

30-08-2010

Crazy bands are cool because no matter how long they've been stretched around a kid's wrist, they always return to their original shape, be it a lion or a kangaroo. Now a Duke and Stanford chemistry team has found a polymer molecule that's so springy it snaps back from stretching much smaller ...

LSU researcher receives NSF rapid response grant to study health of marshes impacted by oil

Brings together three universities to develop detailed analysis and insight into molecular-level affects

12-08-2010

LSU Associate Professor of Chemistry Robert Cook has recently received a rapid response grant from the National Science Foundation, or NSF, to investigate the impact of oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster on Louisiana's highly fertile, productive and delicate marshlands by studying dissolved ...

New technique improves efficiency of biofuel production

14-07-2010

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a more efficient technique for producing biofuels from woody plants that significantly reduces the waste that results from conventional biofuel production techniques. The technique is a significant step toward creating a commercially ...
