Physicists Observed 3 J/ψ Particles Emerging From A Single Collision Between Two Protons (Physics)

In a first for particle physics, the CMS collaboration has observed three J/ψ particles emerging from a single collision between two protons It’s a triple treat. By sifting through data from particle collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the CMS collaboration has seen not one, not two but three J/ψ particles emerging from a single collision … Continue reading Physicists Observed 3 J/ψ Particles Emerging From A Single Collision Between Two Protons (Physics)

The First 2D Super-solid Was Created in the Laboratory (Physics)

Using an ultracold quantum gas of dysprosium atoms, it was possible for the first time to obtain a two-dimensional “droplet” lattice that possesses both the properties of a solid and a superfluid. We talk about it with the scientist at the head of the team of experimental physicists who conducted the experiment, Francesca Ferlaino of the … Continue reading The First 2D Super-solid Was Created in the Laboratory (Physics)

Surfing On The Shock Wave Front (Physics)

Reproduced in the laboratory, through plasma physics experiments, the so-called “collisionless shocks”. The results show that the relativistic energies to which the particles are accelerated by the shock surfing acceleration process are sufficient to trigger a process capable of bringing them to energy values typical of cosmic rays. Among the authors of the study, published today in … Continue reading Surfing On The Shock Wave Front (Physics)

UNF Physics Researchers Discover New Electronic Phenomenon (Physics)

Physics researchers at the University of North Florida’s Atomic LEGO Lab discovered a new electronic phenomenon they call “asymmetric ferroelectricity”. The research led by Dr. Maitri Warusawithana, UNF physics assistant professor, in collaboration with researchers at the University of Illinois and the Arizona State University, demonstrated this phenomenon for the first time in engineered two-dimensional … Continue reading UNF Physics Researchers Discover New Electronic Phenomenon (Physics)

Researchers Discover New Limit of Trapping Light At the Nanoscale (Physics)

Physicists from the University of Southampton and ETH Zürich have reached a new threshold of light-matter coupling at the nanoscale. The international research, published this week in Nature Photonics, combined theoretical and experimental findings to establish a fundamental limitation of our ability to confine and exploit light. The collaboration focused on photonic nano-antennas fabricated in ever … Continue reading Researchers Discover New Limit of Trapping Light At the Nanoscale (Physics)
