Physics and Astronomy

This area deals with the fundamental laws and building blocks of nature and how they interact, the properties and the behavior of matter, and research into space and time and their structures.

innovations-report provides in-depth reports and articles on subjects such as astrophysics, laser technologies, nuclear, quantum, particle and solid-state physics, nanotechnologies, planetary research and findings (Mars, Venus) and developments related to the Hubble Telescope.

Astronomers map distances to 56,000 galaxies

… largest-ever catalog. How old is our universe, and what is its size? A team of researchers led by University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa astronomers Brent Tully and Ehsan Kourkchi…

Artificial intelligence reduces a 100,000-equation quantum physics problem to only four equations

Researchers at the Flatiron Institute and their colleagues trained a machine learning tool to capture the physics of electrons moving on a lattice using far fewer equations than would typically…

Analysis of particles of the asteroid Ryugu delivers surprising results

In December 2020, a small landing capsule brought rock particles from the asteroid Ryugu to Earth – material from the beginnings of our solar system. The Japanese space probe Hayabusa…

Chiral oxide catalysts align electron spin

A research team from Münster and Pittsburgh first examined chiral oxide catalysts. The results are to help in the future production of spin-selective catalytic oxide materials, thus improving the efficiency…

New – and puzzling – features of mysterious fast radio bursts

New study by international team of scientists reveals an evolving, magnetized environment and surprising source location for deep-space fast radio bursts – observations that defy current understanding. Fast radio bursts…

Smashing heavy nuclei reveals proton size

Theoretical study exploits precision of new heavy ion collision data to predict how gluons are distributed inside protons and neutrons. The Science The nuclei of atoms are made up of protons and…
