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.

Radio Waves 'See' through Walls

“By showing the locations of people within a building during hostage situations, fires or other emergencies, radio tomography can help law enforcement and…

Quantum-limited Measurement Method for Nanosensors

New fabrication techniques have enabled the development of on-chip mechanical elements whose dimensions are on the nanometre (one millionth mm) scale. Their…

UA scientists discover quantum fingerprints of chaos

Even tiny, easily overlooked events can completely change the behavior of a complex system, to the point where there is no apparent order to most natural…

A road of no return

Light readily bounces off obstacles in its path. Some of these reflections are captured by our eyes, thus participating in the visual perception of the objects…

New aluminum-water rocket propellant promising for future space missions

The aluminum-ice, or ALICE, propellant might be used to launch rockets into orbit and for long-distance space missions and also to generate hydrogen for fuel…

Large-Scale Cousin of Elusive ’Magnetic Monopoles’ Found at NIST

In 1931, Paul Dirac, one of the rock stars of the physics world, made the somewhat startling prediction that “magnetic monopoles,” or particles possessing only…
