The Anticipation of Events in Time

How does the brain learn when an event is more probable to happen?

New database enhances genomics research collaboration

The MaveDB database is a repository for data from experiments – called multiplex assays of variant effect (MAVEs) – that systematically measure the impact of…

Collision of individual atoms leads to twofold change of angular momentum

Until a few decades ago it was unthinkable for physicists to carry out experiments with individual atomic particles. Erwin Schr√∂dinger, one of the pioneers of…

Argonne discovery yields self-healing diamond-like carbon

The tribologists — scientists who study friction, wear, and lubrication — and computational materials scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's)…

A mini particle accelerator

Particle accelerators are several kilometres long and costs many millions of euros; large ones cost over a billion euros. There are therefore only a small…

Extremely dense – approaching a poorly understood state of matter

A team from the Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics at Kiel University, headed by Professor Michael Bonitz, has now been able to discover new…

One step closer to a new kind of computer

An international group of physicists, including Aleksandr Golubov, head of the MIPT Laboratory of Topological Quantum Phenomena in Superconductor Systems,…

Reshaping the solar spectrum to turn light to electricity

When it comes to installing solar cells, labor cost and the cost of the land to house them constitute the bulk of the expense. The solar cells — made often of…

The quantum physics of artificial light harvesting

Plants and bacteria make use of sunlight with remarkably high efficiency: nine out of ten absorbed light particles are being put to use in an ordinary…

Liquids on Fibers – Slipping or Flowing?

Thin fibers play a tremendous role in daily life, from the use of glass fibers in ultra-fast data transmission to textile fibers. In order to enable special…
