Thermal manipulation of plasmons in atomically thin films

In a new paper published in Light Science & Application, a team from ICFO-Institut de Ciencies Fotoniques (Barcelona, Spain) has proposed an all-optical…

Moon glows brighter than sun in images from NASA's Fermi

Gamma-ray observations are not sensitive enough to clearly see the shape of the Moon's disk or any surface features. Instead, Fermi's Large Area Telescope…

Ultra-cold lithium atoms shedding light on superfluid formation

Abrupt onset of pairing points to best theories for describing ultra-cold 'Fermi gases'
Implications for understanding of superconductors, superfluids in…

JILA researchers make coldest quantum gas of molecules

As featured on the cover of the Feb. 22 issue of Science, the team produced a gas of potassium-rubidium (KRb) molecules at temperatures as low as 50 nanokelvin…

The marriage of topology and magnetism in a Weyl system

The interplay of symmetry, relativistic effects and, in magnetic materials, the magnetic structure, allows for the realization of a wide variety of topological…

'Extreme' telescopes find the second-fastest-spinning pulsar

A pulsar is the core of a massive star that exploded as a supernova. In this stellar remnant, also called a neutron star, the equivalent mass of half a million…

New understanding of superconductor's 'normal' state may help solve longstanding puzzle

Vidya Madhavan, a physics professor and member of the Frederick Seitz Materials Research Lab at the U. of I., led the experiment. She explains, “We began from…

Scientists reach back in time to discover some of the most power-packed galaxies

When the universe was young, a supermassive black hole — bloated to the bursting point with stupendous power — heaved out a jet of particle-infused energy…

Possible Extragalactic Source of High-Energy Neutrinos

Nearly 10 billion years ago in a galaxy known as PKS B1424-418, a dramatic explosion occurred. Light from this blast began arriving at Earth in 2012. Now, an…

NASA's Fermi satellite kicks off a blazar-detecting bonanza

“When we looked at all the data from this event, from gamma rays to radio, we realized the measurements told us something we didn't expect about how the black…
