Philip W. Anderson, Nobel Laureate in Physics, is dead at 96

In the 1960s and 1970s, Dr. Anderson’s theory of superconductivity, in which certain alloys and metals lose all resistance to electrical currents at temperatures close to absolute zero. Later in his career, he turned to high-temperature superconductors that work at higher temperatures – even though they are still cold – than conventional superconductors, which leads to more efficient electrical transmission. …

A Physics Magic Trick: Take 2 Sheets of Carbon and Twist

In the universe of office supplies, pencil lead – a mixture of graphite and clay, which does not include any lead – appears unexceptionally beyond its ability to draw dark lines. sheet of graphite – a one-atom-thick layer of carbon atoms laid out in a honeycomb pattern – is a wonder. This ultrathin carbon, called graphene, is more than 200 …

Quantum physics: Ménage à trois photon style

A quantum network with a triangular structure allows for a fundamentally new type of quantum correlation. Photo credits: © UNIGE Entanglement is one of the properties specific to quantum particles. For example, if two photons become entangled, the quantum state of the first correlates perfectly with the quantum state of the second, even if they are distant from each other. …

Scientists discover hidden information in the 140-year-old concept of fundamental physics

Physicists have found a way to access physical information that, according to a recent publication, has been hidden from science for 140 years. As early as 1879, the physicist Edwin Hall discovered that electric currents bend when placed in a magnetic field, creating a voltage and a new electric field perpendicular to the current. Scientists have used this phenomenon, known …
