The stunning experiment, which reconstructs the properties of entangled photons from a 2D interference pattern, could be used to design faster quantum computers.
From the Standard Model to the Large Hadron Collider and from quantum physics to the Higgs boson, read about the latest discoveries in particle physics here.
For the first time, researchers were able to transmit, or "tunnel," sound waves across extremely small distances between two crystals in a vacuum.
Astronomer Carl Sagan once said that humanity is "made of star stuff." In a new video, astrophysicist Suzanna Randall explains what that actually means and where the elements in our body come from.
A new type of chemistry performed at very cold temperatures on very small particles enables quick, precise reactions.
The transparent, chargeless quasiparticle could shed more light on the underlying mechanics of superconductivity
The discovery promises to spark a revolution in physics, but more results are needed to know for sure.
Meet the 'bubbletrons' — theoretical particle accelerators that may have helped build the universe as we know it.
Astronomers have detected high-energy neutrinos coming from within our Milky Way galaxy, potentially opening up an exciting new window of research.
By shining a strong beam of light through two chemical compounds, scientists discovered a unique new state of matter made of particles called excitons.
Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider are closing in on an explanation for why we live in a universe of matter and not antimatter.
Dark matter, the invisible material that makes up the vast majority of the universe's mass, may collect itself to form atoms, a new simulation shows.
In a distant star system, a sunlike star orbits an invisible object that may be the first example of a 'boson star' made of dark matter, new research suggests.
Scientists have discovered a connection between supermassive black holes and densely packed gluon 'walls' called color glass condensates.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star Paul Rudd can’t get enough of the quantum realm. Rudd took to YouTube to ask a NASA quantum physicist some big questions.
The early universe may have been such a violent place that space-time itself fractured like a pane of glass, releasing gravitational waves that astronomers say we may have already detected.
Scientists have proposed a way that the universe could stop expanding, ending in a 'Big Crunch' that resets space and time as we know it.
In new research, astronomers have mapped the magnetic field in the historic Tycho supernova remnant that accelerates charged particles close to the speed of light.
Leonardo da Vinci's centuries-old sketches reveal he may have understood key aspects of gravity long before Galileo, Newton and Einstein.
Reference Discover how gluons bind quarks together to form protons and neutrons and explore the form weird form of matter in which they existed just after the Big Bang.
Reference Here we look at what leptons are, how they fit in the Standard Model of particle physics, and their importance in atoms and particle decay.
