A quark like no other: Searching for 'bottom quark'

A University of Iowa physicist is at the forefront of the search for a missing particle that could prove whether the Higgs boson—believed to give mass to all matter—exists.

Studying the quantum vacuum: Traffic jam in empty space

An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by Professor Alfred Leitenstorfer has now shown how to manipulate the electric vacuum...Show More Summary

Molecular fountain my lead to more precise measurement of physical constants

(—A team of researchers at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam has built, for the first time, a molecular fountain. The group has published a paper in the journal Physical Review Letters describing how they created the fountain, how it works and their ideas on how it might be used to more precisely measure physical constants.

Improved measurements of antiproton's magnetic moment deepen mystery of baryonic asymmetry

One of the deepest mysteries of physics today is why we seem to live in a world composed only of matter, while the Big Bang should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter. Around the world, scientists including Stefan Ulmer's...Show More Summary

Focus: Celebrated Optical Trick Goes Vibrational

Author(s): David Lindley A micromechanical device generates a series of precise, equally spaced vibration frequencies, analogous to the light of the “optical frequency comb,” which has dramatically improved precision measurements. [Physics 10, 4] Published Tue Jan 17, 2017

The value of basic research

How can we measure the worth of scientific knowledge? Economic analysts give it a shot.
