Atomic mystery: Geometry of the electron revealed

What does an electron look like? While physicists have long speculated, the geometry of the electron has been revealed for the first time. This insight may help with the development of quantum computers.

Accessing the tiny magnet within the core of a single atom

Scientists have achieved a major scientific breakthrough by detecting the nuclear magnetism, or "nuclear spin" of a single atom.

Can machines be taught to spot the essential?

Zurich - Physicists are examining the possibility of harnessing machine learning as an integral part of the physical reasoning process, developing platforms to help advance science.

Powerful microscope shrunk to dime-size

Dallas - A high-technology imaging device has been created, in the form of a an atomic force microscope on a chip. The microscope is powerful and it can be manufactured at a low-cost.

Investing in the future of graphene, as lab scoops $4.5 million

Manchester - Graphene is heralded as the wonder material that will lead to a range of improved electronic devices. It was discovered 10 years ago at the University of Manchester, and the pioneering institution has just been awarded a large grant.

Op-Ed: The God particle has finally been discovered

On Wednesday, 4 July 2012, in Geneva, Switzerland, scientists working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced that they have found the elusive Higgs boson particles, sometimes referred to as the God particle.

Scientists capture first-ever image of atoms moving in a molecule

Scientists at Ohio and Kansas State Universities say they have captured the first-ever image of atoms moving in a molecule. They used a laser to knock an electron out of its orbit and used the diffraction pattern to construct a 3D "movie" of the atom.

Viennese university physicists create first quantum twin atoms

Vienna - Will the first quantum twin atoms experience quantum entanglement? In the mysterious world of quantum physics, quantum particles, even at a distance, share similar physical properties. Physicists have created the world's first quantum twin atoms.

Physicists Get Two Atoms to Communicate: Quantum Internet Soon to Follow

Researchers at the University of Michigan have succeeded in getting two atoms to communicate, even at a distance from each other. This provides great insight into creating what has been called the "Quantum Internet".
