Extreme infrared laser pulses reveal frozen electron waves

Scientists have deployed extreme infrared laser pulses to unlock frozen electron waves in magnetite, which is generally regarded as the world's oldest magnetic material. This solves a long-standing puzzle in physics.

Spin migration raises prospects for zero-power computers

New research investigating the spin migration on electrons opens up the prospects for a new generation of zero-power computers.

Electron tunneling for new light emitting devices

San Diego - Researchers have applied solution-based chemical synthesis techniques in order to improve light emitting devices. The new technique could assist with the development of more advanced electronic devices.

Altering electrons for improved quantum computing

Two new ways to manipulate electron interactions, from Purdue University, open up new possibilities for the design and scaling up of quantum computing devices.

Tracking time without using a clock

Researchers have measured the time delay in electron photoemission without using a clock (a very tiny fraction of time). This carries importance for developing cutting-edge technology.

Future solar storm could cause trillions in damage to technology

In 1859, an invisible wave crashed into the Earth. Electrons, swept up like so much detritus in the magnetic current, coursed along telegraph wires.

Diamonds are not always forever

Researchers have shown that nanodiamonds in treated coal only last seconds before fading back into less-structured forms of carbon under the impact of an electron beam.

Blasting oysters with electrons to prevent food poisoning

Austin - Researchers have studied how electron-beam pasteurization of raw oysters may reduce the possibility of food poisoning through viruses like norovirus and hepatitis.

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.

Higher Efficiency From Hairy Solar Cells

A new manufacturing process could mean improved efficiency for solar cells. The technique, which is being pioneered by researchers at the University of California, San Diego, results in “hairy” solar cells.
