The Quest for Absolute Zero Turns Up Strange and Surreal Superfluids

Getting anything down to true absolute zero-where there is no atomic movement whatsoever-is probably a physical impossibility. But in our quest to see how...

Smartphone components work beautifully at nearly absolute zero

How low can they go? Almost as low as you can go, it seems. For the first time, transistors of the sort used in...

Three-atom molecule cooled to near absolute zero for first time

MIT-Harvard Center for Ultracold AtomsCall it the big chill. Laser cooling has tackled its biggest molecule yet, bringing the temperature of a three-atom molecule...

Cooling to absolute zero mathematically outlawed after a century

plainpicture/Bernd SchumacherIT'S an absolute. Mathematics has put speed limits on cooling, finally proving a century-old law - that unless you have infinite time and...

Lossless Energy Transfer: Scientists Just Had Another Superconductor Breakthrough

Superconductors operating at temperatures over a hundred degrees warmer than absolute zero have been created using cuprates Room temperature superconductors would completely change the...

Nobel-Winning Physics Experiment Recreated by AI…In One Hour

Physicists from Australia have automated an experiment creating an extremely cold gas, known as a Bose-Einstein condensate. This development could eventually allow human scientists...

A lab-made black hole just gave us the strongest evidence yet...

Proposed by physicist Stephen Hawking back in 1974, Hawking radiation describes the small amounts of high-energy radiation that could theoretically escape the gravitational pull...

Engineers just made a quantum computer chip work at room temperature

Preparing conducting carbon nanospheres that operate as qubits at room temperature (right) by burning naphthalene (left). Dr Mohammad ChoucairMuch of the current research on...

Doomed Spacecraft Shows Tantalizing Hints of Surprising Black Hole Behavior

Hitomi's field of view, outlined in yellow, is shown over an image of the core of the Perseus cluster taken in X-rays by the...
