Researchers design new experiments to map and test the quantum domain – Harvard Gazette

In their study published in Nature, Ni and his team set out to identify all the possible outcomes of the energy state, start to finish, of a reaction between two molecules of potassium and rubidium, a reaction more complex than…

Physics Projects – DIY Physics Experiments

Science experiments are a great way to introduce children, or the child in all of us, to fundamental scientific principles. Here are some cool physics projects you can do at home. For each of these experiments, it is a good…

An IPS officer who loved his physics experiments

B. Prasada Rao dies of cardiac arrest in the United States Many IPS officers who served as police commissioners in the city stand out in their own right, but Bayyarapu Prasada Rao was different from the rest. Born September 11,…

One of the oldest science experiments in the world has just resumed in secret

Over a century ago, one of the oldest experiments in the history of science was started in East Lansing, Michigan. Every 20 years, scientists realize this. After further delay induced by the pandemic, the time was right again this week….

Laser experiments shed light on landslide physics

Experiments Cast Doubts Whether Quantum Spin Liquids Exist

When temperatures drop below zero degrees Celsius, water turns to ice. But does everything actually freeze if you cool it enough? In the classic picture, matter becomes inherently solid at low temperatures. Quantum mechanics can, however, break this rule. Thus,…

Particle physics experiments strengthen evidence for a new force of nature

A recently completed experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) on the outskirts of Chicago produced strong data suggesting that a new force of nature may have been discovered. If this result is ultimately confirmed, it would require a…

‘Tending’ results of 2 experiments defy the rules of physics

Preliminary results from two experiments suggest that something is wrong with the way physicists think the universe works, a prospect that has baffled and delighted the field of particle physics. Tiny particles called muons don’t quite do what they’re expected…

Laser-driven experiments provide insight into the formation of the universe: NewsCenter

March 25, 2021 A close-up of the Laser Energetics Laboratory’s experimental target, consisting of two sheets and a pair of grids, held together by cylindrical shields. Each target is approximately the size of a…

String and Tape Experiments: AIP Publishing Books

Physics is an experimental science, and the only way to get a feel for it is through hands-on experiments. However, experimenting with expensive physics equipment in schools is not an option for students. String and Duct Tape Experiments brings together…
