A informative and exciting article about the new experiments which will try to explain dark energy, the nature of matter and the fate of the universe. There may even be some practical applications for nanotechnology and energy production.
An international team of researchers has shown that it can control the quantum state of a single electron in a silicon transistor--even putting the electron in two places at once. Their discovery could help pave the way toward a practical quantum ...
Graphene, one-atom-thick sheets of carbon, conduct electrons better than silicon and have been made into fast, low-power transistors. Now, for the first time, researchers have measured the intrinsic strength of graphene, and they've confirmed it t...
