An international group of physicists has created, identified and photographed synthetic magnetic monopoles, paving the way for the detection of the particles in nature.
Amherst, Massachusetts — Nearly 85 years after pioneering theoretical physicist Paul Dirac predicted the possibility of their Read More
(a) The field of a magnetic source (right) is appearing as an isolated magnetic monopole when passing through the magnetostatic wormhole; the whole spherical device is magnetically undetectable. (b) The wormhole is composed of (from left to right) an outer spherical ferromagnetic metasurface, a spherical superconducting layer, and an inner Read More

The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has developed thermochromic windows capable of converting sunlight into electricity at a high efficiency. Read More
Winter sun setting over the tundra polygons in northern Alaska in November 2015. As winter sets in and snow settles, the soils take time to freeze completely and continue to emit carbon dioxide long into the new year.
A newly published study reveals that warmer temperatures and thawing soils may be Read More
A game between VfL Osnabrück and RB Leipzig came to an abrupt end on Monday evening after a referee was hit with a cigarette lighter.
With Osnabrück leading aRouter für die Hutschienet 1:0 about 71 minutes into the DFB Cup game, Leipzig forward Davie Selke got into a dispute with Osnabrücker Read More
A gold particle five nanometers in width weighs just a few megadaltons, a tiny unit of measure used in biochemistry that is equivalent to the atomic mass unit.However, researchers at the California Institute of Technology and CEA-Leti, a government-funded research organization in Grenoble, France, have bu gprs ilt a scale Read More
From bringing canines to work to having dedicated dog swimming pool days, it’s fair to say that Germany takes its Hunde seriously. We dug into the history and spoke to pet owners, to examine why the country really is 'ein Land das Hunde liebt' (a dog loving place).‘Wer mich liebt, Read More
This image illustrates the entanglement of a large number of atoms. The atoms, shown in purple, are shown mutually entangled with one another.
Researchers have developed a new technique that can entangle thousands of atoms with a single photon, opening the door to a new class of entangled states.
Physicists from MIT Read More
