Latest News

The Large Hadron Collider , the largest and most expensive scientific instrument ever built in peacetime,begins operations on September 10 when a beam of high-speed protons begins shooting around the...


A new experiment demonstrated that amoebas slow their motion in synchronization with periodic hostile changes in their environment. The amoebas even displayed anticipation to the periodically...

Controlling Cardiac Chaos-A Gentler Approach

Physics can save lives: a new type of defibrillation aims to reduce the voltage needed to shock out-of-control hearts back to a normal beating pattern. Ordinarily the beating heart is an orderly...

New nanoparticle vaccine is more effective but less expensive

Bioengineering researchers from the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland , have developed and patented a nanoparticle that can deliver vaccines more effectively, with fewer side effects, and at a fraction...

The Woodstock of Physics: the 20th Anniversary

The famous session at the March 1987 meeting of the American Physical Society, earned its nickname because of the rock-concert fervor inspired by the convergence of dozens of reports all bearing on copper-oxide superconductors. The 20th anniversary of this singular event was celebrated this week at the APS meeting in Denver.

Web-based System Leads To Better, More Timely Data

After two years of work, an innovative project using Web-based technologies to speed researcher access to a large body of new scientific data has demonstrated that not only access to but also the quality of the data has improved markedly. A new paper* on the Web-enabled ThermoML thermodynamics global data exchange standard notes that the...

Location, Location, Location and Physics

Choosing the right location is one of the most important and difficult decisions a business owner must make. You could rely on pavement-pounding research, intuition, and a good real estate agent, or you could turn to a new model that analyzes businesses in much the same way that physicists model interactions between spinning atoms.

Articles and Reviews

Recent molecular dynamics simulations showed electrophoresis of oil droplets in the absence of hydroxyl or any other ions, challenging the current theory of electrokinetic phenomena .

The World of Albert: There are days you would like to forget about

The last weeks Albert was busy setting up a new experiment and starting to do first measurements. Things have not exactly developed as he had originally anticipated. Read more on why the situation is like this.

Nano mechanics of the cell

How strong is an individual living cell? How is it moving and deforming? How can the cell fulfil its mechanical tasks? How is it communicating with its environment? The answer to such questions can be found in the interface between physics, cell biology and molecular biology – an internationally strongly growing research field. In this...
