laws of physics

Researchers characterize the spin couplings in the prototypical single-molecule magnet Mn 1 2 using an advanced neutron scattering technique. Read More

Synopsis: Wind Gusts Could Explain Gamma-Ray Flares

A mysterious gamma-ray emission from the Crab Nebula—a giant interstellar cloud of gas—may be due to fluctuations in the wind blown out from the pulsar in the nebula’s center. Read More

Viewpoint: 3D Imaging of Dislocations

A combination of imaging techniques provides an unprecedented 3D view of a network of crystal defects known as dislocations. Read More

Focus: Video—Physics of Oil Recovery

Experiments mimicking a common oil drilling technique, in which fluid is forced into an oil-filled, porous medium, have uncovered four different flow patterns. Read More

Synopsis: Relativity Survives Scrutiny, Again

Two independent studies show no evidence that a fundamental symmetry in relativity, known as Lorentz invariance, breaks down. Read More

Synopsis: Bloch Theory Scratches the Surfaces

Bloch’s famous theory describing the electron states in a crystalline solid has been recast to apply to surface states as well. Read More

Synopsis: New Constraints on Axion-Gluon Interaction Strength

An analysis of spin-precession data of atoms and neutrons sets some of the tightest limits to date on the strength of interactions between axions and gluons or nucleons. Read More

Viewpoint: Scattering Atoms Catch the d Wave

d-wave interactions like those thought to underlie unconventional superconductivity have been implemented in a cold-atom gas. Read More

Focus: Field-Free Spin Patterns

A vortex-like magnetic spin structure inside a small disk of material is stable without an external magnetic field and might be useful for information storage or processing. Read More
