The Higgs boson and superconductivity

New form of spectroscopy provides insights for the development of resistance-free current transport at ambient temperature

20-May-2020

Without the Higgs mechanism, particles would have no mass. The Higgs boson, which was discovered in 2012, is therefore also referred to as the “God particle”. It arises as an oscillating excitation of the Higgs field, which penetrates the world. Superconductivity displays similar properties. ...

An ultrafast microscope for the quantum world

28-Jan-2020

Processes taking place inside tiny electronic components or in molecules can now be filmed at a resolution of a few hundred attoseconds and down to the individual atom. The operation of components for future computers can now be filmed in HD quality, so to speak. Manish Garg and Klaus Kern, ...

Sensor the size of a nitrogen atom investigates hard drives

04-Jan-2018

Integrated circuitry is becoming increasingly complex. These days a Pentium processor contains some 30 million transistors. And the magnetic structures found in hard drives measure just 10 to 20 nanometers across – less than a flu virus at 80 to 120 nanometers in diameter. Dimensions are rapidly ...

Synthesis of structurally pure carbon nanotubes using molecular seeds

08-Aug-2014

For the first time, researchers at Empa and the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research have succeeded in "growing" single-wall carbon nanotubes (CNT) with a single predefined structure - and hence with identical electronic properties. And here is how they pulled it off: the CNTs "assembled ...

New citation indicators needed to measure research performance

14-Feb-2013

How do you compare the impact of a researcher in chemistry or physics with a molecular biologist who may be working on similar projects? Two experts support the use of citation indicators that are based on percentiles, a statistical parameter that allows for comparisons with a carefully defined ...

Golden Nano-Dumbbells

Selective binding of gold nanoparticles to the ends of rod-shaped viruses

10-Apr-2007

Nanotechnology appears to be an unstoppable trend and it requires defined nanoscale building blocks and patterns. "A typical difficulty with the synthesis of nanostructures is the modification of nanoscale objects at specific positions" says Alexander Bittner, whose work with a team from the Max ...

2006 Agilent Technologies Europhysics Prize awarded for theory that explains properties of materials

10-Mar-2006

Agilent Technologies Inc. today announced that the European Physical Society (EPS) has awarded the 2006 Agilent Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Condensed Matter Physics to four scientists for their development and application of the Dynamical Mean Field Theory, which explains ...
