Physics News and Research



Physics isn’t just about finding out how fast your spring-loaded trolley cart can be pushed from one side of the table to the other or about magnets (okay, I fib- there’s lot of news about magnets in this post :P ). I plan to show y’all what physics can really do! :)

Recently…
Nanoknots brings Lord Kelvin’s vortex theory to light. (Phys.Org)

US researchers find that ferromagnets could be made stronger with the addition of non-magnetic elements. (Phys.Org)

Molecular sunscreen could be a thing in the near future. (Phys.Org)

2D magnets have been found. (ScienceDaily) (This one’s a bit older news-wise, but still interesting ❤ )

Could this be the end of cracked phone screens? (ScienceDaily) (Also a bit older, but still relevant ❤ )

10 Earth-size planets have been found by the Kepler microscope. (ScienceDaily)

Is this the most accurate quantum thermometer? (ScienceDaily)

Until next time,

How do they work?
Currently Undertaking: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Supramolecular Photochemistry (things that don't bond but they do and glow pretty colours)

Previous Study: Bachelor of Science Advanced (Research) - Monash University, majoring in Mathematical Statistics and Chemistry

Don't PM me if it can be asked on the forums

Great thread, insanipi - looking forward to becoming slightly less ignorant. ;D
A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man. Yeet ahoy!

The Hubble Space Telescope has found a galaxy, that has a name like a password. (Phys.Org)

There may be extra dimensions in gravitational waves. (Phys.Org)

van der Waals interactions could be repulsive, as well as attractive forces. (Phys.Org)

A sweet spot of a wave (the surfing kind) has been found. (Phys.Org)

There are two phases of liquid water. (Phys.Org)

Hybrid electronics are the future. This could be due to spinning electrons. (ScienceDaily)

A new type of light detector has been found to detect light (both visible and UV) at high resolutions. (ScienceDaily)

Krypton nuclei (Kr-98 and Kr-100) have been found to be oddly shaped, via spectroscopy. (Physics World)

Two blackholes have been found to orbit each other. (Physics World)
