Revealed: Positronium's behavior in particle billiards
Collision physics can be like a game of billiards. Yet in the microscopic world, the outcome of the game is hard to predict. Fire a particle at a group of other particles, and they may scatter, combine or break apart, according to probability distributions governed by quantum mechanics. These processes can tell us about fundamental properties of matter and, if antimatter projectiles are used, also about matter-antimatter interactions.

Researchers find the organization of the human brain to be nearly ideal
Have you ever wondered why the human brain evolved the way it did?

A 'movie' of ultrafast rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second
Can you imagine how subnano-scale molecules make an ultrafast rotation at a hundred billion per second? Do the ultrafast rotating subnano-scale molecules show a wave-like nature rather than particle-like behavior? The Japanese research team led by Professor Yasuhiro Ohshima at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and Dr Kenta Mizuse at the Institute for Molecular Science, National Institutes of Natural Sciences, successfully took sequential "snapshots" of ultrafast unidirectionally rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second.

Research clarifies the physics of water repelling surfaces
Researchers have gained valuable insights into the behaviour of water on strongly hydrophobic (water-repelling) surfaces. Understanding this behaviour should help scientists develop new types of surfaces with applications ranging from textiles to surgical tools.

Faster detection of hidden objects by terahertz sensor
A new type of sensor, that is much faster than competing technologies used to detect and identify hidden objects, has been developed by scientists.

Fundamental observation of spin-controlled electrical conduction in metals
Ultrafast terahertz spectroscopy allows direct insight into the building block of modern magnetic memories.

Good quantum states and bad quantum states
It is impossible to obtain all information about a large quantum system consisting of hundreds or thousands of particles. A new technique allows to describe such systems in terms of 'continuous matrix product states.' With this approximation, the relevant information about a quantum system can be obtained by only a few measurements.
