Dust collected from a speeding asteroid analyzed with massive accelerator
Argonne, UChicago scientists among the first to study asteroid fragments from Hayabusa2 spacecraft It's not uncommon for scientists to bring interesting objects thousands of miles to Argonne National Laboratory for study. But it's fair to say that the latest of these to land at the laboratory came from much, much farther away.

Extending LIGO’s Reach Into the Cosmos
Since LIGO's groundbreaking detection , in 2015, of gravitational waves produced by a pair of colliding black holes, the observatory, together with its European partner facility Virgo, has detected dozens of similar cosmic rumblings that send ripples through space and time. In the future, as more and more upgrades are made to the National Science Foundation-funded LIGO observatories -one in Hanford, Washington, and the other in Livingston, Louisiana-the facilities are expected to detect increasingly large numbers of these extreme cosmic events.

Protein distancing
Protein distancing
Researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI are the first to have joined two proteins together by means of a free-standing, rigid link. The structural element holds the two protein molecules together at a defined distance and angle, much the way a barbell handle connects two weights. This type of linkage could help, for example, to develop so-called virus-like particles for vaccines.

Will twisted superconducting flakes make better components for quantum computers?
Researchers find a way to make single-crystal flake devices that are so thin and defect-free, they might outperform existing components in quantum computers. Last updated on Friday 1 October 2021 Researchers at the University of Bath have found a way to make 'single-crystal flake' devices that are so thin and free of defects, they have the potential to outperform components used today in quantum computer circuits.

’Back to basics’ approach helps unravel new phase of matter | University of Cambridge
A new phase of matter, thought to be understandable only using quantum physics, can be studied with far simpler classical methods. We thought time crystals were fundamentally quantum phenomena, but it turns out a simpler classical approach let us learn more about them Andrea Pizzi Researchers from the used computer modelling to study potential new phases of matter known as prethermal discrete time crystals (DTCs).

Topological vertical cavity laser arrays
Topological vertical cavity laser arrays
09/24/2021 Israeli and German researchers have developed a way to force an array of vertical cavity lasers to act together as a single laser - a highly effective laser network the size of a grain of sand. The findings are presented in a new joint research paper published online by the prestigious journal Science on Friday, September 24.

Creating order by mechanical deformation in dense active matter
Researchers at Göttingen University use computer simulation to investigate models of living systems Living or biological systems cannot be easily understood using the standard laws of physics, such as thermodynamics, as scientists would for gases, liquids or solids. Living systems are active, demonstrating fascinating properties such as adapting to their environment or repairing themselves.

Simplifying quantum systems
Simplifying quantum systems
If only it were less prone to error, quantum physics might already be giving us instant solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. researchers are therefore working to develop systems that are more robust. In crude terms, our digitally driven information society is based on a simple binary opposition: 0 or 1.

The whole is the truth
Quantum physics opens our eyes to the holistic nature of reality. Nothing can be observed in isolation - and everything is governed by chance. We generally assume that the objects around us exist independently of us and of other objects. We can observe a glass as a well-defined object and investigate its chemical or physical properties in the lab.

Computer scientists take on the quantum challenge
Computer scientists take on the quantum challenge
For a long time, the development of quantum computers was concerned with theoretical and hardware aspects. But as the focus shifts towards programming, software and security issues, the classical computer sciences are coming back into play. Physicists had long nurtured the ambition to build a quantum computer.

Part of the Universe’s missing matter found thanks to the MUSE instrument
Galaxies exchange matter with their external environment thanks to galactic winds. The MUSE instrument from the Very Large Telescope has, for the very first time, mapped the galactic wind that drive these exchanges between galaxies and nebulae. This observation led to the detection of some of the Universe's missing matter.
