Classical cryptography provides security based on unproven mathematical assumptions and depends on the technology available to an eavesdropper.
A bullet fired through a block of wood will slow down. In a similar way, ions are decelerated when they pass through a solid material: the thicker the material, the larger the energy loss will be.
On April 17th, Roy Glauber, who was awarded one half of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contribution to the quantum theory of optical coherence", visited USTC and gave a lecture "Two Hundred Years of Light Waves, One Hundred Years of Light Quanta" for the students on the next day.
Graphene, single-atom-thick sheets of pure carbon, is lighter than steel but many times stronger, with better electrical conductivity than copper.
Elemer Bernath was a physics teacher here in 1955 when he took three students - Bill Spencer, Jerry Schaffer, Bob Adair - to the first Colorado Science and Engineer Fair.
What is the universe made of? The ancient Greeks conceived of the "atom", the indivisible unit of matter.
The most effective way to tackle debilitating diseases is to punch them at the start and keep them from growing.
Researchers from Cornell University and Brookhaven National Laboratory have shown how to switch a particular transition metal oxide, a lanthanum nickelate , from a metal to an insulator by making the material less than a nanometer thick.
