China breaks quantum physics record, transmits entangled photons over 1 200 km

For the first time, scientists have realized the satellite-based distribution of entangled photon pairs over a distance of 1 200 km (745 miles). The photon pairs were demonstrated to be still entangled after traveling long distances and Bell's inequality was...

New research shows builiding light objects is possible

A team of scientists including theoretical physicists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland, have discovered that a molecule with its own force can be formed from weightless light particles. This discovery has take

MESSENGER and STEREO measurements open new window into high-energy processes on the Sun

Understanding the sun from afar isn't easy. How do you figure out what powers solar flares – the intense bursts of radiation coming from the release of magnetic energy associated with sunspots – when you must rely on observing only the light and particle

Seeing light in a new light - Harvard-MIT researchers created new form of matter

Challenging the conventional wisdom about light researchers bind photons together to form molecules. As a result, a never before seen form of matter, one that was only theorized about, was created. Working with colleagues at the Harvard-MIT Center for
