Entanglement on a Chip: Breakthrough Promises Secure Communications and Faster Computers

Researchers have developed the first microscopic component that is small enough to fit onto a standard silicon chip. The new design can generate a continuous supply of entangled photons. By tailoring the design of this resonator, the researchers were able to create a novel source of entangled photons that is

Astronomers discover a replica solar system

Scientists have located an ancient solar system, dating back to the dawn of the galaxy, which appears to be a miniature version of the inner planets in our own solar system

Gamma-ray telescope H.E.S.S. discovers three most extremely luminous gamma-ray sources in Milky Way’s satellite galaxy

Cosmic particle accelerators, mostly supernova remnants and pulsar wind nebulas, i.e. end products of massive stars, are sources of intensive high-energy gamma-rays. They accelerate charged particles to extremely high velocities. When these particles hit the gas or light that surrounds them

Cosmic radio burst caught red-handed

Lasting only milliseconds, the first such radio burst was discovered in 2007 by astronomers combing the Parkes data archive for unrelated objects. Six more bursts, apparently from outside our Galaxy, have now been found with the

Galactic ‘hailstorm’ in the early Universe

Astronomers have been able to peer back to the young Universe to determine how quasars – powered by supermassive black holes with the mass of a billion suns – form and shape the evolution of galaxies

Origin of long-standing space mystery revealed

The mystery was finally solved by studying data collected simultaneously by the European Space Agency’s Cluster and NASA’s IMAGE satellites on 15 September 2005. While the four Cluster satellites were located in the southern hemisphere magnetic lobe, IMAGE had a wide-field view of the

New paper explains methods that may lead to new insights about dark matter

A new paper, co-authored by University of Notre Dame astrophysicist Joseph Bramante, discusses how detecting imploding pulsars may lead to insights about the properties of dark matter
