A new technique could improve the precision of atomic clocks and of quantum sensors for detecting dark matter or gravitational waves.
“In astrophysics, we have only this one universe which we can observe,” the physics professor says. “With a computer, we can create different universes, which we can check.”
APS names Bourouiba, Grego, Liu, Peacock, Winslow, and Yildiz as MIT’s newest fellows for their contributions to physics.
Radioactive molecules are sensitive to subtle nuclear phenomena and might help physicists probe the violation of the most fundamental symmetries of nature.
Certain ultralight bosons would be expected to put the brakes on black holes, but new results show no such slowdown.
New image of M87 reveals how it looks in polarized light.
Findings suggest the first galaxies in the universe were more massive than previously thought.
Results significantly narrow the range of possible places to find the hypothetical dark matter particles.
Associate professor of physics shares the honor with colleague Phillip Mocz for their novel dark matter research.
The design, which uses entangled atoms, could help scientists detect dark matter and study gravity’s effect on time.
