For The First Time, Physicists Have Controlled The Interaction of Time Crystals

The existence of time crystals - a particularly fascinating state of matter - was only confirmed a few short years ago, but physicists have already made a pretty major breakthrough: they have induced and observed an interaction between two time crystals.

Groundbreaking experiment cools particle to the quantum limit

An experiment designed by Markus Aspelmeyer and his team of researchers at the University of Vienna has successfully cooled a nanoparticle to the quantum cooling limit, reaching the particle's ground state at a minimum temperature of twelve millionths of a Kelvin, through the precise use of an array of lasers to levitate the particle in a specially constructed cavity.

Researchers use color-changing fibers to test knot strength

In a groundbreaking study, researchers led by MIT's Vishal Patil have utilized fibers that change colors when placed under varying amounts of strain to test the strength and durability of various kinds of knots. While knots have been used by humans for millennia, little is known about the mathematical interactions between the various levels of strain utilized in different knots, which this study explored with great success.
