The complete magnetic properties of the prototype molecular magnet Mn12 have been modeled, for the first time, by an international team of researchers. The calculations will be crucial for developing real-world devices from the material, as well as to study fundamental nanoscale...

In the treatment of certain cancers, proton therapy continues to be an attractive alternative to photon therapy. However, it cannot reach its full clinical potential due to uncertainties in the X-ray CT-derived proton stopping powers used to calculate treatment dose. Proton...

Researchers have published a theoretical model in which the universe contracts and then bounces rather than coming into being in a singular big bang. The authors claim that their model explains recent data from BICEP2 and Planck experiments better than other theories. Read...

For a quarter of a century, physicists have faced a paradox regarding the net spin of protons and neutrons – the spin of their constituent quarks accounts for only a small fraction of their overall spin. Now, new research carried out by physicists in Argentina and...

Score one for boron. For the first time, a version of the famous soccer ball-shaped buckyball has been created from boron. Discovered in 1985, buckyballs are made from 60 carbon atoms linked together to form hollow spheres. The molecular cages are very stable and can withstand...

Researchers have produced a material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the "super black" coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times...
