In a new study of axion motion, researchers propose a scenario known as “kinetic misalignment” that greatly strengthens the case for axion/dark matter equivalence. The novel concept answers key questions related to the origins of dark matter and provides new avenues for ongoing detection efforts...
Time crystals are hypothetical structures that pulse without requiring any energy—like a ticking clock that never needs winding. The pattern repeats in time in much the same way that the atoms of a crystal repeat in space. The idea was so challenging...
In this month's "Quantized Column," Quanta Magazine 's series in which top researchers explore the process of discovery, Frank Wilczek , Professor (1989–2000) and Member (1977–78) in the School of Natural Sciences and Nobel Laureate in Physics (2004), investigates and describes a new class...
Over 20 years ago, Frank Wilczek asked Richard Feynman one of the most disturbing questions in physics: Why doesn't empty space weigh anything?
