Searches for Earth-like exoplanets using the periodic Doppler shift of stellar absorption lines require 10 cm/s precision in the measurement of stellar radial velocity (RV) over timescales of years. Current techniques have led to the discovery of short-period exoplanets that induce RV wobbles as small as...

The rapid squirt of a proteinaceous slime jet endows velvet worms (Onychophora) with a unique mechanism for defence from predators and for capturing prey by entangling them in a disordered web that immobilizes their target. However, to date, neither qualitative nor quantitative descriptions have been provided for this unique adaptation.

Full control over the dynamics of interacting, indistinguishable quantum particles is an important prerequisite for the experimental study of strongly correlated quantum matter and the implementation of high-fidelity quantum information processing...


Figure 1
The results of the joint analysis of BICEP2/Keck Array and Planck Collaborations have been published in the latest issue of Physical Review Letter. BICEP2 and Keck Array have observed the same approximately 400 deg2...


A search for new physics in production of a pair of Higgs bosons finds a modest excess of events, 2.4 standard deviations above the background-only hypothesis...


Figure 1
Whether the non-Fermi-liquid behavior of fermionic systems, developing in the proximity of a quantum critical point, is stable or not toward the formation of Cooper pairs is a challenging open question in the physics of strongly correlated systems...


Figure 2
In a Letter in Nature Materials, Prof. L. Mahadevan and colleagues from Brandeis University, Florida Atlantic University, and Universiteit Leiden, describe directly measuring the sliding forces between two bundled F-actin filaments...
