Ultra-Pure Matter Created at Purdue[scienceblog.com]Jul 28, 2011
 
    Researchers at Purdue University in Indiana have created a material called gallium arsenide that is used to observe previously unseen states of matter. These states are where electrons no longer obey the laws of single-particle physics, but are governed by their mutual interaction.

Higgs Getting Backed Into A Corner[physicsworld.com]Jul 25, 2011
 
    The areas where the "God Particle" Higgs boson can potentially hide are becoming fewer and fewer, ultimately leading closer to the discovery (or non-discovery) of the particle.

Laser Makes Positronium From Silicon[physicsworld.com]Jul 25, 2011
 
    Positronium is an unstable system consisting of an electron and its anti-particle, a positron, bound together into what's called an exotic atom. Physicists in the US have shown that it can be produced by firing a laser beam onto a silicon surface.

Breaking Laws Of Physics[scienceblog.com]Jul 20, 2011
 
    Scientists at the University of Bristol in the UK have observed a major violation in a law of physics that has been upheld for nearly 150 years. Using a metal known as purple bronze, the researchers found that it breaks the Wiedemann-Franz Law.

NIST Proposes Constant Changes[scienceblog.com]Jul 20, 2011
 
    Note: "Constant" in the title is a noun, not an adjective.

Every four years the scientists that comprise the National Institute of Standards and Technology convene and discuss the new values for known universal constants. Sometimes it's merely a refinement, other times it's an entirely new definition.

Light Mediums That Cause No Phase Shift[physicsworld.com]Jul 18, 2011
 
    As electromagnetic waves pass through mediums, their oscillations will invariably shift causing discrepancies in frequencies as they are detected that cause losses in the data sent. Researchers at Columbia University in New York have found a medium that can avoid this issue.

The Universe Is Not a Holodeck[wired.com]Jul 05, 2011
 
    An experiment conducted last year had concluded that, based on pixelation observed at some of the absolute tiniest levels, there was a chance that our entire universe was a hologram. New measurements and interpretations of that result have determined that the quantum fuzziness does not, in fact, exist.
