  1. Nobel prize for physics goes to trio who sliced up time with light
    Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L’Huillier figured out how to generate attosecond pulses of light, which last a billionth of a billionth of a second and can be used to make movies of electrons - a find that has won them the 2023 Nobel prize in physics
  2. Large Hadron Collider turned into world's biggest quantum experiment
    Physicists have used the famous particle smasher to investigate the strange phenomena of quantum entanglement at far higher energies than ever before
  3. Force that holds atoms together measured more precisely than ever
    We know less about the strength of the strong force than of any of the other fundamental forces of nature, but researchers at CERN have now made the most precise measurement of it ever
  4. Raisins and nuts dance in fizzy drinks and now we know why
    Dropping raisins, nuts or other small objects in a fizzy liquid makes them dance up and down for hours because they keep gaining and losing bubbles
  5. Inside ALPHA-g: The detector measuring gravity's effect on antimatter
    New research has shown that if you drop a piece of antimatter, it will fall down to the ground just like regular matter.  We visited CERN's antimatter factory to find out more
  6. Antimatter definitely doesn't fall up, physicists confirm
    In a blow for the hopes of antigravity machines, the first ever test of how antimatter responds to gravity confirms it falls down, not up
  7. Quantum engine could power devices with an ultracold atom cloud
    A quantum engine that works by toggling the properties of an ultracold atom cloud could one day be used to charge quantum batteries
  8. Squeezing loofah sponges creates enough electricity to power LEDs
    Sponges derived from luffa plants could act as tiny power sources for small devices, say researchers - but they may not supply enough energy to be practical
  9. Twisted lasers could let us send messages with gravitational waves
    Ripples in space-time called gravitational waves are normally associated with massive objects like black holes, but we could make our own using lasers – and perhaps even use them to communicate
  10. The world’s brightest X-ray machine has been turned on
    The LCLS-II X-ray laser is unprecedentedly bright, and will make it possible to record exactly what atoms and molecules do during photosynthesis and other chemical reactions
