For how much astronomers know about black holes -- it's a lot, trust me -- it's a bit of a shock that mankind has never actually seen one. Everything science knows about black holes is based on inference rather than actually witnessing one with our own eyes (electronic or otherwise), but that may be about to change.The Event Horizon Telescope project plans to reveal the first-ever images of a black hole, and the international group of researchers working on the project have something very big to show the world this week. We may be just days away from seeing a black hole for the first time ever.As you might have guessed, this is a pretty big deal. The Event Horizon researchers are going all-out with the announcement, which is scheduled for this Wednesday, and they'll be holding press conferences in multiple languages

14:10 Photonics.comResearchers Pinpoint Origin of Photons in Gamma-Ray Bursts

Scientists from the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research and their collaborators have shown that the photons emitted by long gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) originate in the photosphere, that is, in the visible portion of the relativistic jet that is emitted by exploding stars. Using computer simulations performed on supercomputers, the group focused on the so-called photospheric emission model, a leading model for the emission mechanism of GRBs. This model postulates that the photons visible on Earth are emitted from the photosphere of the relativistic jet. As the jet expands, it becomes easier for photons to escape from it, since there are fewer objects available to scatter the light. Thus, the “critical density” — that is, the place where it becomes possible for the photons to escape — moves downward through the jet to material that was originally at higher densities. The

Sunshine that hits your face consists mostly of the same photons that traveled millions of miles from the sun.But magnetic fields contain things called skyrmions that are different from electrons and photons; a skyrmion is a knot of magnetic field lines looping around each other. As it drifts from one spot to the next, a skyrmion makes itself anew out of the magnetic field lines that are already there.

21:30 Yahoo ScienceWe’re probably about to see the first-ever photograph of a black hole

Black holes are so strange that they're kind of hard to wrap your brain around. They're super-dense objects with gravitational pull so strong that nothing can escape them and, while we know they exist, astronomers have never actually photographed one. Weird, right?When it comes to spotting a black hole the distance is really what is holding humanity back. The nearest black hole to Earth is thought to be situated at the center of our Milky Way galaxy, but that's a long, long stretch for modern telescope technology. Now, researchers using a novel planet-wide imaging technique designed specifically to spot a black hole are planning to make a major announcement, and there's really only one thing it could be.The announcement, which we believe will be the release of the first-ever images of an actual black hole, is an

An international team of researchers has put a theory speculated by the late Stephen Hawking to its most rigorous test to date, and their results have ruled out the possibility that primordial black holes smaller than a tenth of a millimeter make up most of dark matter.

Fumio Koyama, of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, has been chosen by The Optical Society (OSA) as the recipient of its 2019 Nick Holonyak Jr. Award for his seminal contributions to vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) photonics and integration. OSA President Ursula Gibson said Koyama’s pioneering work with VCSEL technology opened a door to a new range of optical devices.                                                                                                                         Fumio Koyama.

16:50 Yahoo SciencePhysicists Just Detected a Very Odd Particle That Isn t a Particle at All

It sounds like the start of a very bad physics riddle: I'm a particle that really isn't; I vanish before I can even be detected, yet can be seen. I break your understanding of physics but don't overhaul your knowledge. Who am I?It's an odderon, a particle that's even more odd than its name suggests, and it may have recently been detected at the Large Hadron Collider, the most powerful atom smasher, where particles are zipped at near light speed around a 17-mile-long (27 kilometers) ring near Geneva in Switzerland. It's just complicatedFirst off, the odderon is not really a particle. What we think of as particles are usually very stable: electrons, protons, quarks, neutrinos and so on. You can hold a bunch of them in your hand and carry them around with you. Heck, your hand is literally made of them. And your hand

15:17 Photonics.com3D Cavity Cooling of Particles Could Be Used to Study Quantum Effects

A new method for cooling levitated nanoparticles using optical tweezers, discovered by researchers at the University of Vienna, the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), could advance scientists’ ability to observe the quantum effects on nanoparticles. Previous attempts to obtain full control over particle motion — a necessary prerequisite to observing quantum effects — have also used optical tweezers, but these methods have been limited by laser noise and large required laser intensities. “Our new cooling scheme is directly borrowed from the atomic physics community, where similar challenges for quantum control exist,” said researcher Uros Delic. The researchers drew from early works by Innsbruck physicist Helmut Ritsch and U.S. physicists Vladan Vuletic and Steve Chu, who realized that it is sufficient to use the light that is

15:01 Phys.orgBehavior of 'trapped' electrons in a one-dimensional world observed in the lab

A team of physicists at the University of Cologne has, for the first time, seen a particularly exotic behaviour of electrons on an atomic scale. Electrons normally move almost freely through three-dimensional space. However, when they are forced to move in only one dimension, i.e., in a chain of atoms, they begin to act strangely. The Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid theory predicted this decades ago. In the lab, however, this phenomenon has so far only been shown indirectly.
