Stanford Physicists Xiao-Liang Qi and Leonardo Senatore won New Horizons in Physics Prizes for their outstanding contributions to fundamental physics. Qi’s work in condensed matter physics looked at physical properties of certain quantum phases of matter called topological states. His work on... more
Circumventing a no-go theorem established in 1977 by nonlinearly realized supersymmetry, the authors construct for the first time a pure (without additional fields) N=1 supergravity with positive cosmological constant. Besides the theoretical achievement, given the observational evidence for an... more
Tensor networks provide toy models which explicitly realize many puzzling features of AdS/CFT correspondence, and are sometimes treated as the lossy descriptions of the skeleton (in the AdS scale) of the space geometry along with the low energy physics attached on. more

Takaaki Kajita and Arthur McDonald led two teams which made key observations of the particles inside big underground instruments in Japan and Canada. They were named on Tuesday morning at a news conference in Stockholm, Sweden. Goran Hansson, secretary general of the Royal Swedish Academy of... more
Ground states of quantum matter can often be distinguished by their zero temperature electrical properties.  This way, superconductors, metals and insulators have zero, finite, and infinite resistance respectively, at T=0.  In two dimensions, it is widely believed that only superconductors,... more
