An experiment that searched for violations of relativity with unprecedented precision may lead to new probes of phenomena beyond standard physics theories.
Theorists quantum mechanically describe an apparatus that would measure interactions among a single photon, an atom, and quantum-scale vibrations of a macroscopic object.
In a proposed scheme for a polymer coating, the surface could change its properties in less than a second.
