For the first time ever, we've directly observed one of the most notorious (and weirdest) phenomena in quantum mechanics: Researchers create a "frozen" wave of light that interacts with matter as a stream of particles - demonstrating that light is both a series of waves AND a series of particles, at the same time.

"While this phenomenon shows the wave-like nature of light, it simultaneously demonstrated its particle aspect as well. As the electrons pass close to the standing wave of light, they 'hit' the light's particles, the photons. As mentioned above, this affects their speed, making them move faster or slower. This change in speed appears as an exchange of energy "packets" (quanta) between electrons and photons. The very occurrence of these energy packets shows that the light on the nanowire behaves as a particle."

Awesome birthday present by the Royal Society. "[W]hat better way to mark the 350th anniversary of the world’s first science journal than to make all Royal Society content freely available, to everyone?

Yes, you read that right… readers can access our complete collection online, without the need for a subscription, between now and the end of March.
[...]
Seminal research papers include accounts of Michael Faraday’s ground-breaking series of electrical experiments, Isaac Newton’s invention of the reflecting telescope and the first research paper published by Stephen Hawking.

Early papers contain fascinating descriptions of how Captain James Cook preserved the health of his crew aboard the HMS Endeavour and the astonishment of 18th century society at the performance of an eight year-old Mozart.

More recently, our topical publications have covered such issues as the discovery of the Higgs boson, the impact of climate change on vector-borne diseases, and the latest developments in bioinspiration.

So, what are you waiting for?"
