Premio Nobel de Física 2016 para estudios sobre la materia en el mundo cuántico

El Premio Nobel de Física 2016 ha sido concedido, ex aequo, a David J. Thouless, por un lado, y a F. Duncan Haldane M. y J. Michael Kosterlitz, por otra, por revelar los "secretos exóticos de la materia". En el fallo se destaca que el galardón se les concede "por los descubrimientos teóricos de las transiciones de fase topológica y fases topológicas de la materia". Las transiciones de fase suceden cuando la materia cambia de fase, como cuando el hielo se derrite y se convierte en agua o el agua se evapora.


  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
