The hourglass like energy-momentum relation in a Weyl material

In Dr. Binghai Yan’s research, novel materials pave the way to new discoveries in physics

black hole

Why do we not see midsized black holes in the Universe? 

(l-r) Prof. Gershon Kurizki and Ephraim Shahmoon

An idea for trapping virtual photons is anything but empty

A small black hole gains mass: Dense cold gas (green) flows toward the center of a stellar cluster (red cross in blue circle) with stars (yellow); the erratic path of the black hole through the gas (black line) is randomized by the surrounding stars

A new model shows how early black holes could have grown to over a billion solar masses
