Team of Physicists in CRANN in major breakthrough on properties of empty space

Research published in ‘Nature Physics’ shows that Irish scientists have captured magnetism from empty space

Theoretical physicists have long believed that empty space is not a formless void. It is seething with ‘zero-point’ energy, the quantum reside of all electromagnetic waves.  Nobody has ever managed to find a way to harvest this limitless store of energy, and the direct evidence for its existence relies on a few very delicate landmark experiments. Now, a team of scientists working in Trinity College Dublin’s Centre for Research on Advanced Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN) have discovered a new and unexpected manifestation of this elusive energy.
