The media wrote about the achievement of scientists working on the STAR detector at Brookhaven National Laboratory in the United States. They obtained evidence for two physical phenomena predicted over 80 years ago.
As Gazeta.ru writes with reference to the scientific journal Physical Review Letters, the researchers proved that it is possible to obtain matter directly from light, and that magnetism can bend polarized photons in a vacuum.
The authors of the scientific work reported that pairs of electrons and positrons can be created by colliding very energetic photons. Overall, this is a consequence of the famous equation E = mc ^ 2. Scientists converted energy into matter in one step.
Their second experiment showed that the path of light that travels through a magnetic field in a vacuum bends differently depending on the polarization.
