Latest Leptons Stories
Researchers from Durham University in the UK are looking towards the stars for a method to reduce costs associated with carbon capture and storage – a process that could potentially mitigate contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming and ocean acidification.
A pair of physicists hired to help lead particle and nuclear physics research in the new doctorate program at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology hold the promise of bringing the long-awaited
The neutrino plays a crucial role in nuclear processes such as fusion. But because of its small mass and neutral charge, it is very difficult to measure and study and as a result has been a source of frustration to physicists and astronomers.
International research including the UK and Japan has confirmed that subatomic particles called neutrinos have a new form of identity-shifting property.
Neutrinos are the most elusive particles having extremely weak interactions with all other particles.
Gregory D. Fleishman from the New Jersey Institute of Technology reports that his team has found a new way of studying anti-matter using radio observations of solar flares.
Researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have announced the capacity to consistently teleport information between two clouds of gas atoms, according to a report in the journal Nature Physics.
It is obvious from the data of the KASCADE-Grande experiment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) that the so-called “knee” of the cosmic rays, a bend in the energy spectrum at high energies, is located at different energies for light and heavy particles.
A new study out of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, in concert with their colleagues at CERN’s ALPHA experiment, has revealed new insights into one of the long standing questions about antimatter.
For decades scientists have wondered whether a mysterious form of matter – known simply as Dark Matter since it does not interact directly with light – makes up the majority of the “stuff” in the Universe.
Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
