Latest Leptons Stories
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.
In a new study recently published in the journal Science, a research team from Amherst College and The University of Texas at Austin has described a new technique that might one day reveal the composition and characteristics of the deep Earth in never before seen detail.
For purposes of their research, the scientists irradiated two separate layered systems with ultrashort laser pulses on the order of just one hundred femtoseconds (10-15 s).
Charged particle accelerators have become crucially important to modern day life, be it in health care for cancer treatment or for answering important fundamental scientific questions like the existence of the HIGGS boson, the so called 'God particle'.
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...
