A group of scientists led by researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have for the first time sent a message using a beam of neutrinos – nearly massless particles that travel at almost the speed of light.
An international team of physicists collaborating on a neutrino experiment that began six years ago released their first results on Thursday, and they report that for the first time they have witnessed an elusive process in which one type of these subatomic particles transforms into another.
An international particle physics collaboration today announced its first results toward answering a longstanding question – how the elusive particles called neutrinos can appear to vanish as they travel through space.
Using a new ultrafast camera, researchers have recorded the first real-time image of two atoms vibrating in a molecule.
How long does it take an electron to form a photon?
Sometimes bigger isn't better.
Physicists at the University of New South Wales have observed a new kind of interaction that can arise between electrons in a single-atom silicon transistor.
New research adds doubt that a prominent European astrophysics experiment may have found evidence of dark matter.
Italian scientists who had seemingly found further evidence that neutrino particles were in fact traveling faster than the speed of light have been dealt a major blow by another team that claims the evidence must be flawed.
Scientists who believed to have found in September that certain neutrinos travel faster than light have ruled out a potential source of error in their measurements after completing a second round of tests.
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...
