On a quest to discover new states of matter, a team of Princeton University scientists has found that electrons on the surface of specific materials act like miniature superheroes, relentlessly dodging the cliff-like obstacles of imperfect microsurfaces, sometimes moving straight through barriers.
An international team measures the charge radius of the hydrogen nucleus and stumbles across some mysteries of physics.
Neutrinos are likely half as massive as previous estimates suggested.
Scientists have made their most accurate measurement yet of the "ghost particles" known as neutrinos.
An international team including scientists from Princeton University has detected subatomic particles deep within the Earth's interior.
Scientists of the MINOS experiment at the Department of Energyâ€™s Fermi National Accelerator laboratory today (June 14) announced the worldâ€™s most precise measurement to date of the parameters that govern antineutrino oscillations, the back-and-forth transformations of antineutrinos from one type to another.
Finding presents a powerful new tool for nanoscale science experiments.
In the paper the authors from the Key Laboratory of Particle Astrophysics, Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing proposed a new model trying to explain the knee at cosmic ray spectra.
Findings reveal characteristics of â€œhidden orderâ€ in unusual uranium compound and demonstrate new method for investigating long-standing physics problems.
On Monday, scientists in Europe said they have solved the case of the missing neutrinos, one of the enduring mysteries in the subatomic universe of particle physics.
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...
