Daya Bay neutrino experiment publishes a new result on its first search for a "sterile" neutrino
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.
Sir Arthur Evans first discovered the 4,000-year-old Palace of Minos on the island of Crete in 1900. The civilization that built this palace was set apart from later Bronze Age Greeks by the artifacts the British archaeologist recovered, leading him to suggest that they were refugees from Northern Egypt.
For the first time, a team of U.S. researchers have successfully used a beam of neutrinos--extremely low mass particles that can travel at the speed of light--to transmit a message through an obstacle.
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.
They were always mysterious.
Scientists of the MINOS experiment at the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced today (June 24) the results from a search for a rare phenomenon, the transformation of muon neutrinos into electron neutrinos.
LSU Department of Physics Professors Thomas Kutter and Martin Tzanov, and Professor Emeritus William Metcalf, along with graduate and undergraduate students, have been working for several years on an experiment in Japan called T2K, or Tokai to Kamioka Long Baseline Neutrino Oscillation Experiment, which studies the most elusive of fundamental subatomic particles â€“ the neutrino.
Scientists have made their most accurate measurement yet of the "ghost particles" known as neutrinos.
Europe is, by regulation, one of the world’s seven continents. Consisting of the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, Europe is generally divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Black and Caspian Seas, and the waterways that connect the Black and Aegean Seas. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean towards the north, Atlantic Ocean to the west, Mediterranean Sea to the south, and the Black Sea and connected waterways to the southeast....
