Flavor Changing Neutrinos
2013-08-23 13:29:53

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.

Neutrinos are the most elusive particles having extremely weak interactions with all other particles.

Dark Matter Detector Gets Helping Hand From Livermore Team

Nearly a mile underground beneath the Black Hills of South Dakota, scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) are using a tank to make key contributions to a physics experiment that will look for one of nature's most elusive particles, "dark matter."

Neutrino Experiment Installation Underway
2012-09-07 07:20:12

The first block of what will be the largest, most advanced neutrino experiment in North America is now being installed in Minnesota.

Neutrinos Can Alter Exploding Star Physics

Within the heart of exploding stars, sparse halos of neutrinos exert a previously unrecognized influence on the physics of the explosion and may alter which elements can be forged by these violent events.

In Neutrino-less Double-beta Decay Search
2012-07-19 11:32:15

Pocar, Kumar and the team of 60 scientists using an instrument called the EXO-200 detector, succeeded in setting a new lower limit for the half-life of this ephemeral nuclear decay; though no one has yet seen it, important progress was made

CERN Confirms Neutrinos Not Faster Than Light
2012-06-11 06:29:34

Physicists on Friday concluded once and for all that neutrinos are definitely not faster than the speed of light, preserving Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity that was challenged by earlier experiments.

Physicists Make Closest Measurement Of Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay Yet
2012-06-05 03:43:51

Physicists searching for a hypothetical and rare process involving radioactive decay of atomic nuclei have gotten their most sensitive results to date, suggesting that these mysterious particles behave like other elementary particles at the quantum level.

The behavior of some of the most elusive particles in the known universe can be simulated using three atoms in a lab.

Word of the Day
  • Pertaining to the surface or end opposite to the mouth in a radiate animal.
The word 'abactinal' comes from a Greek root meaning 'ray' and a Latin prefix meaning 'away'.
