Latest Neutrinos Stories
Streaming across the Universe are high-energy charged particles, known as cosmic rays. For more than their origins have remained a mystery.
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.
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.
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."
The first block of what will be the largest, most advanced neutrino experiment in North America is now being installed in Minnesota.
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.
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
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 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 act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
