Latest Neutrinos Stories
Astronomers working with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica have announced that they have, for the first time, observed 28 very high-energy particle events, leading them to conclude that "the era of neutrino astronomy has begun.”
A pair of physicists hired to help lead particle and nuclear physics research in the new doctorate program at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology hold the promise of bringing the long-awaited
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
