Researchers Increase NMR/MRI Sensitivity Through Hyperpolarization Of Nuclei In Diamond
2013-06-06 15:09:01

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Today´s nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technologies, like quantum information processing and nuclear spintronic technologies, are based on an intrinsic quantum property of electrons and atomic nuclei called “spin.” Electrons and nuclei can act like tiny bar magnets with a spin that is assigned a directional state of either “up” or “down.” NMR/MRI signals depend upon a...

New Insights Into Big Bang From Keck Observatory
2013-06-06 13:09:02

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The big bang theory is the leading theory to explain the origin of the Universe. While challengers exist, no other well-developed theory has substantiated itself as a serious contender. But this does not mean that the big bang is without its problems. One issue that has plagued our origins story is the relative abundance of lithium isotopes Li-6 and Li-7 in the oldest observed stars. These atoms would have been...

Measuring All Light Since Big Bang May Provide Answers To Evolution Of Universe
2013-05-24 14:07:39

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers wrote in The Astrophysical Journal that they have made the best measurement of all the light in the universe since the Big Bang yet. Measuring the number and energy of each particle of light or photon since the Big Bang could provide secrets about the nature and evolution of the Universe, such as how similar or different ancient galaxies were compared to the galaxies today. The researchers made the most accurate...

Nuclear Fallout
2013-04-01 10:26:30

Nuclear fallout, or just simply fallout, known also as Black Rain, is the residual radioactive material that is propelled into the upper atmosphere after a nuclear black or a nuclear reaction that is conducted in an unshielded facility. It is so called because it "fall out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave have passed. It most commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash that is created when a nuclear weapon explodes, but such dust can also come from a damaged nuclear...

Fermium is a synthetic, radioactive metallic element. It has the symbol Fm and atomic number 100. It is an element in the actinide series. It is named after nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi. Fermium became the eighth transuranic (having an atomic number greater than 92) element discovered. It was first discovered in 1952 by a team of scientists led by Albert Ghiorso. They found fermium-255 in debris of the first hydrogen bomb explosion from Operation Ivy. Fermium-255 was created when...

Americium is a synthetic radioactive metallic element. The symbol for Americium is Am and the atomic number is 95. Americium is an actinide that was first isolated by Glenn T. Seaborg in 1944 while attacking plutonium with neutrons. It became the fourth transuranic (having an atomic number greater than 92) element to be discovered. It was named for the Americas. It is widely used in commercial smoke-detectors and different types of industrial gauges. Americium in its pure state has a...

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...
