Latest Radioactive decay Stories
Physicists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are one step closer to measuring the mass of the elusive neutrino, developing a new tabletop particle detector capable of identifying single electrons in a radioactive gas by trapping them in a magnetic bottle.
Thanks to one of the most sensitive neutrino detectors on Earth, physicists have for the first time confirmed the existence of low-energy neutrinos created by the “keystone” proton-proton fusion process taking place in the core of the sun.
Neutrinos are tiny, neutral elementary particles that, contrary to the standard model of physics, have been proven to have mass. One possible explanation for this mass could be that neutrinos are their own antiparticles, so-called Majorana particles.
Researchers have discovered that microscopic "bubbles" developed at Kansas State University are safe and effective storage lockers for harmful isotopes that emit ionizing radiation for treating tumors.
The HAWK is field gamma spectrometer based on high purity germanium technology.
The radioactive ocean plume created as a result of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster is expected to reach North America by next year, according to research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Deep-Sea Research 1.
Neutrinos are the most elusive particles having extremely weak interactions with all other particles.
Gregory D. Fleishman from the New Jersey Institute of Technology reports that his team has found a new way of studying anti-matter using radio observations of solar flares.
A team of international scientists has found the first ever direct evidence of pear-shaped atomic nuclei, a discovery that could shed light on some of the deepest mysteries of the universe.
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...
