Syracuse University Plays Key Role In Search For Elusive Dark Matter

By Rob Enslin, Syracuse University Physicist Richard Schnee hopes to find traces of dark matter by studying particles with low masses and interaction rates, some of which have never been probed before. The ongoing search for invisible dark...

Dark Matter Clues From The Center Of Our Galaxy
2014-04-03 13:57:46

[ Watch the Video: Fermi Data Hints At New Dark Matter Clues ] Francis Reddym, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center A new study of gamma-ray light from the center of our galaxy makes the strongest case to date that some of this emission may arise from dark matter, an unknown substance making up most of the material universe. Using publicly available data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, independent scientists at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), the...

A 3D Acoustic Cloak That Hides Objects From Sound
2014-03-12 12:14:17

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated the world’s first three-dimensional acoustic cloaking device. The scientists reported in the journal Nature Materials that they have created a new device that reroutes sound waves to create the impression that the cloak and whatever it covers is not there. This technology could one day be used by the US Navy as a way to avoid sonar detection. According to the researchers, the acoustic...

Dark Matter Results From LUX Confirmed After Recalibration - WIMPs Still Not Detected
2014-02-21 08:47:17

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Dark matter research, like all experiments involving particle and astrophysical detections, relies on sorting out the desired events (the source events) from the noise (the background events). Since the interactions occur at a quantum level, the statistical process of sorting through the data is laborious, but also, more importantly, relies on your ability to calibrate and understand the instrument. Back in October the Large...

With the emergence of metamaterials and transformation optics in the past few years, invisibility has become a scientific possibility that has attracted sustainable research interest. Recently, a review paper, entitled "Invisibility cloak from forward design to inverse design", published in SCIENCE CHINA Information Sciences, 2013, Vol. 56, reviewed design methodologies and experimental developments of the invisibility cloak from a practical perspective. The recent transition from a forward...

Pixidis researcher Tom Whitney of Minneapolis has achieved the Holy Grail quest of modern physical science: the discovery of Einstein's famed unified field equation. Sought by thousands of scientists around the world, this equation reveals the ultimate blueprint running the universe. Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 03, 2014 The unified field equation theorized to exist by Einstein has been discovered—uniting hundreds of years of multidisciplinary science in a single, historic fell...

Battery-Powered Cloaking Device In The Works At U Texas
2013-12-19 08:09:17

Gerard LeBlond for redorbit.com - Your Universe Online The first battery-powered cloaking device is being designed by researchers at the University of Texas. The use of an external source of power will greatly expand its bandwidth of operation. Andrea Alu is the associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Cockrell School of Engineering in Austin, Texas. He and his team have proposed the design of a cloaking device (active cloak) powered by a...

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In my 'Introduction to Astronomy' course, I am often faced with a challenge: Many of the theoretical models that we have created to explain the Universe around us are quite difficult to visualize. This is sometimes particularly difficult for those not studying in a scientific field, but I even find myself struggling under the weight of mathematical constructs where the connection to reality is opaque at best. Humans, in...

Lead Ingots From Shipwrecks Being Used To Hunt For Dark Matter
2013-12-02 08:18:12

Gerard LeBlond for redorbit.com - Your Universe Online A Roman vessel carrying ingots of lead, which was removed from the Sierra of Cartagena, sank more than two thousand years ago off the coast of Sardinia. Now, more than a hundred of these lead bricks have been used to build the ‘Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events’ (CUORE), an advanced detector of almost weightless subatomic particles (neutrinos) and is located at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy....

Quest For ‘Invisibility Cloak’ Remains Elusive, It So Appears
2013-11-12 07:43:18

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Limitations in current cloaking technology allow objects to be temporarily concealed at only narrow wavelengths of light or microwaves, while many newer designs actually make things more visible, experts at the University of Texas acknowledged on Monday. Current cloaking devices, which are made of a variety of materials such as planes of glass, work by bending light around objects to make them temporarily invisible. Scientists...

Physics is the scientific study of matter and its motion through space/time and its derivitives, including energy and force. It is generally the analysis of nature and is conducted to help us understand how the universe behaves. Physics comes from the Greek word physis, meaning "nature". It is among the oldest academic disciplines, and perhaps the oldest pertaining to astronomy. Physics has been considered synonymous with philosophy, chemistry, mathematics, and biology for more than 2000...

String Theory -- A string theory is a physical model whose fundamental building blocks are extended objects (strings, membranes and higher-dimensional objects) rather than points. String theories are able to avoid problems, such as infinite energy density, associated with the presence of mathematical points in a physical theory. The term 'string theory' properly refers to both the 26 dimensional bosonic string theories and to the 10 dimensional superstring theories discovered by...
