Model-independent measurement of dark matter mass could lead to future discoveries
It's elemental: Accurate analysis of Earth's core with molecular dynamics simulation
Proposed gamma-ray laser could emit 'nuclear light'
Galactic nuclei offer some indication of axionlike particles
Nuclear spins control current in plastic LED: Step toward quantum computing, spintronic memory, better displays
University of Utah physicists read the subatomic "spins" in the centers or nuclei of hydrogen isotopes, and used the data to control current that powered light in a cheap, plastic LED – at room temperature ...
Evidence for a new nuclear 'magic number'
Researchers have come one step closer to understanding unstable atomic nuclei. A team of researchers from RIKEN, the University of Tokyo and other institutions in Japan and Italy has provided evidence for ...
Research team proposes lumpy crust of X-ray pulsars responsible for arrest of spin slowing
Movement of pyrrole molecules defy 'classical' physics
(Phys.org) —New research shows that movement of the ring-like molecule pyrrole over a metal surface runs counter to the centuries-old laws of 'classical' physics that govern our everyday world.
Most distant blazar is a high-energy astrophysics puzzle
(Phys.org) —Blazars are the brightest of active galactic nuclei, and many emit very high-energy gamma rays. New observations of the blazar known as PKS 1424+240 show that it is the most distant known source ...
Super-CDMS researchers report possible evidence of WIMPs
Long predicted atomic collapse state observed in graphene: Researchers recreate elusive phenomenon with artificial nucle
The first experimental observation of a quantum mechanical phenomenon that was predicted nearly 70 years ago holds important implications for the future of graphene-based electronic devices. Working with ...
Researchers stretch C-O bond to record length
X-ray 'echoes' map a supermassive black hole's environs
(Phys.org) -- An international team of astronomers using data from the European Space Agency's (ESA) XMM-Newton satellite has identified a long-sought X-ray "echo" that promises a new way to probe supersized ...
Where do the highest-energy cosmic rays come from? Not from gamma-ray bursts, says IceCube study
The IceCube neutrino telescope encompasses a cubic kilometer of clear Antarctic ice under the South Pole, a volume seeded with an array of 5,160 sensitive digital optical modules (DOMs) that precisely track ...
