A Swedish social scientist who has been studying the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory for nearly a decade says it represents an ideal case study for how a national lab transforms from a primary ...
Studies find airplane crews at high altitude are exposed to potentially harmful levels of radiation from cosmic rays.
Plants and bacteria make use of sunlight with remarkably high efficiency: nine out of ten absorbed light particles are being put to use in an ordinary bacterium. For years, it has been a pressing question of modern research ...
Radioactive particles can be detected deeper in the ground, thanks to the application of artificial intelligence technology developed by University of Stirling researchers.
Quarks and antiquarks are the teeny, tiny building blocks with which all matter is built, binding together to form protons and neutrons in a process explained by quantum chromodynamics (QCD).
As we walk along a forest path, the soil beneath our feet seems like a uniform substance. However, it is an intricate network of soil particles, pores, minerals, soil microbes, and more. It is awash in variety.
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories are working to lower the cost of solar energy systems and improve efficiencies in a big way, thanks to a system of small particles.
From targeted drug delivery to the self-assembly of nano robots, new research by Northumbria University, Newcastle, is using super-sized atoms to reveal the behaviour of liquids in microscopic channels.
We can't see them, but the air that we breathe contains a wealth of biological particles which could damage our health.
