Researchers home in on extremely rare nuclear process

A hypothetical nuclear process known as neutrinoless double beta decay ought to be among the least likely events in the universe. Now the international EXO-200 collaboration, which includes researchers from the Department ...

Scientists report first results from neutrino mountain experiment

This week, an international team of physicists, including researchers at MIT, is reporting the first results from an underground experiment designed to answer one of physics' most fundamental questions: Why is our universe ...

CUORE experiment constrains neutrino properties

The neutrino is one of the least understood particles. One of the biggest open questions is whether it is its own antiparticle. If it is, it would help explain why there is more matter in the universe than antimatter. Scientists ...

Experiment provides deeper look into the nature of neutrinos

The first glimpse of data from the full array of a deeply chilled particle detector operating beneath a mountain in Italy sets the most precise limits yet on where scientists might find a theorized process to help explain ...
