Anisotropic radio-wave scattering in the solar corona

Solar radio emission is produced in the turbulent medium of the solar atmosphere, and its observed properties (source position, size, time profile, polarization, etc.) are significantly affected by the propagation of the ...

New measurement yields smaller proton radius

Using the first new method in half a century for measuring the size of the proton via electron scattering, the PRad collaboration has produced a new value for the proton's radius in an experiment conducted at the Department ...

A superconductor that 'remembers' its electronic charge arrangement

In the field of superconductivity—the ability of a material to conduct electricity with virtually zero resistance—the so-called high-temperature superconductors (HTSCs) are possible candidates for a new generation of ...

New imaging platform examines mechanisms behind coral bleaching

As coral reefs deteriorate in the face of climate change, an interdisciplinary Northwestern Engineering research team has developed an innovative method to image coral nanoscale structures and quantify pigment absorption ...

Next-generation anvils for the Paris-Edinburgh cell

One of the goals of Task 7.3 of SINE2020's Sample Environment work package is to develop better high-pressure cells for neutron scattering. A cell commonly used to put a sample under high pressure is the Paris-Edinburgh (PE) ...
