Hunting for elusive tetraneutrons with thermal fission

The possible emission rate of particle-stable tetraneutron, a four-neutron system whose existence has been long debated within the scientific community, has been investigated by researchers from Tokyo Tech. They looked into ...

Elastane recycling: Stretching the lifespan of textiles

Clothing is far too valuable to simply dispose of and burn. Starting in 2025, used textiles are to be collected and recycled throughout the EU. Improved recycling processes are urgently needed to deal with the huge amount ...

Study unveils new insights into asymmetric particle collisions

A study has been published in Nuclear Science and Techniques, by researchers led by Prof. Hua Zheng from Shaanxi Normal University, heralding a significant breakthrough in high-energy particle physics. This study sheds new ...

Astronomers discover infant 'escaping star'

Stars escape from their birth place and eventually become dispersed across the galaxy. This is an important process in galactic evolution. Theoretical studies suggest two possible reasons why stars escape. First, stars may ...

Manipulating polaron transport via laser-induced coherent phonons

Polarons are quasiparticles composed of excess electrons dressed with virtual phonon clouds. They are ubiquitous in materials and play a key role in various physicochemical properties, including superconductivity, photocatalysis ...
