Nuclear physicists at RIKEN have measured the likelihood that 20 neutron-rich nuclei would emit neutrons, which has improved models for how heavy elements are produced within stars.
A research group has been able to view faraway spiral galaxies for the very first time to study how they developed and how they tend to change with respect to time, because of the advanced capabilities of the James Webb Space Telescope.
When physicists steered a tiny microparticle toward a cylindrical obstacle, they expected one of two outcomes to occur. The particle would either collide into the obstacle or sail around it. The particle, however, did neither.
A new analysis supports the idea that particles of light (photons) colliding with heavy ions create a fluid of "strongly interacting" particles.
A statewide University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH)-led effort to fund, develop and commercialize plasma research and the high-tech workforce it requires is reaching out to a broad coalition of researchers, students, businesspeople and the public with a goal of stimulating thousands of high-paying jobs in Alabama and the Southeast.
A new state of matter known as the Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) is achieved by cooling low-density atomic gas to extremely low temperatures (–273 °C). Two-atom molecules that are strongly coupled in a BEC behave like a collective wave in accordance with quantum mechanics.
Scientists at ETH Zurich and TII Abu Dhabi, with the help of quantum optics theorists from Innsbruck, Austria, have been efficient in concurrently cooling the tiny glass sphere’s motion in two dimensions to the quantum ground-state.
An international astronomers group including three scientists affiliated with the Nicolaus Copernicus University has been successful in mapping the protostellar disk having the greatest accuracy that has been known currently.
At the University of Oxford, a contribution has been given by scientists to a significant international study that has captured a unique and captivating space phenomenon.
It isn't easy to describe the structure of a quantum mechanical system of 208 strongly interacting protons and neutrons based on two and three-nucleon forces.
