A computer program that was created by a global research team can simulate the movement of cosmic rays through space. The goal is to help the researchers unravel the riddle surrounding the origins of cosmic rays.
Physicists at UC Riverside (UCR) and UC Irvine (UCI) co-led a study in which they discovered that dark matter halos of ultra-diffuse galaxies are very strange, raising queries concerning the researchers’ comprehension of the formation of the galaxy and the universe’s structure.
Everything need not be seen to be believed; some things are more easily heard, for instance, a train nearing a station.
An ultrathin invention could make future computing, sensing and encryption technologies remarkably smaller and more powerful by helping scientists control a strange but useful phenomenon of quantum mechanics, according to new research recently published in the journal Science.
Strange diamonds from an ancient dwarf planet in our solar system could lead to the production of ultra-hard machine parts, according to scientists.
Maser emissions, sometimes known as “cosmic lasers,” are created by amplifying stimulated emissions in the interstellar and circumstellar medium.
A new simulation run on the world's most powerful astronomy-focused supercomputer has developed a testable hypothesis to explain how the Milky Way’s bar appears.
The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) accelerates heavy-ion beams at beam power up to 400 kilowatts into a target to create rare isotopes for scientific research. A charge stripper plays an essential role in this process.
The cosmos was populated with an equal number of matter and “antimatter” particles right after the Big Bang. The universe then cooled as space expanded.
An ultracompact circularly polarized light source is crucial component for the applications of classical and quantum optics information processing.
An international research group has recently released findings that shed light on the atomic mechanism underlying high-temperature superconductors.
The most comprehensive photographs of the region where the famous constellation of Orion is bombarded with ultraviolet radiation from massive young stars have been taken by astronomers.
Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have completed a major expansion of one of the world's most powerful laser systems, creating new opportunities in accelerator research for the future of high-energy physics and other fields.
The “Hoyle state,” an excited form of carbon-12, is a unique arrangement of carbon that may be measured in a novel way.
The popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) as an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional gasoline vehicles has been on the rise. This has led to research efforts directed towards developing high-efficiency EV batteries. But, a major inefficiency in EVs results from inaccurate estimations of the battery charge.
