The DUNE experiment intends to unlock the mysteries of the neutrino

Stefan Söldner-Rembold, Co-spokesperson for Fermilab’s Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), explores the groundbreaking discoveries that the experiment is set to enable. The U.S. Department of...

A novel cosmic ray sensor can successfully observe tsunami waves

Researchers from the University of Tokyo use muon particle technology to observe and detect tsunami waves. Highly energetic particles called muons are ever present in the atmosphere and can pass through large objects with ease. Sensitive detectors installed along the...

The EIC: tremendous potential for particle accelerator technology

Physicist Dr Daria Sokhan discusses how the UK will be at the forefront of development for the EIC particle accelerator in the US. Physicists from around the world are collaborating on the build of a new particle collider set to...

CDF collaboration researchers achieve precise measurement of W boson mass

Scientists at the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) have attained the most precise measurement yet of the mass of the W boson.  After a decade of research and analysis, researchers working with the CDF collaboration at the US Department of...

The LHCb reveals how antimatter is created in cosmic collisions

LHCb researchers analyse particle collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to determine whether antimatter that is detected by experiments in space could originate from dark matter. The LHCb experiment is one of eight particle physics detector experiments collecting data at the Large...

Using cutting edge thermoplastic materials in the aerospace sector

The HITCOMP project has analysed the advantages of utilising thermoplastics in the aerospace sector to determine they are more efficient than conventional thermosetting composites. The HITCOMP (High Temperature Characterisation and Modelling of Thermoplastic Composites) project, which is part of the...

Novel centre marks funding boost for science in the North East 

A new centre for science in the North East – which will be ran by Northumbria and Newcastle Universities – represents a significant boost for the region.  Big data is the special application of data science, in which the large...

How nanomagnets self-align in specific layouts due to temperature change

Researchers at PSI have utilised nanomagnets to analyse their behaviour under certain temperature changes, to allow a better understanding of processes that take place within artificial spin ice. When water freezes to form ice, the water molecules, alongside their hydrogen and...

Sea anemone gene linked to development of auditory cells in humans

A research team from the University of Arkansas has made a link between the developmental gene for touch in sea anemones and the development of auditory cells in humans. An international team of investigators, including several researchers in biological sciences...

Improving the crystallinity of large single-layer graphene

An interface-templated method has the potential to enhance the crystallinity of large single-layer graphene sheets on insulating supports. A novel method can improve the crystallinity of large single-layer graphene, by electrically insulating its supports. This potentially could help with the...

Scavenger nanoparticles could make fuel cell-powered vehicles a reality

A collaborative group of engineers have created a material that prevents inexpensive catalysts from degrading in cell-powered vehicles. A collaborative team, including engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago, has developed a material that has the potential to give fuel...
