July 7, 2015 — With the successful restart of the Large Hadron Collider, now operating at nearly twice its former collision energy, comes an enormous increase in the volume of data physicists must sift through to ... read more

June 22, 2015 — A basic characteristic of elementary particles, spin is used daily in certain imaging techniques; yet, previous studies of the mechanics behind proton spin did not add up. An experiment at the ... read more

June 19, 2015 — Colliding lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider creates tiny samples of matter at energy densities that have not occurred since microseconds after the Big Bang. At these densities, ordinary matter ... read more

June 16, 2015 — An international team of physicists has measured the mass of a "strange" atomic nucleus with the aid of an innovative technique that is capable of significantly greater precision than that ... read more

Softly Does It to Solve Our Nuclear Waste Problem

June 16, 2015 — Driven by the need to find ways of separating, recycling and reducing nuclear waste, chemists are developing our understanding of how uranium interacts with elements from around the periodic table to ... read more

June 16, 2015 — Challenging previously held views, scientific results show that californium can covalently bond with borate, dramatically altering the electronic characteristics of the californium ion. This research ... read more

Bacteria Could Help Clean Groundwater Contaminated by Uranium Ore Processing

June 15, 2015 — A strain of bacteria that 'breathes' uranium may hold the key to cleaning up polluted groundwater at sites where uranium ore was processed to make nuclear weapons, scientists say. A group ... read more

Hybrid Scanner Combines Five Molecular Imaging Technologies

June 8, 2015 — Scientists are taking medical imaging research and drug discovery to a new level by developing a molecular imaging system that combines several advanced technologies for all-in-one imaging of both ... read more

June 3, 2015 — When experiments at the Large Hadron Collider collect the first 13-teraelectronvolt particle collisions data today, a long wait will be over for physicists who now begin some of the most exciting ... read more

June 3, 2015 — Magnetic resonance tomography images are an important diagnostic tool. The achievable contrast depends on how well the nuclear spins that form the basis of the imaging signals can be controlled. ... read more

Plasma for Medical, Biological Uses: New Electron Density Diagnostic Method

June 2, 2015 — An electron density diagnostic method has been developed for atmospheric pressure low-temperature plasma that is anticipated to be applicable for the fields of environmental protection and of ... read more

June 1, 2015 — A mini hybrid gamma ray camera has been developed and is expected to revolutionize identification and removal of tumors and lymph nodes. A ‘hybrid technology’ mini camera combines optical and ... read more

May 25, 2015 — Nuclear physicists have used two different methods to measure the proton's electric form factor. But the deeper that they probe inside the proton, the more the results from these two different ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Researchers have determined that a tunnel bomb explosion by Syrian rebels was less than 60 tons as claimed by sources. Using seismic stations in Turkey, the scientists created a method to determine ... read more
