June 26, 2015 — The transportation of certain molecules into and out of the cell nucleus takes place via nuclear pores. For some time, detailed research has been conducted into how these pores embedded in the ... read more

June 24, 2015 — Researchers have made a crucial step toward nuclear spintronic technologies. They have gotten nuclear spins to line themselves up in a consistent, controllable way, and they have done it using a ... read more

June 23, 2015 — Physicists have demonstrated a novel method that scientists can use to manipulate the intrinsic - or self-generated - rotation of hot, charged plasma gas within fusion facilities called ... 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
