The sun produces many different kinds of energy. Visible light only constitutes a tiny fraction of the radiation that the sun and other stars produce, and neutrinos are one of the types of invisible energies that emanate from our local star.
By all measures, graphene should not exist. The fact it does comes down to some neat loophole in physics which sees with an impossible 2D sheet of atoms behave like a good 3D material. New research has delved into graphene’s rippling, discovering a physical happening on an atomic scale which
A neutrino moving through solid matter will sometimes create a shower of fast-moving charged particles called a cascade. As these particles slow down, they ionize atoms in the solid, leaving behind a tell-tale cloud of electrical charge.
Leading neutrino energy scientists are quite a bit ahead of the curve when it comes to finding a solution to keep fossil fuels in the ground and to save the climate by bringing a viable new source of green energy. Back in 2015, Holger Thorsten Schubart, the CEO of the
The answer to that question is an interesting one, which depends on how one understands the statistical analysis of complex experiments. The experimental result could be the early signs of something big, but it is also important to be appropriately cautious. So, what really happened? It starts with an announcement by a consortium
Graphene can be used to enhance photonics, as a detector for light, an optoelectronic transceiver, or as part of high-resolution imaging systems. A surprising application of graphene is its use in photodetectors. Light detection capabilities of graphene are inherently limited because a single sheet of the material absorbs only ~2.3%
At the Fermilab DUNE (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment) project, the U.S. Department of Energy plans to collaborate with top energy scientists from around the world to send the world’s most powerful neutrino beam to a sister station at SURF (Sanford Underground Research Facility) around 1,000 miles away through the Earth. This experiment
To a person living a thousand years ago, our current level of technological sophistication would have undoubtedly seemed just like magic. We’ve granted ourselves these powers with the help of new energy sources that have driven developments in engineering and provided dependable substitutes to the alchemical infusions and occult incantations
Every generation has felt that culture changed the most during its tenure, but it’s possible that during this era, the feeling of vertigo caused by sweeping, systemic change may truly be more intense than ever before. Never before have so many time-honored institutions been questioned at once, and the very
