Nuclear reactions in stars are the powerhouses of the universe, and its these same processes that create the elements. Understanding these processes is one of the core aims in the field of nuclear astrophysics – something that our recent interview… Read More ›
Dr Florian Reindl and Dr Moritz v. Sivers tell us about the hunt for dark matter and rare nuclear decays using ultra-sensitive detectors.
How exactly do you launch strings of neutrino detectors hundreds of meters long, hundreds of meters deep in the ocean?
Professor Todd Huffman tells us about a new technique that could dramatically, and simply, increase the sensitivity of ATLAS detectors to B hadrons.
A square kilometre neutrino telescope deep in the Mediterranean sea. We find out more with spokesperson Maarten de Jong.
Professor Hendrik Schatz talks to us about the field that shapes the understanding of everything we see in the night sky and the planet we live on.
The static screening effect in a plasma of charged particles prolongs the lifetime of 8Be
New research from the University of Adelaide suggests neutrinos could seriously affect dark matter detection experiments.
Probing the nucleon with the electron scattering technique is one of the best ways to understand nuclear structure, and understanding this process gives rise to our image of the week. Authors M Karliner, C King and N S Manton from Tel Aviv University… Read More ›
“Once upon a time, the world was simple: the proton contained three quarks, two ups and a down. “
Every year on April 22 people across the world raise awareness and support for the protection of our environment. For planet Earth.
We introduce the new Editor-in-Chief of NJP; a leading open access journal and sister of the JPhys series.
Nuclei are at the core of everything in day to day life. Understanding how they work and interact is a fundamental science vital to applications in the real world as well as pure research.
Image of the Week: Dalitz plots – We really like this image, it looks like Bane from Batman!
