In the CERN experiment NA62, low-mass straw-tube tracking-chambers have been designed to operate in vacuum and, in conjunction with precisely mapped magnetic fields, enable the determination of the trajectories of the charged decay products of a 75 GeV/c K+ with… Read More ›
Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics
The total number of referee reports received by the JPhys series during Peer Review Week 2016 so far!
As part of Peer Review Week 2016, the JPhys team and IOP Publishing are exploring how peer review works and looking at what we do to #RecognizeReview
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.
Celebrate Canada Day with the JPhys+ team
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. “
IOP Publishing is partnering with Editage, a leader in English language and publication support services, to provide a range of manuscript support services for authors working in physical sciences and engineering.
Paul Hardaker, CEO: “We know well that science benefits the economy and creates jobs. If we are to see these benefits continue to grow we need to remain competitive in funding, and both the UK and Ireland need to be the places where physicists can do world-class science.”
