Dr Florian Reindl and Dr Moritz v. Sivers tell us about the hunt for dark matter and rare nuclear decays using ultra-sensitive detectors.
An Interview with Professor James Colgan
We chat to Professor James Colgan about his work, his inspiration and the big questions in science.
Do solar neutrinos impact light dark matter searches?
New research from the University of Adelaide suggests neutrinos could seriously affect dark matter detection experiments.
Laura Baudis: the detection of dark matter and XENON
All our evidence for dark matter is based on indirect observations. That isn’t enough, we need direct detection.
Image of the week: on the hunt for WIMPs
It’s not easy making a discovery. Sometimes you need a worldwide effort to know just where to look.
Did dark matter kill off the dinosaurs?
Not directly perhaps, but did it influence the final hammer blow 65 million years ago?
David B. Cassidy: trapping positronium
We talk to Professor David B. Cassidy from the Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Positron Physics group at University College London about his work with positronium – an exotic atom made of matter and antimatter – and more. Q: Which research… Read More ›
Sir Tejinder Virdee: an interview with the IOP Glazebrook Medal winner 2015
Alongside a knighthood from the Queen in 2014, Sir Tejinder has won a raft of awards. We find out more about the man behind the mind, the importance of the Large Hadron Collider and what inspired him to become the successful physicist he is today.
Neutrino physics with JUNO
The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory’s new report shows the world why it will be an important step in our understanding of the universe we live in.
Is there dark matter in our neighbourhood?
Dark matter could be lurking on our doorstep according to a new model discussed in a recent paper and Physics World blog.
