Professor Todd Huffman tells us about a new technique that could dramatically, and simply, increase the sensitivity of ATLAS detectors to B hadrons.
Do solar neutrinos impact light dark matter searches?
New research from the University of Adelaide suggests neutrinos could seriously affect dark matter detection experiments.
