Physicists measure a short-lived radioactive molecule for first time

Researchers at MIT and elsewhere have combined the power of a super collider with techniques of laser spectroscopy to precisely measure a short-lived radioactive...

New satellite to continue 40 years of solar measurements

Researchers at CU Boulder are playing a major role in the next phase of a more than four decades-long campaign to take the temperature...

Quantum Entanglement Offers Unprecedented Precision for GPS and More

Your phone's GPS, the Wi-Fi in your house and communications on aircraft are all powered by radio-frequency, or RF, waves, which carry information from...

OCT Shines with a New Type of Contrast

A diagnostic workhorse, optical coherence tomography (OCT), provides high-resolution 3D imaging of subsurface tissue structures. Most likely, for your last eye exam, the ophthalmologist...

Time-travelling ESA team explore a virtual Moon

If someone had been watching as Apollo 15's Falcon Lunar Module headed down beside the moon's Appenine mountains in 1971, then this is what...

Belle II yields the first results: In search of the Z′...

The Belle II experiment has been collecting data from physical measurements for about one year. After several years of rebuilding work, both the SuperKEKB...

New measurements reveal evidence of elusive particles in a newly discovered...

Particle chasing—it’s a game that so many physicists play. Sometimes the hunt takes place inside large supercolliders, where spectacular collisions are necessary to find...
