Researchers offer a new tool to characterize shock waves with their experimentally confirmed model
Collaborators of the MAJORANA DEMONSTRATOR, an experiment led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, have shown they can shield a sensitive, scalable 44-kilogram germanium detector array from background radioactivity
Theoretical description supported by mathematical calculations provides a roadmap that could lead to discovery of a 'chiral spin liquid'
Advance could eventually spawn new states of matter
Recent results could inform ongoing efforts to detect dark matter directly, especially if researchers have a clear idea of what sorts of properties they should be seekin
The team's findings should help inform future experiments involving high-intensity lasers
Scientists use the high-energy beams, which must be stable and intense to work effectively, to unlock the ultimate structure of matter
Landmark anniversary of Canadian innovation at TRIUMF reflects on past decades of discovery and looks to future
