Boutique neutrons advance 40Ar/39Ar geochronology  Science Magazine · 6 days
We designed and tested a compact deuteron-deuteron fusion neutron generator for application to 40Ar/39Ar geochronology. The nearly monoenergetic neutrons produced for sample irradiation are anticipated to provide several advantages compared with conventional fission spectrum neutrons: Reduction of collateral... more
Using ultracold atoms to find WMDs  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
One problem in dealing with weapons of mass destruction is that they are well hidden. The key to finding them may be to change the methods we use to look. One such method is taking shape... more
Laser-based ultrasound approach provides new direction for nondestructive testing  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
Many industrial buildings, including nuclear power plants and chemical plants, rely on ultrasound instruments that continually monitor the structural integrity of their systems without damaging or altering their features. One... more
CERN simulating Jupiter  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
This test facility at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, was used to simulate the high-radiation environment surrounding Jupiter to prepare for ESA's JUICE mission to the largest planet in our Solar System. more

Hydrogen induces high-temperature superconductivity in a monolayer material  nanowerk · 4 weeks
The latest addition in exciting properties of 2D materials has been superconductivity - the complete absence of resistance at low temperatures - clearly exciting for dissipationless (low-power, heating free) electronics. Researchers hypothesized... more
