  • How molecular clusters in the nucleus interact with chromosomes 24/11/2021
    Using computer simulations, chemists have discovered how nuclear bodies called nucleoli interact with chromosomes in the nucleus, and how those interactions help the nucleoli exist as stable droplets within the nucleus.
  • Breakthrough in surface-based groundwater measurement 24/11/2021
    A team of researchers has developed an effective technology to carry out very accurate, non-invasive groundwater measurements in previously inaccessible areas. Using the new technology, NMR measurements (nuclear magnetic resonance) are now a cheap, fast and, above all, very accurate tool for mapping and characterizing groundwater systems.
  • Electrons set the stage for neutrino experiments 24/11/2021
    Neutrinos may be the key to finally solving a mystery of the origins of our matter-dominated universe, and preparations for two major, billion-dollar experiments are underway to reveal the particles' secrets. Now, a team of nuclear physicists have turned to the humble electron to provide insight for how these experiments can better prepare to capture […]
  • Scientists create insights into perhaps the most extreme state of matter produced on Earth 19/11/2021
    Exotic laser-produced high-energy-density (HED) plasmas akin to those found in stars and nuclear explosions could provide insight into events throughout the universe. Physicists have discovered a new way to measure and understand these plasmas, among the most extreme states of matter ever produced on Earth. Improved understanding could provide benefits ranging from fine-tuning the high-density […]
  • Nuclear radiation used to transmit digital data wirelessly 10/11/2021
    Engineers have successfully transferred digitally encoded information wirelessly using nuclear radiation instead of conventional technology. The researchers measured the spontaneous emission of fast neutrons from californium-252, a radioactive isotope produced in nuclear reactors. Several examples of information, i.e., a word, the alphabet and a random number selected blindly, were encoded serially into the modulation of […]
  • How prolonged radiation exposure damages nuclear reactors 08/11/2021
    New research could help in boosting the efficiency of nuclear power plants in the near future. By using a combination of physics-based modeling and advanced simulations, they found the key underlying factors that cause radiation damage to nuclear reactors, which could then provide insight into designing more radiation-tolerant, high-performance materials.
  • Lake’s radioactivity concentration predicted for 10,000 days after the Fukushima accident 04/11/2021
    Researchers investigated the long-term contamination of Lake Onuma in Japan resulting from the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. They devised a formula based on a framework known as the fractional diffusion model to predict the radioactive contamination of the lake for up to about 30 years after the Fukushima accident. The results suggest that the […]
  • Underground tests dig into how heat affects salt-bed repository behavior 04/11/2021

  • Smoke from nuclear war would devastate ozone layer, alter climate 13/10/2021
    The massive columns of smoke generated by a nuclear war would alter the world's climate for years and devastate the ozone layer, endangering both human health and food supplies, new research shows. The international study draws on newly developed computer climate modeling techniques to paint an even grimmer picture of a global nuclear war's aftermath […]
  • Quarks and antiquarks at high momentum shake the foundations of visible matter 13/10/2021
    Two independent studies have illuminated unexpected substructures in the fundamental components of all matter. Preliminary results using a novel tagging method could explain the origin of the longstanding nuclear paradox known as the EMC effect. Meanwhile, authors will share next steps after the recent observation of asymmetrical antimatter in the proton.
