Majorana Particles in Computation

An artist’s conception of the Majorana – a previously elusive subatomic particle whose existence has never been confirmed – until now. Dutch nano-scientists at the technological universities of Delft and Eindhoven, say they have found evidence of the particle. To … Continue reading

Lighting up the dark universe

The CHASE detector. The end of the magnet (orange) can be seen on the right. Exploring our dark universe is often the domain of extreme physics. Traces of dark matter particles are searched for by huge neutrino telescopes located underwater … Continue reading

Sounding off on Economic Constraints in Experimentation

I mean most understand that the economic spending “is the choice” as to whether an area of research will be continued to be funded or not, according to the direction that research council choose. Limited resources according to the times? … Continue reading

SuperCDMS An Improvement on Detection

So far no WIMP interaction has been observed, so the sensitivity needs to be improved further. This will be achieved by increasing the total detector mass (and with this the probability that a WIMP interacts in the detector) and at … Continue reading
