Image of the week: nuclear processes in the universe

Nuclear reactions in stars are the powerhouses of the universe, and its these same processes that create the elements. Understanding these processes is one of the core aims in the field of nuclear astrophysics – something that our… 165 more words

The CRESST experiment: an interview with dark matter hunters

The hunt for dark matter and the search for very rare nuclear decays have very similar requirements. Today we talk to Dr Florian Reindl (Max-Planck-Institut für Physik) and  1,562 more words


Experimental Observations Of Ephemeral Electric Fields

I have talked before about the Navier–Stokes equations and how they do not always have a solution that can be found. This is why wind tunnels are so important as only by performing an experimental  observation can results be found for various shapes. 235 more words

Investigating Heavy Ions

Although it is easy to think of electrons as existing in specific orbits and adding an electron either adds to the same orbit or creates a new orbit; this is a great simplification. 231 more words
