14 Immense Scientific Instruments You Won't Believe Are Real

12 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Science is awesome. And thanks to the internet age, it's easy to be witness to that fact. For example? This beautiful image of the photomultiplier tubes in the Daya Bay Neutrino Experiment detectors, which mesmerized millions when it appeared online this week. Read more...

Daya Bay furthers neutrino knowledge

A new Daya Bay result advances our understanding of neutrinos by precisely measuring their oscillation behavior at different energies. Scientists on an experiment that in 2012 revealed an important aspect of neutrinos announced this week that they had further contributed to our understanding of the puzzling elementary particles.

New results from Daya Bay

The international Daya Bay Collaboration has announced new results about the transformations of neutrinos - elusive, ghostlike particles that carry invaluable clues about the makeup of the early universe. The latest findings includeShow More Summary

High-precision measurement of subatomic shape shifting and new result on differences among neutrino masses

New results about the oscillation of neutrinos -- elusive, ghostlike particles that carry invaluable clues about the makeup of the early universe -- have been announced by the Daya Bay Collaboration, an international experiment taking place outside of Hong Kong.

Korean experiment confirms groundbreaking neutrino measurement

Hot on the heels of the Daya Bay experiment's completion of one of the most difficult measurements in neutrino physics, a Korean experiment has produced its own measurement confirming the earlier results.

Neutrinos in the News

A little more tab clearance, here, this time a few recent stories dealing with those elusive little buggers, neutrinos. In roughly chronological order: The Daya Bay experiment in China has measured a key parameter for neutrino oscillation...Show More Summary

Daya Bay experiment makes key measurement, paves way for future discoveries

Daya Bay observes theta13 at 5 sigma!

Too many news these days, so just a brief note on something that deserves a long article. TheDaya Bay experiment just announced the measurement of one of the last unknown fundamental parameters in the Standard Model (understood as the old Standard Model extended by the neutrino mass operators).

Daya Bay: Discovery of new kind of neutrino transformation

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment collaboration has announced a precise measurement of the last of the unsolved neutrino "mixing angles," which determine how neutrinos oscillate among different types. The ground-breaking collaboration is the most sensitive reactor neutrino experiment in the world. Show More Summary

Announcing the first results from Daya Bay: Discovery of a new kind of neutrino transformation

BEIJING; BERKELEY, CA; and UPTON, NY – The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment, a multinational collaboration operating in the south of China, today reported the first results of its search for the last, most elusive piece of a long-standing...Show More Summary

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment Begins Taking Data

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has begun its quest to answer some of the most puzzling questions about the elusive elementary particles known as neutrinos. The experiment's first completed set of twin detectors is now recording...Show More Summary

First data from Daya Bay: Closing in on a neutrino mystery

The international Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment in southern China has just begun collecting data on the elusive final measurement needed before the masses of the different kinds of neutrinos can be determined.

Daya Bay: New neutrino detection experiment in China up and running

Deep under a hillside near Hong Kong, a pair of new antineutrino detectors are warming up for some serious physics. Twin detectors recently installed in the first of three experimental halls in the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment...Show More Summary

Slide show: Daya Bay on the brink

Within the past few weeks, the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment in China has made rapid strides toward completion of the first of three underground experimental halls for collecting data on the last unknown neutrino “mixing angle,” denoted ?13 (pronounced theta one three).

Frustration when a government does not provide the necessary health care

by Yann Meunier, MD Year: 1988 Setting: Electricite de France clinic at Daya Bay, China Position: Resident physician A Japanese encephalitis epidemic has struck southern China and I am in its midst at Daya Bay where Electricite de France is building a nuclear plant for the Chinese government. As the resident physician for the company, [...]

The Daya Bay Neutrino Experiment: On Track to Completion

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment brings Chinese and American scientists together with colleagues from Russia, Taiwan, and the Czech Republic to investigate perhaps the most important unanswered question relating to the phenomenon of neutrino oscillation.

While we are on the issue of environmental risk... nuclear power plants

(This post has nothing to do with investing per se.) Bloomberg reports, China’s Daya Bay nuclear power plant had a “very small leakage” from a fuel rod last month that has been contained, CLP Holdings Ltd., Hong Kong’s biggest electricity...Show More Summary
