New record at ultracold neutron source in Mainz

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Researchers at Mainz University installed an update to their ultracold neutron source. Now the prerequisites are in place that are needed to begin the more sensitive measurements required to determine the lifetime of the free neutron.

The CSI effect: Viewing TV crime shows does not make better criminals

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) In an experimental study, the German researchers have been able to find no evidence of a correlation between watching forensic science TV shows and the ability to get away with committing a cr...

Mainz physicists propose a new method for monitoring nuclear waste

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) New scientific findings suggest neutrino detectors may play an important role in ensuring better monitoring and safer storage of radioactive material in nuclear waste repository sites.

New proton record: Researchers measure magnetic moment with greatest possible precision

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) The magnetic moment of an individual proton is inconceivably small, but can still be quantified. By determining the magnetic moment of the proton to ten decimal places, which is the most precise measurement currently available, physicists from Germany and Japan set yet another record.
