The names for many of the dozens of particles that make up the universe—as well as a few that are still purely theoretical—come from ancient Greek.
(Phys.org)—Two teams of researchers working independently of one another have found ways to test aspects of the Tomonaga–Luttinger theory that describes interacting quantum particles in 1-D ensembles in a Tomonaga–Luttinger liquid (TLL). Show More Summary
Nuclear physicists are known for their atom-smashing explorations of the building blocks of visible matter. At the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a particle collider at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National...Show More Summary
Scientists from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory announced Cassini's detection of some wild and unexpected particles in Saturn's atmosphere. The post Mysterious Molecules Detected On Saturn During Cassini’s Grand Finale Dive appeared first on ExtremeTech.
A paper published this week in Astrophysical Journal, led by Open University academics, has examined the exact structure and behaviour of the icy particles that collide and grow at the onset of planet-formation, in a series of revealing experiments at the UK's world-leading neutron source, ISIS.
If physics were complete as-is, the Universe wouldn't exist. All particles would have found their antiparticle pairs and annihilated into a burst of energy. Matter and antimatter look like exact mirror images of one another, after all. Show More Summary
(Northwestern Memorial HealthCare) The Northwestern Medicine Chicago Proton Center will host over 200 leading clinicians, physicists and researchers in the growing field of proton therapy at the 4th Annual Particle Therapy Co-Operative Group North-America (PTCOG-NA) Conference, being held Oct.

Stores see a run on particle masks as residents breathe air resembling what some West Oakland residents face year-round.
A technique that combines machine learning and quantum computing has been used to identify the particles known as Higgs bosons. The method could find applications in many areas of science. See Letter p.375
Anthony Allen Shore confessed to four slayings after a tiny particle collected from under the fingernail of a 21-year-old murder victim was matched to his DNA
Following is a transcript of the video. Thinking of going on a cruise for the fresh ocean air? Think again. A recent undercover investigation on P&O Cruises' ship Oceana revealed ultra-fine particles in the air emitted from burning fuel. On deck, downwind of the smokestacks, the investigative team measured 84,000 particulates per cubic cm. Show More Summary
Sending bunches of protons speeding around a circular particle collider to meet at one specific point is no easy feat. Many different collider components work keep proton beams on course—and to keep them from becoming unruly.
Atmospheric physicists from the University of Hertfordshire have been tracking the atmospheric particles responsible for the stunning red sky and sun seen across parts of south-east England on Monday afternoon.
West Virginia University's new Inhalation Facility will be the home for research and collaborations that measure, identify and discover how the particles we breathe affect our health.
(University of Bonn) An international team of researchers has proposed a new way to make atoms or ions indistinguishable by swapping their positions. These particles are then expected to exhibit exotic properties. The study involved physicists from the University of Bonn, the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the University of California.

The study involved physicists from the University of Bonn, the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the University of California. The work has now been published in Physical Review Letters.
Dr. Ning Fang of the Chemistry Department at Georgia State University has developed a new optical imaging technique, Single Particle Orientation and Rotational Tracking (SPORT), to image rotational motions in live cells and ultimately target cancer cells.
One of the secrets to making tiny laser devices such as opthalmic surgery scalpels work even more efficiently is the use of tiny semiconductor particles, called quantum dots. In new research at Los Alamos National Laboratory's Nanotech...Show More Summary
