Daya Bay discovers a mismatch

The latest measurements from the Daya Bay neutrino experiment in China don’t align with predictions from nuclear theory. A new result from the Daya Bay experiment has revealed a possible flaw in predictions from nuclear theory.  “Nobody expected that from neutrino physics,” says Anna Hayes, a nuclear theorist at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The Mystery Of The Vanishing Chinese Neutrinos

11 months agoTechnology : Forbes: Tech

Four of the eight neutrino detectors at Daya Bay in China. Nuclear reactors are best-known as power plants, generating electricity. However, they're also important physics laboratories, producing exotic atomic nuclei and particles that are useful in other contexts. One byproduct is antineutrinos: the antimatter version of neutrinos, some of the [...]
