KATRIN cuts the mass estimate for the elusive neutrino in half

University of Washington

At the 2019 Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics conference in Toyama, Japan, leaders from the KATRIN experiment reported Sept. 13 that the estimated range for the rest mass of the neutrino is no larger than 1 electron volt, or eV.

Newswise: The Importance of Communicating About (Nuclear) Science

Article ID: 717531

The Importance of Communicating About (Nuclear) Science

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Communicating about science is a challenge. Bridging the gap between conversations with colleagues immersed in the language of the laboratory and audiences ranging from educated and curious to uninterested or even distrustful can be daunting. Add to that the potential consequences of miscommunication—particularly in high-stakes fields like nuclear materials management and nonproliferation, where political, safety, and security issues exacerbate the task—and some scientists might be tempted to run from the microphone. But scientists at the Institute for Nuclear Materials Management recently hosted two sessions on why it's important to communicate, and tips for making it easier.

A Change in Structure for a Superheavy Magnesium Isotope

Department of Energy, Office of Science

A recent measurement exploring the structure of magnesium-40 has shown a surprising change in the structure relative to expectations. This unanticipated change could be pointing to physics missing from our theories, such as the effects of weak binding between particles.

Newswise: Antineutrino Detection Could Help Remotely Monitor Nuclear Reactors

Article ID: 717050

Antineutrino Detection Could Help Remotely Monitor Nuclear Reactors

Georgia Institute of Technology

Technology to measure the flow of subatomic particles known as antineutrinos from nuclear reactors could allow continuous remote monitoring designed to detect fueling changes that might indicate the diversion of nuclear materials. The monitoring could be done from outside the reactor vessel, and the technology may be sensitive enough to detect substitution of a single fuel assembly.
