AMSC announced it has filed an appeal with China's Supreme People's Court.
At 00:38 CEST on April 5, the LHC shift crew declared "stable beams" as two 4 TeV proton beams were brought into collision at the LHC’s four interaction points. This signals the start of physics data taking by the LHC experiments for 2012. The collision energy of 8 TeV is a new world record, and increases the machine’s discovery potential considerably.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) is putting the brakes on the development of a gigantic experiment seen as the flagship project for the next decade at the country's sole particle physics laboratory.
Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory’s biggest magnet facility have met the grand challenge of producing magnetic fields in excess of 100 tesla while conducting six different experiments.
Two leaders of the OPERA collaboration, which stunned the world in September when it announced data suggesting that neutrinos could travel faster than the speed of light, have stepped down.
For decades, physicists have debated the origins of high-temperature superconductivity—the ability of some materials to carry electricity without resistance at temperatures up to 138 kelvin. Now, new data nix one possible explanation, albeit a less popular one, a team claims. If the finding holds up, it would sever any connection between ordinary superconductors, such as lead and niobium, and the high-temperature materials.
The National Science Board (NSB) announced on March 26 that Nobel laureate, Leon Lederman, is the 2012 recipient of its Vannevar Bush Award.
Just as water, ice, and steam are all phases of the same material that are influenced by temperature and pressure, new research shows how transitions of state work in very simple lattices primarily composed of copper.
Scientists working at the Institut Laue-Langevin, the world’s flagship center for neutron science, have carried out the first investigation of two-dimensional fermion liquids using neutron scattering, and discovered a new type of very short wave-length density wave.
Air Liquide and Astrium have announced the creation of EuroCryospace, the new European expansion of Cryospace, created nearly 25 years ago by both companies, for the development and production of Ariane cryogenic tanks.
Fermilab's neutrino experiment, MicroBooNE, is beginning the full construction phase for the detector, after DOE announced the official Critical Decision 3b approval on March 29.
In response to comments from U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden suggesting the United States needs a policy on energy exports and that a "timeout" should be declared on permits to export LNG to non-Free Trade Agreement countries, Center for Liquefied Natural Gas (CLNG) President Bill Cooper issued the following statement:
Gas-assist injection molders (GAIM) can improve efficiency and quality -- even on lightweight parts and difficult geometries -- with the help of a new liquid nitrogen (N2) pressure booster from Linde North America.
For postdoctoral scholars, or postdocs, Argonne National Laboratory is the 6th best place to work in the United States, according to The Scientist, a life sciences magazine.
