Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a quantum simulator that can engineer interactions among hundreds of quantum bits (qubits)—10 times more than previous devices.
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERN has submitted a paper for publication describing the first observation of a new particle, an excited beauty baryon called the ?b*0 (?b is pronounced "Csai - bee").
On April 13 at KEK’s superconducting radio frequency test facility (STF), researchers successfully transported beam to the beam dump. The dump, located in the last part of the accelerator, is designed to absorb the energy of particles within accelerated beam. Now STF is no longer a test facility: it is the STF accelerator.
Construction of the $912-million National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory is more than 70 percent complete – on schedule and on budget.
Paul Canfield, a physicist at DOE’s Ames Laboratory, is known for his skill in synthesizing and characterizing materials in small, single-crystal form. And that work recently earned him a big prize: Canfield will receive an Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award on May 21.
The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) has announced the 2011 Leonard Parker Pool Safety Awards, sponsored by Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.
Cryo Diffusion has been awarded a contract by Air Liquide for helium valve boxes and vacuum insulated lines for the Qatar Helium 2 Project.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces revised pricing for crude helium that will be offered during its 2013 Open Market Sale effective October 2012.
Steven Kivelson, a member of SLAC’s Stanford Institute for Materials & Energy Science, has been named a winner of the 2012 John Bardeen Prize, in recognition of his theoretical research that has provided significant insights into the nature of “unconventional” superconductors.
Michael Pierce plans to study the history of the cosmos -- going back 10 billion years -- with an infrared camera it took him seven years to create.
