A previous study claiming the discovery of gravitational waves as cosmic inflation’s fingerprint has most likely been over-interpreted, scientists found in a joint analysis between the Planck and BICEP2 experiments.
In an important step toward handling the nation’s uranium milling legacy, researchers try to understand why contamination at remediated uranium processing sites continues to persist at dangerously high levels.
Stanford and SLAC engineers observed electrons at work during catalytic reactions. Their findings challenge long-held theories about some catalysts, opening the door to new or improved renewable energy applications.
Plans to build the world’s largest digital camera at SLAC have reached a major milestone, with funding approval for the 3,200-megapixel camera. The camera will be the centerpiece of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), which will provide unprecedented details of the universe and help address some of its biggest mysteries.
Experiments have helped explain some of the imbalance between matter and antimatter in the universe, but not all of it. Now a SLAC theorist and his colleagues have laid out a possible method for determining if the Higgs boson is involved.
