MINOS experiment sheds light on mystery of neutrino disappearance

AUSTIN, Texas—Physicists from The University of Texas at Austin, as part of an international collaboration of scientists, observed the disappearance of neutrinos during a Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS) experiment, a finding that could help explain the role of these subatomic particles in the evolution of the universe. Sending a ...

New laser technique measures Brownian motion of a single particle

AUSTIN, Texas—Using a new technique to trap and measure single particles with lasers, an international group of researchers from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, The University of Texas at Austin and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany, have demonstrated that Brownian motion of a single pa...
