Berkeley Lab researchers contribute to the most precise measurement of double beta decay rate in Mo-100
In a new paper published in Physical Review Letters, the CUPID-Mo Collaboration reports on the most precise measurements of the two-neutrino double beta (2νββ) decay rate and the spectral shape in Mo-100.
André Walker-Loud elected as one of this year’s APS Fellows
Congratulations to André Walker-Loud who has been announced as one of this year’s APS Fellows for definitive contributions to fundamental symmetries in nucleons and nuclei, utilizing lattice QCD and Effective Field Theory, including the high-precision computation of the nucleon axial coupling.
Berkeley Lab to Test New Approach to Making Superheavy Elements
Nuclear Science Division researchers are starting to test techniques and equipment for a potential attempt at creating element 120 using the lab’s 88-Inch Cyclotron.
NSD’s Lee Bernstein and Brian Quitter Recognized with Director’s Awards
Congratulations to Lee Bernstein and Brian Quitter, part of the Physical Sciences Area staff members who have received 2023 Berkeley Lab Director’s Awards.
Making Rad Maps With Robot Dogs
In 2013, researchers carried a Microsoft Kinect camera through houses in Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture. The device’s infrared light traced the contours of the buildings, making a rough 3D map. On top of this, the team layered information from an early version of a hand-held gamma-ray imager, displaying the otherwise invisible nuclear radiation from the Fukushima…
