Finding Antineutrino OscillationExternal link

For more than three years, scientists on the NOvA collaboration, which includes MSU physicists, have been observing particles called neutrinos as they oscillate from one type to another over a distance of 500 miles. Now, in a new result unveiled at the Neutrino 2018 conference, the collaboration has announced its first results using antineutrinos. Read MoreExternal linkage

A Better Device for Measuring Electromagnetic RadiationExternal link

Bolometers, devices that monitor electromagnetic radiation through heating of an absorbing material, are used by astronomers and homeowners alike. But most such devices have limited bandwidth and must be operated at ultralow temperatures. Now, researchers say they’ve found a ultrafast yet highly sensitive alternative that can work at room temperature — and may be much less expensive. Read MoreExternal linkage
