The Relationship Between Charge Density Waves and Superconductivity? It’s Complicated.External link

Physicists have long tried to understand the relationship between a periodic pattern of conduction electrons called a charge density wave, and another quantum order, superconductivity, or zero electrical resistance, in the same material.For the first time, physicists at Ames Laboratory and their international collaborators were able to explore that relationship in the superconducting and CDW material niobium diselenide (NbSe2), through experiments using swift electron bombardment.

The Quest for Better AcceleratorsExternal link

The ability to perfectly control the process of laying thin films of material onto the surface of an inexpensive metal may be all it takes to produce more efficient and cheaper particle accelerators for a wide range of applications. Valente-Feliciano, an accelerator physicist at Jefferson Lab, has been awarded a DOE Early Career Award to pursue her research into building better accelerators. Read More »

Extracting Signals of Elusive Particles from Giant Chambers Filled with Liquefied ArgonExternal link

A revolutionary new kind of neutrino detector, designed in part by scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, sits at the heart of the MicroBooNE experiment at DOE’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). In two new papers, the MicroBooNE collaboration describes how they use this detector to pick up the telltale signs of neutrinos. The papers include details of the signal processing algorithms that are critical to accurately reconstruct neutrinos’ subtle interactions with atoms in the detector. Read More »
