Thesis Prize Winner Explores the Proton’s Spectrum

Roy_2016Thesis.jpg

When it comes to laying bare the secrets of the proton, Priyashree Roy’s efforts at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility have already contributed a whole swath of new information useful to researchers. Now, the thesis she wrote about her work has earned her the 2016 Jefferson Science Associates Thesis Prize.

Simulation Is Changing the Way That Healthcare Professionals Learn and Improve Patient Safety

Healthcare simulation is rapidly changing the face of healthcare. Simulation isa technique that creates a situation or environment allowing people to experience a representation of a real event for the purpose of experiential practice, learning, testing, evaluation and understanding of systems. The inaugural Healthcare Simulation Week will be held September 11-15, 2017

A Silent Search for Dark Matter

Results from its first run indicate that XENON1T is the most sensitive dark matter detector on Earth. The sensitivity of the detector – an underground sentinel awaiting a collision that would confirm a hypothesis – stems from both its size and its “silence.”

Bond Dissociation Energies for Transition Metal Silicides Accurately Determined

Transition metal silicides are promising for future developments in electronic devices, but fundamental aspects of the chemical bonding between their transition metal atoms and silicon remain poorly understood. One of the most important, but poorly known, properties is the strength of these chemical bonds -- the thermochemical bond dissociation energy. Researchers from the University of Utah have investigated this, and in this week’s The Journal of Chemical Physics, they present their findings for a number of specific compounds.

Research Center Established to Explore the Least Understood and Strongest Force Behind Visible Matter

DeshpandeAbhayinternet_1.jpg

Science can explain only a small portion of the matter that makes up the universe, from the earth we walk on to the stars we see at night. Stony Brook University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) have established the Center for Frontiers of Nuclear Science to help scientists better understand the building blocks of visible matter. The new Center will push the frontiers of knowledge about quarks, gluons and their interactions that form protons, neutrons, and ultimately 99.9 percent of the mass of atoms – the bulk of the visible universe.
