Newswise: The Golden Age of Heavy Ion Collisions

Article ID: 715606

The Golden Age of Heavy Ion Collisions

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Nuclear physicists conducting research at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) traded shift time for presentations on the latest successes and plans for the future at the 2019 RHIC & AGS (Alternating Gradient Synchrotron) Users' Meeting June 4-7. Even as RHIC's beams continued to collide for the completion of Run 19, there was plenty to celebrate in terms of machine performance and scientific highlights.

Meet the User Facility Team: Berndt Mueller and Rosi Reed, RHIC

Department of Energy, Office of Science

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory produces quark-gluon plasma, the substance created right after the Big Bang. Scientists and lab staff, led by Berndt Mueller and Rosi Reed, collaborate to develop an exciting research agenda for this machine.

Augustana University Professor’s Research Leads to Surprising Mating Decision in Butterfly Species

Augustana University, South Dakota

The males of one species of butterfly are more attracted to females that are active, not necessarily what they look like, according to a recent research conducted at Augustana University.The paper, “Behaviour before beauty: Signal weighting during mate selection in the butterfly Papilio polytes,” found that males of the species noticed the activity levels of potential female mates, not their markings.

Newswise: A Search for New Superheavy Isotopes

A Search for New Superheavy Isotopes

Department of Energy, Office of Science

If you chart the stability of atomic cores (nuclei), the trend is that adding more protons and neutrons makes the atom less stable. However, there’s an island of stability that bucks this trend. If scientists can provide an easier way of producing elements predicted to be on that island of stability, they can fine-tune today’s nuclear models. Such elements were difficult to produce, until a team built an apparatus that efficiently produces superheavy elements by transferring multiple nucleons (either protons or neutrons).

Argonne’s Nuclear Research Leads to Biomedical Breakthrough

Argonne National Laboratory

At first glance, nuclear waste and metal hip implants seem completely unrelated. But the answers to why medical implants fail and what we can do about it may come from an unlikely source — the nuclear fuel cycle. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have discovered that the same factors link the corrosion of nuclear waste forms — the packages scientists build to secure waste for millions of years — to corrosive conditions within the body that may cause implant failure.

Electron Bunches Keep Ions Cool at RHIC

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Accelerator physicists have demonstrated a groundbreaking technique using bunches of electrons to keep beams of particles cool at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)—a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science user facility for nuclear physics research at Brookhaven National Laboratory. This “bunched-beam” electron cooling technique will enable higher particle collision rates at RHIC, where scientists study the collision debris to learn about the building blocks of matter as they existed just after the Big Bang.
