Light dark matter is a thousand times less likely to bump into regular matter than previous astrophysical analyses allowed

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

A team led by scientists from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University has narrowed down how strongly dark matter particles might interact with normal matter. Based on the number and distribution of small satellite galaxies seen orbiting our Milky Way, the team found this interaction to be at least a thousand times weaker than the strongest interaction allowed by previous astrophysical analyses.

SLAC makes ‘electron camera,’ a world-class tool for ultrafast science, available to scientists worldwide

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Over the past few years, the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has developed a new tool to visualize physical and chemical processes with outstanding clarity: an ultra-high-speed “electron camera” capable of tracking atomic motions in a broad range of materials in real time. Starting this week, the lab has made this tool available to researchers worldwide.

NUS scientists discover how to 'lock' heat in place using quantum mechanics

National University of Singapore

In a global first, NUS scientists have demonstrated that heat energy can be manipulated by utilising the quantum mechanical principle of anti-parity-time symmetry. Using this method, they were able to control the flow of heat in a material.

Designer proteins form wires and lattices on mineral surface

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

This research is a fundamental discovery of how to engineer proteins onto non-biological surfaces. Artificial proteins engineered from scratch have been assembled into nanorod arrays, designer filaments and honeycomb lattices on the surface of mica, demonstrating control over the way proteins interact with surfaces to form complex structures previously seen only in natural protein systems. The study provides a foundation for understanding how protein-crystal interactions can be systematically programmed and sets the stage for designing novel protein-inorganic hybrid materials.

Moon landing’s legacy: a better life on Earth

University of Georgia

As the world prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing on July 20, 2019, UGA Today talked with Ben Davis, a professor of mechanical engineering at UGA, about the wide-ranging benefits of this technological triumph. Before coming to UGA, Davis was a propulsion vibrations analyst at NASA.

Exactly how fast is the universe expanding?

Princeton University

Scientists are still not completely sure, but a Princeton-led team of astrophysicists has used the neutron star merger detected in 2017 to come up with a more precise value for this figure, known as the Hubble constant.
