Physicists Zoom in on Gluons' Contribution to Proton Spin

#Physicists Zoom in on Gluons' Contribution to Proton Spin. Latest data from high-energy proton collisions at RHIC indicate that "wimpy" gluons have a big impact on proton spin, and gluons overall may contribute more than quarks.

Materials Science is About To Get Crazy

Synchrotrons help bring superconductors out of the cold

(Phys.org) -- The longstanding search for a room temperature superconductor is fueled by a tantalizing set of possible applications that sound like science fiction: infinitely long power lines that never lose energy, magnetically levitating trains, and incredibly fast quantum computers.

Compact synchrotron makes tumors visible

Soft tissue disorders like tumors are very difficult to recognize using normal X-ray machines. There is hardly any distinction between healthy tissue and tumors. Researchers at the Technische Universität München (TUM) have now developed a technology using a compact synchrotron source that measures not only X-ray absorption, but also phase shifts and scattering. Tissue that is hardly recognizable using traditional X-ray machines is now visible.

US Military Wants Smaller and More Stable Atomic Clocks

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently announced a new program called Atomic Clocks with Enhanced Stability (#ACES). The program aims to design an atomic clock that is 1,000 times more stable than current models, which are so precise that they are capable of maintaining perfect time for billions of years, neither gaining nor losing 1 second during that time.
