Fluorescence Yield of Yb Inside Solid Ne

The win this week belongs to the SADiCS team, who have been working to detect single atoms in solid noble gases in order to measure rare nuclear reactions in an energy range best suited for astrophysics (more information can be found here). This week the SADiCS team consisting of Dustin Frisbie, Kristen Parzuchowski and Jennifer Wenzl ...

Residual Magnetization Gradiometer

As of this week, there will be a weekly blog post titled “Weekly Win”. Each post will include information and a short blurb about something significantly exciting or remarkable which occurred in the lab that week, and each week the members of this group will vote for one of various nominations in order to determine ...

Colloquium @ University of Nevada-Reno

Testing Time-Reversal Symmetry Using Lasers, a Magic Room, and Pear-Shaped Nuclei Experimental tests of fundamental symmetries using nuclei and other particles subject to the strong nuclear force have led to the discovery of parity (P) violation and the discovery of charge-parity (CP) violation. It is believed that additional sources of CP-violation may be needed to ...
