Physicists Prove Existence of New Form of Matter: Excitonium

New research led by a University of Illinois physicist has proved the existence of a new form of matter — ‘excitonium,’ a solid crystal of excitons. The research, led by Professor Peter Abbamonte, is published in the December 8 issue of the journal Science. Artist’s depiction of the collective excitons …

Physicists Precisely Measure Proton’s Magnetic Moment

In a paper published in the journal Science, a team of physicists from Japan and Germany reports the most precise measurement ever made of the magnetic moment of the proton, allowing a fundamental comparison between matter and antimatter. The new result improves by a factor 11 the precision of the …

Earth Can Absorb High-Energy Neutrinos, Physicists Find

Neutrinos are subatomic particles that are famous for passing through anything and everything. Now, physicists have demonstrated that our planet stops high-energy neutrinos — they do not go through everything. The experiment was achieved with the IceCube Observatory, an array of 5,160 basketball-sized sensors frozen deep within a km3 of …
