Alive or dead? Cutting-edge research by scientists at Yale multiplies the power of Schrodinger’s cat, heralding the age of the quantum computer.
Yale Professor Bonnie Fleming was appointed Deputy Chief Research Officer at Fermilab and will oversee projects about the newly discovered neutrino. This research could change our understanding of how the universe came to be.
Ongoing research led by Yale Wright Laboratory Director Karsten Heeger seeks to prove or disprove the existence of a fourth form of neutrino–the sterile neutrino. The results would require physicists to rethink the Standard Model of Particle Physics and its assumptions.
Greg Meyer’s early passion for hands-on encounters propelled him into physics research at Yale, CERN, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Yale associate professor of physics Jack Harris has received a Keck grant to investigate quantum gravity.
For 50 years, the Wright Particle Accelerator was a symbol of Yale’s commitment to and dominance in the field of physics. This story commemorates these decades of excellence, and explores what is next for the Wright Lab.
Recent cyber attacks have caused concern over the state of information security, but quantum key distribution promises to revolutionize public key cryptography and reconfigure the relationship between code-makers and code-breakers.
The science behind the “God particle.”
In 1934, a team led by Italian scientist Enrico Fermi began bombarding uranium atoms with neutrons, producing much smaller atoms, such as barium, and some neutrons. This process came to be known as nuclear fission.
