Graduate student Caleb Marshall’s paper describing the design, construction, and testing of the FENRIS group’s focal plane detector was accepted into IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement! This paper is the culmination of many years of hard work by Caleb and his co-authors.
The Ultra Cold Neutron source project has just submitted a new publication (https://arxiv.org/abs/1804.08616) related to our 2016 study of solid deuterium growth. This result is part of Graham Medlin’s PhD thesis.
The NC State physics department will be hosting the Fundamental Neutron Physics Summer School on July 16-20, 2018. More information can be found at: http://neutron.physics.ncsu.edu/NeutronSummerSchool
The Majorana Collaboration announced its first results from its search for Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay (0vBB) at the APS meeting of the Division of Nuclear Physics in Pittsburgh, PA. The work, detailed in an article posted on the arXiv (https://arxiv.org/abs/1710.11608) and awaiting publication details the Demonstrator’s world-leading energy resolution among 0vBB experiments, and a background rate rivaled only by the GERDA Collaboration’s similar search for 0vBB in 76Ge.
Prof. Matthew Green’s research was recently highlighted on the NCSU website in a Q&A session. His group was involved in the first measurement of coherent scattering of low-energy neutrinos off nuclei!
The research was published earlier this month in Science.
