Energy-recovery linear accelerator proposed for next-generation physics research

Energy-recovery linear accelerator proposed for next-generation physics research As physicists developed plans for building an electron-ion collider (EIC)—a next-generation nuclear physics facility to be built at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory for […]

Quantum physics: Controlled experiment observes self-organized criticality

Quantum physics: Controlled experiment observes self-organized criticality Writing in Nature, researchers describe the first-time observation of ‘self-organized criticality’ in a controlled laboratory experiment. Complex systems exist in mathematics and physics, but also occur in nature and […]
