Interest is growing in new experiments that probe dark-matter candidates such as axions and other very weakly interacting sub-eV particles.
XENON1T is a 3D-imaging liquid-xenon time projection chamber located at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy.
The temporal distribution of solar flares is correlated with the positions of the Earth, Mercury and Venus.
Using three complementary techniques, CMS has now explored a large range in mass, coupling and width.
XENON1T is the first tonne-scale detector of its kind and is designed to search for WIMP dark matter by measuring nuclear recoils from WIMP–nucleus scattering.
The CERN Axion Solar Telescope has reported important new exclusion limits on coupling of axions to photons.
The accelerating expansion of the universe, first realised 20 years ago, has been confirmed by numerous observations. Remarkably, whatever the source of the acceleration, it is the primary driver of t...
Astronomers have long contemplated the possibility that there may be forms of matter in the universe that are imperceptible, either because they are too far away, too dim or intrinsically invisible. L...
An interview with Erik Verlinde, who argues that dark matter is an illusion caused by an incomplete understanding of gravity.
The US Department of Energy has formally approved a key construction milestone for the LUX-ZEPLIN experiment.
