Trapping charged particles with laser light
In the past decades, setups for trapping single particles have played a key role in high ... either to capture charged atoms (i.e. ions) in strong radiofrequency fields, or to keep neutral atoms in place by light fields. Dr. Tobias Schätz, leader of ...
Why does Matter take up Space?
And that’s why matter takes up space, no matter whether it’s charged or neutral ... Yet, despite that incredible gravity compressing the white dwarf, the atoms refuse to buckle. Why? Because the atoms deep inside the star have their electrons bumping ...
Charged particles can be accelerated using light, leading the way for more compact particle accelerators
1: More impetus for electrons: The charged particles fly from the source ... In order to be able to build more compact particle accelerators, the electric field driving the particles would have to be strengthened. This can be illustrated by a picture ...
How CERN's discovery of exotic particles may affect astrophysics
You may have heard that CERN announced the ... In the same way, combining a red, green and blue quark gives you a particle which is color neutral. This similarity to the color properties of light is why quark charge is named after colors.
How CERN’s Discovery of Exotic Particles May Affect Astrophysics
You may have heard that CERN announced the ... green and blue quark gives you a particle which is color neutral. This similarity to the color properties of light is why quark charge is named after colors. Combining a quark of each color into groups ...
