What is the Neutrino Observatory Project?

A neutrino is an electrically neutral fermion. Fermion is a particle that follows Fermi-Dirac statistics, which describes a distribution of particles over energy states in systems that consists of identical or similar particles that obey the Pauli exclusion principle. In ..

Applications of Neutrinos

The neutrino is a tiny elementary particle, but it is not part of the atom. They exist in nature. Neutrino has a very tiny mass, no charge and spins half. It interacts very weakly with other matter particles so weakly ..

Baryons and Omega C-0 Particles

In March 2017, five new sub-atomic particles were discovered by Large Hadron Collider scientists at CERN. These particles have been collectively called Omega C0 and have been named Oc(3000)0, Oc(3050)0, Oc(3066)0, Oc(3090)0 b Oc(3119)0 as per their masses megaelectronvolts (MeV). ..

Neutrinos and Neutrino Oscillation

Neutrinos are one of the elementary particles, which make up the universe. They are similar to electrons except that they do not carry electric charge. As they are electrically neutral, they are not affected by the electromagnetic forces like electrons ..

Scientist create mini Saturns from charged liquid droplets

Scientists from Northwestern University in the United States have created miniature versions of Saturn, complete with rings, by electrifying tiny droplets of fluids. Electrospraying Effect When a drop of electrically conductive liquid is exposed to an electric field, the droplet ..
