UC Irvine-led team is first to detect neutrinos made by a particle collider

Discovery promises to help physicists understand nature of universe’s most abundant particle

UCI physicist proposes new experiment to detect dark matter in our solar system

SpaceQ mission involves atomic clocks on spacecraft placed close to the sun

UCI scientists discover how galaxies can exist without dark matter

In simulations, collisions cause smaller star groupings to lose material

The FASER particle detector that received CERN approval to be installed at the Large Hadron Collider in 2019 has recently been augmented with an instrument to detect neutrinos.

UCI-led team of physicists detects signs of neutrinos at Large Hadron Collider

Scientific first at CERN facility a preview of upcoming 3-year research campaign

Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument team begins 3D mapping of universe

UCI astronomers help gather and study data from more than 30 million galaxies

UCI-led study rules out dark matter destruction as origin of extra radiation in galaxy center

Exhaustive emissions modeling by global physicists narrows down particle candidates

Astronomers find atypically evolved galaxy with tightly packed dark matter at its core

Using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, UCI astronomers have identified a galaxy with an unexpectedly high amount of dark matter at its core. Descended from a family of galaxies called “red nuggets” that formed relatively soon after the Big Bang but were stalled in their growth about 10 billion years ago, Markarian 1216 has […]

UCI physics debuts in prime time

If you’re planning on tuning into “The Big Bang Theory” for a few laughs this Thursday evening, you may also get to see how a team of UCI physicists proposes to detect dark matter and forces in the universe. Based on a quirky group of Caltech researchers, the hit CBS TV comedy often features in […]
