Start of Most Sensitive Search Yet for Dark Matter Axion Thanks to low-noise superconducting quantum amplifiers — developed by the Lab’s John Clarke — physicists are embarking on the most sensitive search yet for axions, one of the top dark matter candidates. The Axion Dark Matter Experiment is the world’s first and only experiment to have achieved the necessary sensitivity to “hear” the telltale signs of dark matter axions. More>
Physicists Discover New Quantum Electronic Material Physicists from MIT, Harvard University, and Berkeley Lab have for the first time produced a kagome metal — an electrically conducting crystal, made from layers of iron and tin atoms, with each atomic layer arranged in the repeating pattern of a kagome lattice. This kagome pattern — named for a Japanese basket weave — exhibits exotic, quantum behavior. More>
