In search for dark matter components, IU physicists edge closer by watching radiation shifts


A team of physicists at IU Bloomington is hunting for nuclear magnetic resonance frequency shifts 100 billion times smaller than those in a single hydrogen proton as part of a search for new particles in nature that are very weakly coupled to matter. Full Story >>
