Gamma rays will reach beyond the limits of light



Gothenburg, Sweden (SPX) Oct 23, 2017
Researchers have discovered a new way to produce high energy photon beams. The new method makes it possible to produce these gamma rays in a highly efficient way, compared with today's technique. The obtained energy is a billion times higher than the energy of photons in visible light. These high intensity gamma rays significantly exceed all known limits, and pave the way towards new fundamental studies. "When we exceed the limit of what is currently possible, we can see deeper into the basic elem ... read more

Life on Earth is impossible without photosynthesis.

However, quantification of photosynthesis at the ecosystem-to-global scale remains uncertain. Now an international ... more
