(ORDO NEWS) — Physicists from the United States simulated the conditions under which axions (hypothetical particles of black matter) could form – it turned out that their mass should be twice as large as previously thought. Scientific article published in the journal Nature Communications.
The study was conducted by scientists from the American University of California, Princeton University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
According to their calculations, the mass of an axion is 40-180 microelectron volts. This size does not allow the particle to be fixed using a microwave resonant chamber.
The researchers noted that the axion can be detected by a plasma haloscope.
Earlier, two researchers from Canada and the United States said that the moon may be littered with craters from miniature black holes, the study of which will help to understand the nature of dark matter.
