A tiny amount of squeezing or stretching can produce a big boost in catalytic performance, according to a new study led by scientists at Stanford and SLAC.

SLAC physicist Frederico Fiuza and his team are conducting thorough investigations of plasma physics to discern the fundamental processes that accelerate particles. The answers could provide an understanding of how cosmic rays gain their energy and how similar acceleration mechanisms could be probed in the laboratory and used for practical applications.

“As a study of reactors, this is a tour de force,” says SLAC theorist Alexander Friedland. “This is an explicit demonstration that the composition of the reactor fuel has an impact on the neutrinos.”

Water-splitting systems require a very efficient catalyst to speed up the chemical reaction that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen, while preventing the gases from recombining back into water.

A mysterious gamma-ray glow at the center of the Milky Way is most likely caused by pulsars; that’s the conclusion of a new analysis by an international team of astrophysicists, including researchers from SLAC. The findings cast doubt on previous interpretations of the signal as a potential sign of dark matter.
