First observation of free cyclotron radiation from single electrons

First observation of free cyclotron radiation from single electrons at CENPA by a team of Project 8 physicists has been cited by Physics World as one of the top-10 scientific breakthroughs of the year 2015.

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2015 was awarded jointly to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald "for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass".

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2015 was awarded jointly to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald "for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass".  Art McDonald led the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory Project that solved the long-standing solar neutrino problem by showing that it was caused by an unexpected property of neutrinos: they have mass. CENPA physicists contributed to this experiment, in particular designing and building an array of neutron detectors to make SNO sensitive to all flavors of neutrinos.

Project 8 observes cyclotron radiation emitted by single electrons

Project 8 observes cyclotron radiation emitted by single electrons in a magnetic trap.  The method may form the basis for a new measurement of the mass of the neutrino.
