New scattering data suggests that gluons make only a small contribution to the spin of protons and neutrons

Scientists have acquired more clues in the mystery of how the spin, or intrinsic angular momentum of a nucleon (proton or neutron), results from its constituent parts, quarks and gluons. Marco Stratmann at RIKEN?s Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science in Wako and co-workers have used new scattering data to determine that the contribution from gluons is likely to be small.

New algorithm that can optimize hybrid electricity generation systems

Engineers from the University of Zaragoza have developed an algorithm that can optimise hybrid electricity generation systems through combined use of renewable energies, such as photovoltaic and wind power, and non-renewables, such as diesel. Their study, published online in the magazine Renewable Energy, envisions storing the energy in batteries or hydrogen tanks.
