In fact, ST's patented solution meets both of these key requirements: by redesigning the structure of the basic SRAM memory cell used in System-on-Chip semiconductor devices, ST has developed a new technology that is substantially as fast and cost-effective as conventional SoC technologies but is also virtually immune to the effects of stray nuclear particles.
Mr MacDonald told the court that, between 1976 and the end of 2006, a total of 1,401 nuclear particles had been recovered by UKAEA from the foreshore and nearby Sandside Beach.

Close helps those whose reach exceeds their grasp of particle physics, explaining what we now understand of the nature of the universe, atoms, the nucleus, the forces of nature, nuclear particles and what he calls the "eight-fold way," quarks, quantum chromodynamics, the electroweak force, charm, quantum foresight, CP violation, neutrinos, the bits beyond the standard model, and the relationship among cosmology, particle physics and the big bang, which is where one suspects the Hadron Collider could be especially handy.

ST will supply specially designed silicon sensors that will detect nuclear particles generated in the LHC experiments, including experiments designed to detect the particle known as the Higgs Boson whose existence, if verified, has crucial implications for theoretical physics.
If experiments confirm mass loss for all nuclear particles, "it's a paradigm shift in the way you view nuclear structure," comments Anthony Thomas, a nuclear theorist at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Newport News, Va.
The fact that electrons, which aren't nuclear particles, respond to a nuclear force at all stems from a deep connection between the electromagnetic and weak forces (SN: 10/16/99, p.
