A recently-accepted article - Demonstration of Communication Using Neutrinos - that appeared in World Scientific's journal Modern Physics Letters A (MPLA) has been featured in well-respected magazines such as The Economist, Popular Science and New Scientist.
The article describes the invention of the first neutrino-powered telephone by a group of Fermilab physicists that could possibly pave the way for other applications like broadcasting and communicating with other intelligent life forms in contrast to photons, neutrinos are able to pass through matter almost undisturbed. The research has brought considerable positive spotlight on the practicality of particle physics since it has been looked upon as otherwise by its critics.
Dr Kok Khoo Phua, the Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of World Scientific, also a high-energy physicist by training, said, "We are very proud of MPLA; this piece of news is a testament to the quality of the journal and its capable team of editors who ensure the timely publication of the journal."
In conjunction with this announcement, World Scientific will grant free access rights to this article until the end of April 2012. The article can be accessed via http://dx.doi.org/10.1142/S0217732312500770.
