A New Type Subatomic Particle Made Up Of 6 Quarks | Dibaryon

Baryon - New Type Subatomic Particle

Researchers predicted a new type of dibaryon – particle with 6 quarks instead of usual 3.  To do this, they created quantum chromodynamics simulations on K computer.   It is made up of 2 Omega baryons, called di-Omega, containing 3 quarks each. Baryons are heavy subatomic particles that contain 3 quarks. The most common baryons are neutron ...

New Robotic Spine Exoskeleton (RoSE) Could Help Treat Spine Deformities

Robotic Spine Exoskeleton

RoSE is a dynamic spine brace that characterizes the 3 dimensional stiffness of the human torso.  It identifies and treats spinal deformities. The system consists of 12-degree-of-freedom supervised via 12 motors. Spinal deformities, like kyphosis and idiopathic scoliosis, are abnormalities of formation and alignment of the curvature in the spine. There are more than 4 million cases ...
