Researchers at RIKEN, Japan's flagship research institution, have successfully devised the world's first experimental technique for measuring ground-state hyperfine transitions of antihydrogen. By enabling scientists to test fundamental theories of symmetry and gravity, the new technique promises to shed light on some of the most profound mysteries of our universe. (PRWeb UK) December 6, 2010 New technique for antihydrogen synthesis promises answers to mysteries of antimatter Researchers...

Physicists working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Wednesday that they had successfully trapped and stored antimatter atoms for the first time ever. Scientists from the Geneva, Switzerland-based research organization, in association with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley, trapped a substance known as antihydrogen--the antimatter equivalent of hydrogen. The international...

New constraints on the elusive Higgs particle are more stringent than ever before. Scientists of the CDF and DZero collider experiments at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermilab revealed their latest Higgs search results Monday July 26 at the International Conference on High Energy Physics, held in Paris from July 22-28. Their results rule out a significant fraction of the allowed mass range established by earlier experiments. The Fermilab experiments now exclude a Higgs particle with a...

UC Riverside physicists involved in the international research; new result brings us closer to understanding the universe and its origins Why is there matter in the universe and not antimatter, its opposite? Physicists at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, including John Ellison, a professor of physics at UC Riverside, have announced that they have found evidence for a significant violation of matter-antimatter symmetry in decays of B-mesons, which are exotic particles produced in high...

Physicists at Fermilab have discovered a clue as to why the world around us is composed of normal matter and not anti-matter. Today, anti-matter is rare, but it can be produced by atom smashers, in nuclear reactions, or by cosmic rays. However, physicists believe the Big Bang should have produced equal amounts of matter and its opposite. The DZero experiment at Fermilab in Illinois has now produced results that provide a clue as to what happened to all the anti-matter. Many...

First-ever paper on Large Hadron Collider proton collisions published online in European Physical Journal C The first paper on proton collisions in the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) - designed to provide the highest energy ever explored with particle accelerators - is published online this week in Springer's European Physical Journal C. On 23 November 2009, during the early commissioning of the CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) LHC "“ which was built in the circular...

The world's largest particle accelerator, featured in Angels & Demons making antimatter, is riddled with electrical problems, European officials concede. As a result, it may be years before the $9 billion Large Hadron Collider, located in suburban Geneva, Switzerland, produces groundbreaking science, officials acknowledge. This science is includes identifying the dark matter that astronomers say makes up 25 percent of the cosmos and exploring the existence of dimensions beyond the three...

At a recent physics seminar at the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Fermilab physicist Pat Lukens of the CDF experiment announced the observation of a new particle, the Omega-sub-b (ÃŽ©b). The particle contains three quarks, two strange quarks and a bottom quark (s-s-b). It is an exotic relative of the much more common proton and has about six times the proton's mass.The observation of this "doubly strange" particle, predicted by the Standard...

Scientists of the CDF experiment at the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced March 17 that they have found evidence of an unexpected particle whose curious characteristics may reveal new ways that quarks can combine to form matter. The CDF physicists have called the particle Y(4140), reflecting its measured mass of 4140 Mega-electron volts. Physicists did not predict its existence because Y(4140) appears to flout nature's known rules for fitting quarks and...

A group of 28 scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) have observed particle collisions that produce single top quarks. The observation resulted from proton-antiproton collisions measured by the DZero detector in Fermilab's Tevatron, currently the world's most powerful operating particle accelerator. The discovery of the single top quark confirms critical parameters of particle physics, including the total number of quarks, and is...


Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
