Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists have successfully tested a powerful new magnet that will be playing a big role in developing a new beam for CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Researchers collaborated to build a powerful superconducting quadrupole magnet to increase LHC luminosity by an order of magnitude. This new system will help the LHC produce 10 times more high-energy collisions than it was originally designed for. The HQ02a is the latest in the...

UC San Diego/Open Science Grid Collaboration Speeds Quest for Dark Matter Discovery Gordon, the unique supercomputer launched last year by the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, recently completed its most data-intensive task so far: rapidly processing raw data from almost one billion particle collisions as part of a project to help define the future research agenda for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Under a partnership between a team of...

Physicists Around The World Cheer The Discovery Of The Higgs Particle

Success at the world's largest particle accelerator LHC / Experiments involving scientists from Mainz University show first direct evidence of the Higgs boson The mystery of the origin of matter seems to have been solved. At the middle of last week, CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, announced the discovery of a new particle that could be the long sought-after Higgs boson. The particle has a mass of about 126 gigaelectron volts (GeV), roughly that of 126...

Physicists unveil the largest amount of data ever presented for the Higgs search Physicists have announced that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has produced yet more tantalizing hints for the existence of the Higgs boson. The European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, the international team of thousands of scientists–including many from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech)–unveiled for the first time all the data taken over the last year from the two...

  Physicists are hinting that the Higgs-Boson particle, sometimes referred to as the “God particle”, may be nonexistent. According to the AFP news agency, physicists announced at a European conference that a big atom-smasher experiment had shown tantalizing hints of the Higgs-Boson, as the search to identify the particle enters the final stretch with results expected late next year. Physicist Howard Gordon, deputy US ATLAS operations program manager told AFP,...

In a recent webcast from NSF, physicists from the LHC discussed the search for the Higgs boson in 2011 and beyond View a webcast with Gustaaf Brooijmans of Columbia University and the US ATLAS experiment, and Aaron Dominguez of the University of Nebraska and the US CMS experiment. This February, researchers will renew their search for one of the universe's most elusive mysteries, the Higgs boson--a hypothetical particle that if found would give an insight into why particles have certain...

Scientists working at the world's largest atom smasher said Tuesday the they believe they have discovered a new phenomenon while trying to unravel the universe's deepest secrets. One of the detectors in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment indicated that "some of the particles are intimately linked in a way not seen before in proton collisions," the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) said on its website. Physicist Guido Tonelli told his fellow scientists at a seminar...

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is giving physicists hopeful candidates in the hunt for the heaviest elementary particle known to science. According to BBC News, so far their observations have been leading them in that direction. If the observations can be confirmed, it would be a first for Europe as the top quark particle has only been generated in one lab in the US. Dr Arnaud Lucotte, from the French National Centre of Scientific Research (CNRS), said the discovery could help physicists...
