Latest Elementary particle Stories
"For the first time we can actually see the structure of individual aerosol particles floating in air, their 'native habitat'," said DESY scientist Henry Chapman from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg.
Scientists have determined that previously undetected particles could be seen as they accumulate around black holes.
Recently analyzed data from the BaBar experiment may suggest possible flaws in the Standard Model of particle physics, the reigning description of how the universe works on subatomic scales.
Researchers at CERN are closing in on the so-called ‘God Particle’ that is the last major missing piece to the theoretical Standard Model of how the universe works at its most basic level.
The Director of CERN says that he is confident that his group will have proven the existence of the Higgs Boson before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is turned off for upgrades at year's end.
It has not discovered the Higgs Boson -- not yet, anyway -- but the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator has revealed a never-before-discovered particle comprised of three quarks.
After a search that has lasted roughly three-quarters of a century, researchers believe they have at long last discovered evidence of an elusive particle that could be its own anti-particle.
After a short winter break, physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the French-Swiss border have set a new world record by successfully smashing two 4 teraelectronvolt (TeV) proton beams together producing a total of 8 TeVs.
Scientists at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge have used light to help push electrons through a classically impenetrable barrier.
Some people like company. Others prefer to be alone.
- Emitting flashes of light; glittering.
