Latest Gluon Stories
Physicists working with the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment at CERN have made two new discoveries: subatomic particles which they are describing as cousins to the neutron and proton.
Researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory simulated the birth of the universe using Livermore's 5-petaflop Vulcan high performance computer.
In September 2012, the Large Hadron Collider conducted a short run of collisions between protons and lead nuclei. The roughly two million events recorded were set to serve as a baseline for lead-lead collisions anticipated for next year. However, these events produced an unexpected result.
How liquid can a fluid be?
Researchers at Switzerland’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are setting aside four weeks to investigate the conditions of the early universe in more detail than ever before and taking a break from searching for the Higgs boson.
By comparing theory with data from STAR, Berkeley Lab scientists and their colleagues map phase changes in the quark-gluon plasma.
Researchers use the NSF-supported Ranger supercomputer to explore alternative particle theories.
Direct measurements allow detailed look at how quarks of different flavors contribute to spin.
Several years after Duke University researchers announced spectacular behavior of a low density ultracold gas cloud, researchers at Brookhaven National Laboratory have observed strikingly similar properties in a very hot and dense plasma "fluid" created to simulate conditions when the universe was about one millionths of a second old.
British poet William Blake once wrote that a world was contained in a grain of sand.
