Latest Hadron 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.
For decades, physicists have searched in vain for exotic bound states comprising more than three quarks.
The Large Hadron Collider has already played an essential role in the discovery of the so-called God particle, and now the world’s largest particle collider may have helped scientists discover a new form of matter known as the tetraquark.
From matching wings on butterflies to the repeating six-point pattern of snowflakes, symmetries echo through nature, even down to the smallest building blocks of matter.
Scientists working at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider are gaining a better understanding of the primordial universe through experimentation involving the use of heavy ions.
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.
Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have set a new record for the calculation of scattering amplitudes.
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.
Researchers use the NSF-supported Ranger supercomputer to explore alternative particle theories.
Physicists study rare particles to learn why the universe has more matter than antimatter.
