Latest Large Electron–Positron Collider Stories
A two-year continuous run through late 2011 will prove whether the â€œBig Bang" particle collider at CERN can shed light on the mystery of what gives mass to matter.
First-ever paper on Large Hadron Collider proton collisions published online in European Physical Journal C.
Engineers have successfully injected beams of particles into two sections of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), marking the first time particle beams have been inside the LHC since it was shut down in September 2008.
The Large Hadron Collider will not become a white elephant, despite having operated just one week in the year since its debut, scientists in Switzerland said. The world's most powerful atom smasher began operation a year ago this month near Geneva amid great expectations it would recreate the conditions of the universe at its earliest infancy.
MONTREAL, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Opal-RT Technologies Inc.
The territory where the Higgs boson may be found continues to shrink. The latest analysis of data from the CDF and DZero collider experiments at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermilab now excludes a significant fraction of the allowed Higgs mass range established by earlier measurements.
When it is fully up and running, the four massive detectors on the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN particle-physics lab near Geneva are expected to produce up to 15 million gigabytes, aka 15 petabytes, of data every year.
By EDD McCRACKEN EDINBURGH THE technology used in the search for the "God particle", which got under way in Switzerland last week, should have radical implications for how cancer is treated in Scotland, according to one of the top scientists involved in the project.
A spokesman for the world's most powerful physics experiment said part of the computer system of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was hacked into last Wednesday.
By Andy McSmith The world watched and waited for the greatest experiment in history to begin.
