2014-04-13 05:21:58

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) 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. According to Maggie McKee of New Scientist, researchers conducting experiments at the LHC have confirmed the existence of a particle known as Z(4430). While physicists had previously...

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Time's quantum arrow has a preferred direction, new analysis shows Time marches relentlessly forward for you and me; watch a movie in reverse, and you´ll quickly see something is amiss. But from the point of view of a single, isolated particle, the passage of time looks the same in either direction. For instance, a movie of two particles scattering off of each other would look just as sensible in reverse — a concept known as time reversal...

Research spurs innovations in computing technology that drive advances to supercomputers An international collaboration of scientists has reported a landmark calculation of the decay process of a kaon into two pions, using breakthrough techniques on some of the world's fastest supercomputers. This is the same subatomic particle decay explored in a 1964 Nobel Prize-winning experiment performed at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), which revealed the first...

A new physics discovery explores why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe. The latest research findings, which involved significant contributions from physicists at the University of Melbourne, have been recently published in the prestigious journal Nature. The paper reveals that investigation into the process of B-meson decays has given insight into why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe. "B-mesons are a new frontier of investigation for us and have proved...

Blacksburg, Va., July 1, 2005 -- Physics researchers working at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) Laboratory in Japan have observed a new type of interaction among the most fundamental of particles, the quark. The scientists reported at the Symposium on Lepton-Photon Interactions at High Energies, June 30-July 5 in Uppsala, Sweden, that they had produced first evidence of a beauty quark converting to the lightest of quarks, the down quark. "Observation of this very rare...
