Latest Particle accelerators Stories
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.
The mysteries of the universe will remain unknown for a few months longer after the CERN announcement that the giant particle collider will restart in November.
The world's largest particle accelerator, featured in Angels & Demons making antimatter, is riddled with electrical problems, European officials concede. As a result, it may be years before the $9 billion Large Hadron Collider, located in suburban Geneva, Switzerland, produces groundbreaking science, officials acknowledge. This science is includes identifying the dark matter that astronomers say makes up 25 percent of the cosmos and exploring the existence of dimensions beyond the three...
Science and technology are becoming increasingly involved in the world of art.
The world's biggest atom smasher will be put to the test once more in October after scientists have conducted tests and set up additional safety precautions to stop any further mistakes that halted the $10 billion machine after its startup in 2008, the operator announced on Saturday.
U.S. and British researchers have linked changes in the distribution of metal ions in the brain to Parkinson's disease. The findings, presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Chicago -- by Dr.
LITTLETON, Mass., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Still River Systems announced today the successful operation of the world's highest field, high energy cyclotron magnet.
Researchers say a new facility opening later this year at Britain's Diamond Light Source synchrotron may revolutionize science. Officials said the powerful new experimental station called the Joint Engineering, Environmental and Processing beamline will carry out experiments in a variety of scientific areas, including biology and physical and chemical science. The versatility of JEEP will open up exciting new opportunities in many fields of science due to its extremely high flux, high energy...
A new facility opening later this year at the Diamond synchrotron is set to revolutionize world heritage science.
UK scientists have successfully demonstrated energy recovery on the ALICE advanced particle accelerator design, potentially paving the way for new accelerators using a fraction of the energy required under conventional methods.
