Latest Particle accelerators Stories
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment is now more frigid than deep space, making it one of the coldest locations in the Universe.
Controlling huge electromagnetic forces that have the potential to destroy the next generation of particle accelerators is the subject of a new paper by a University of Manchester physicist.
After a widely publicized helium leak shut down the Large Hadron Collider last year, engineers began installing an early warning system they hope will prevent any similar problems.
The US Department of Energy's (DOE's) Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility marked a step forward in the field of advanced particle accelerator technology with the successful test of the first US-built superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) niobium cavity to meet the exacting specifications of the proposed International Linear Collider (ILC).
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.
