Latest Particle accelerators Stories
The Large Hadron Collider was officially shut down early Thursday morning, beginning a two-year period of repair and upgrades.
For the last four years Congress and the White House have been unable to pass a federal budget, settling each time for continuing resolutions. However, such stopgaps keep funding levels flat, or even, accounting for inflation, in decline.
CERN announced this week it will be shutting down the LHC after three successful years of operation, giving the particle smasher a break until 2015.
Solvents are omnipresent in the chemical industry, and are a major environmental and safety concern. Therefore the large interest in mechanochemistry: an energy-efficient alternative that avoids using bulk solvents and uses high-frequency milling to drive reactions.
An international team of researchers has created ionized xenon atoms so positively charged that scientists involved in the study are now saying the existing theories need to be reexamined.
Studies by Berkeley Lab scientists of electron beam quality in laser plasma accelerators include novel tests for slice-energy spread
Berkeley Lab’s lead in laser plasma acceleration research continues with new benchmarks for electron beam quality
BELLA Laser Achieves One Pulse Per Second For World Record Power
As record-setting heat and wildfires continue to consume Colorado, one team of scientists has created a temperature so hot the Sun would melt.
For the first time, Lawrence Livermore researchers and international collaborators have peered into the makeup of complex airborne particulate matter so small that it can be transported into human lungs -- usually without a trace.
