Latest Particle accelerators Stories
A lightning researcher at the University of Bath has discovered that during thunderstorms, giant natural particle accelerators can form 40 km above the surface of the Earth.
Officials at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have created the highest energy levels yet achieved in a particle accelerator.
A worldwide team of researchers, including 10 from Texas A&M University, have for the first time created a particle that is believed to have been in existence immediately after the creation of the universe â€“ the so-called "Big Bang" â€“ and it could lead to new questions and answers about some of the basic laws of physics because in essence, it creates a new form of matter.
Scientists at the US Department of Energyâ€™s Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York report they have created the hottest temperature in the lab -- 4 trillion degrees Celsius -- which is thought to be consistent with actual temperatures that existed when the universe was born.
CERN's Large Hadron Collider set a new record this week in its quest to recreate Big Bang conditions and allow scientists to gain a better understanding of the nature of matter.
The largest atom smasher in the world has caught its first high-energy collision of protons, CERN announced on Wednesday.
According to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is expected to be restarted by this weekend after over a year of repairs.
A time-varying bubble of electron density in the wake of an ultra-intense laser pulse traps the ambient plasma electrons and accelerates them to high energy producing collimated monoenergetic beams for medical, technological, and physics applications.
Scientists leverage special relativity to speed up computational modeling and open a new era for designing advanced laser-plasma accelerators.
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.
