Latest Particle accelerators Stories
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.
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.
