Nobel Prize winning physicists, including a 2013 Nobel laureate who predicted the Higgs boson, and the discoverers of quarks and “color” join other distinguished speakers at "50 Years of Quarks & Color," an April 11-12 University of Maryland symposium on discoveries that sparked a physics revolution. Reporters are invited to the sold-out event. (PRWEB) April 07, 2014 Two Nobel Prize winning physicists, including a 2013 Nobel laureate who predicted the Higgs boson, and...

International Team Of LHC And Tevatron Scientists Join Forces
2014-03-19 17:36:39

Fermilab Scientists working on the world’s leading particle collider experiments have joined forces, combined their data and produced the first joint result from Fermilab’s Tevatron and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), past and current holders of the record for most powerful particle collider on Earth. Scientists from the four experiments involved—ATLAS, CDF, CMS and DZero—announced their joint findings on the mass of the top quark today at the Rencontres de Moriond...

Research spurs innovations in computing technology that drive advances to supercomputers An international collaboration of scientists has reported a landmark calculation of the decay process of a kaon into two pions, using breakthrough techniques on some of the world's fastest supercomputers. This is the same subatomic particle decay explored in a 1964 Nobel Prize-winning experiment performed at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), which revealed the first...

The world´s most precise measurement of the mass of the W boson, one of nature´s elementary particles, has been achieved by scientists from the CDF and DZero collaborations at the Department of Energy´s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The new measurement is an important, independent constraint of the mass of the theorized Higgs boson. It also provides a rigorous test of the Standard Model that serves as the blueprint for our world, detailing the properties of the...

Physicists at the U.S.-based Fermilab have produced a new particle that is a heavier relative of the neutron. The Batavia, Illinois atom smasher found the neutral Xi-sub-b by smashing particles together around a 4-mile ring at near light speed.  Physicists knew the particle existed, but it is the first time researchers have observed it firsthand.  Measuring the properties of particles like the neutral Xi-sub-b allows physicists to understand how quarks interact to form matter....

At the Large Hadron Collider at CERN protons crash into each other at incredibly high energies in order to 'smash' the protons and to study the elementary particles of nature "“ including quarks. Quarks are found in each proton and are bound together by forces which cause all other known forces of nature to fade. To understand the effects of these strong forces between the quarks is one of the greatest challenges in modern particle physics. New theoretical results from the Niels Bohr...

Fermilab team of physicists analyze two-lepton data New high-energy particle research by a team working with data from Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory further heightens the uncertainty about the exact nature of a key theoretical component of modern physics "” the massive fundamental particle called the Higgs boson. Analysis of data from particle collisions resulting in two leptons helps improve measurements of the mass of another heavy subatomic particle called the top quark, says...

In recent years several Large-Scale Scientific Facilities (LSSF) for nuclear, hadronic, and particle physics have been upgraded and constructed in China. The Cooling Storage Ring of Heavy Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou (HIRFL-CSR) was completed in 2007, which aims at the exploration of physics with radioactive ion beams (including the structure of unstable nuclei, isospin dependence of nuclear matter, heavy-ion fusion, superheavy nuclei synthesis), hadronic physics, physics of high-energy...

At a recent physics seminar at the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Fermilab physicist Pat Lukens of the CDF experiment announced the observation of a new particle, the Omega-sub-b (ÃŽ©b). The particle contains three quarks, two strange quarks and a bottom quark (s-s-b). It is an exotic relative of the much more common proton and has about six times the proton's mass.The observation of this "doubly strange" particle, predicted by the Standard...
