Latest Subatomic particle Stories
Physicists have trapped and cooled exotic particles called excitons so effectively that they condensed and cohered to form a giant matter wave.
Scientists said on Thursday that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has turned up a heavier variant of a sub-atomic particle first discovered 25 years ago.
A team of scientists have made it easier to study atomic or subatomic-scale properties of the building blocks of matter (which also include protons, neutrons and electrons) known as fermions by slowing down the movement of a large quantity of gaseous atoms at ultra-low temperature.
The scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have been unsuccessful in proving the existence of the so-called "God particle" so far, but they are getting close.
Physicists working at the University of California, Santa Barbara and the University of Konstanz in Germany have developed a breakthrough in the use of diamond in quantum physics, marking an important step toward quantum computing.
The long, slow decay of carbon-14 allows archaeologists to accurately date the relics of history back to 60,000 years.
The antimatter equivalent of helium nuclei has been produced by an international team of physicists working with the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York.
Physicists study rare particles to learn why the universe has more matter than antimatter.
Researchers used Einstein's famous E=mc2 equation and the Large Hadron Collider to recreate a miniature version of the event at the origins of our Universe, and the first findings from their work were published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
This month physicist Juan Collar and his associates are taking their attempt to unmask the secret identity of dark matter into a Canadian mine more than a mile underground.
