A UCSB physicist outlines how this unique phenomenon occurs in a condensed matter system UC Santa Barbara physicist Tarun Grover has provided definitive mathematical evidence for supersymmetry in a condensed matter system. Sought after in the realm of subatomic particles by physicists for several decades, supersymmetry describes a unique relationship between particles. “As yet, no one has found supersymmetry in our universe, including at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC),” said the...

Axion Search For Dark Matter
2013-11-07 08:36:41

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team at the University of Washington, led by Professor Leslie Rosenberg, is hunting for a theorized but never-before-seen elementary particle called an axion. The researchers will use the recently retooled, extremely sensitive detector that is currently in a testing and shakeout phase at UW's Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics Astrophysics. Physicists in the late 1970s first hypothesized the axion as a solution to a...

New Research May Expose New Aspects Of The Universe

University of Southern Denmark No one knows for sure, but it is not at all unlikely that the universe is constructed in a very different way than the usual theories and models of today predict. The most widely used model today cannot explain everything in the universe, and therefore there is a need to explore the parts of nature which the model cannot explain. This research field is called new physics, and it turns our understanding of the universe upside down. New research now makes the...

A University of Oklahoma-developed theory provides the rationale for the next-generation particle accelerator—the International Linear Collider. The discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Geneva Switzerland this past year prompted particle physicists to look ahead to the development of the ILC, an electron-positron collider designed to measure in detail all the properties of the newly discovered Higgs particle. Howard Baer, professor in the OU...

UC San Diego/Open Science Grid Collaboration Speeds Quest for Dark Matter Discovery Gordon, the unique supercomputer launched last year by the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, recently completed its most data-intensive task so far: rapidly processing raw data from almost one billion particle collisions as part of a project to help define the future research agenda for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Under a partnership between a team of...

Supersymmetry Physics Theory Fails Important Test
2012-11-12 16:48:13

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are on the verge of squashing an important physics theory known as supersymmetry (SUSY). The Supersymmetry theory helps to explain some of the inconsistencies in the traditional theory of subatomic physics. New observations reported at the Hadron Collider Physics conference in Kyoto, Japan are not consistent with many of the most likely models of the theory. Researchers had...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Now that the ℠God Particle´ has been discovered, is it time to pack up CERN´s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and move on to other projects? Not so fast, say physicists who are looking to upgrade the 4-year-old particle accelerator. CERN´s governing body has just approved plans that would shut down the LHC for two years while it gets a $1.9 billion upgrade. The improvements would theoretically increase the power of...

A better understanding of the universe will be the outgrowth of the discovery of the Higgs boson, according to a team of University of Oklahoma researchers.   The team predicts the discovery will lead to supersymmetry or SUSY–an extension of the standard model of particle physics.  SUSY predicts new matter states or super partners for each matter particle already accounted for in the standard model.  SUSY theory provides an important new step to a better...

Higgs May Be Detected As Early As Christmas
2011-09-02 12:30:05

  Researchers at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) said that the hunt for the Higgs particle is well ahead of schedule, according to BBC News. They said earlier this year they would either discover the Higgs or confirm is does not exist by the end of 2012. The Higgs Boson is the particle that in the physics "Standard Model" allows other particles to have mass. The discovery or elimination of the particle is one of the LHC's major objectives, and it may come as early as...

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, according to various media reports on Monday. According to AFP reporter Marlowe Hood, experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), located at the CERN headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, have yet to discover the Higgs boson, a sub-atomic particle believed to have played an important role in the creation...

String Theory -- A string theory is a physical model whose fundamental building blocks are extended objects (strings, membranes and higher-dimensional objects) rather than points. String theories are able to avoid problems, such as infinite energy density, associated with the presence of mathematical points in a physical theory. The term 'string theory' properly refers to both the 26 dimensional bosonic string theories and to the 10 dimensional superstring theories discovered by...

  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
