More precise measurements of the W boson
A hint of Higgs: An update from the LHC
The physics world was abuzz with some tantalizing news a couple of weeks ago. At a meeting of the European Physical Society in Grenoble, France, physicists -- including some from Caltech -- announced that ...
Physicists offer a solution to the puzzle of the origin of matter in the universe
Most of the laws of nature treat particles and antiparticles equally, but stars and planets are made of particles, or matter, and not antiparticles, or antimatter. That asymmetry, which favors matter to a very small degree, ...
Riddle of 'God particle' could be solved by 2012: CERN (Update)
Physicists said on Tuesday they believed that by the end of 2012 they could determine whether a theorised particle called the Higgs boson, which has unleashed a gruelling decades-long hunt, exists or not.
Boson samplers offering promise for new kinds of computing devices
Large Hadron Collider smashes another record
The world's biggest particle collider set a new record early Monday, a feat that should accelerate the quest to pinpoint the elusive particle known as the Higgs Boson, a senior physicist said.
Another Higgs rumor reminds us how science is correctly done
Possible signs of the Higgs remain in latest analyses (Update)
(PhysOrg.com) -- Two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider have nearly eliminated the space in which the Higgs boson could dwell, scientists announced in a seminar held at CERN today. However, the ATLAS ...
Searching for Susy: Collider to push physics frontier
Excitement is mounting at the world's largest proton smasher, where scientists are close to launching a superpowered hunt for particles that may change our understanding of the Universe.
Large Hadron Collider sets world record beam intensity
(PhysOrg.com) -- Around midnight this night CERN's Large Hadron Collider set a new world record for beam intensity at a hadron collider when it collided beams with a luminosity of 4.67 x 1032cm-2s-1. This exceeds the previous world ...
Cornell theorists continue the search for supersymmetry
(Phys.org) —It was a breakthrough with profound implications for the world as we know it: the Higgs boson, the elementary particle that gives all other particles their mass, discovered at the Large Hadron ...
Physicists tune Large Hadron Collider to find 'sweet spot' in high-energy proton smasher
Start up of the world's largest science experiment is underway—with protons traveling in opposite directions at almost the speed of light in the deep underground tunnel called the Large Hadron Collider ...
Broadest set of results to date about the properties of the Higgs boson
With the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) preparing to restart in a few months, data from its first run has already been bearing fruit.
World's largest particle collider busts record
The world's largest particle smasher broke the record for energy levels late Wednesday in a test run after a two-year upgrade, CERN announced Thursday.
