New vigour in quest for Higgs boson
Heartened by a glimpse of what may be the Higgs boson, scientists at the CERN physics lab are smashing particles with new vigour in a quest to understand why matter has mass and other riddles of the natural ...

(PhysOrg.com) -- Results presented by the LHCb collaboration this evening at the annual Rencontres de Moriond conference, held this year in La Thuile, Italy, have put one of the most stringent limits to date on ...
Physics group looks ahead past LHC to LEP3
Hitches emerge as culprit in 'faster-than-light' particle (Update)
Scientists who last year found particles that appeared to break the Universe's speed limit are looking at two technical issues that could have skewed the controversial finding, CERN said Thursday.
Search for first Web page takes detour into US
For the European physicists who created the World Wide Web, preserving its history is as elusive as unlocking the mysteries of how the universe began.
More clues soon in hunt for Higgs particle
More clues are expected next week in the worldwide hunt for an elusive sub-atomic particle, the Higgs boson, that is the missing piece in the standard model of physics.
World's smallest droplet
(Phys.org) —Physicists may have created the smallest drops of liquid ever made in the lab. That possibility has been raised by the results of a recent experiment conducted by Vanderbilt physicist Julia Velkovska and her ...

(Phys.org)—The latest research findings from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN show that the CMS and ATLAS experiments are now reporting that the significance of their observation of the Higgs-like ...
CERN's ISOLTRAP reveals new magic in the atomic nucleus
(Phys.org) —The ISOLTRAP collaboration has measured the mass of exotic calcium nuclei using a new instrument installed at the ISOLDE facility at CERN. The measurements, published on 20 June in the journal Nature, clearl ...
CERN experiments put Standard Model to stringent test
New results to be presented at the EPS-HEP conference in Stockholm, Sweden, this afternoon have put the Standard Model of particle physics to one of its most stringent tests to date. The CMS and LHCb experiments at CERN's ...
