At the LHC, charmed twins will soon be more common than singles

In the range of energies penetrated by the LHC accelerator, a new mechanism of particle creation is becoming more prominent, say scientists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow. ...

"Electron screening puzzle" solved

The energy production in stars utlimately depends on certain nuclear reactions at energies close to the so-called Gamow-peak that affect strongly the chemical composition of stars and the surrounding planetary systems. These ...

Physicists posit quantum gravity's rainbow

When white light is passed through a prism, the rainbow on the other side reveals a rich palette of colors. Theorists from the faculty of physics, University of Warsaw have shown that in models of the universe using any of ...

Lab scientists discover five new nuclei

Lawrence Livermore scientists, in conjunction with international researchers, have discovered five new atomic nuclei to be added the chart of nuclides.

Latest experiment at Large Hadron Collider reports first results

After a two-year hiatus, the Large Hadron Collider, the largest and most powerful particle accelerator in the world, began its second run of experiments in June, smashing together subatomic particles at 13 teraelectronvolts ...

Code speedup strengthens researchers' grasp of neutrons

Neutrons are notoriously slippery subatomic particles. On their own, they break down in a matter of minutes, but within the confines of the atom's nucleus, neutrons are a foundational piece of nearly all known types of matter ...
