A University of Iowa physicist is at the forefront of the search for a missing particle that could prove whether the Higgs boson—believed to give mass to all matter—exists.
The ATLAS collaboration today reports the first measurement of the W boson mass using Large Hadron Collider (LHC) proton–proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV.
One of the largest projects being undertaken at the CERN research center near Geneva - the ATLAS Experiment - is about to be upgraded. ATLAS played a crucial role in the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. With a length ...
As part of one of the most ambitious quests in science a senior physicist at The University of Manchester has helped to narrow the search to find a ghost-like neutrino particle – its discovery promising to be even bigger ...
Scientists predict the existence of a new boson: New Madala boson might assist in the understanding of dark matter
Scientists at the High Energy Physics Group (HEP) of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg predict the existence of a new boson that might aid in the understanding of Dark Matter in the Universe.
Hopes for a new particle discovery that might have up-ended the standard model of physics were dashed on Friday, as scientists admitted that a "bump" in the data was actually just a "blip."
Scientists have come up empty-handed in their latest effort to find elusive dark matter, the plentiful stuff that helps galaxies like ours form.
A citizen science project, called HiggsHunters gives everyone the chance to help search for the Higgs boson's relatives.
Tom Kibble, a leading British physicist whose work helped lead to the discovery of the Higgs boson, died Thursday aged 83, his university in London said.
University of Texas at Arlington physicists are preparing the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility in Tennessee to support the analysis of data generated from the quadrillions of proton collisions ...
