Neutrinos: Ghostly particles with unstable egos

So far it is unknown which rules neutrinos follow when they alter their identity. A study in which scientists of the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Germany, participated has now revealed ...

ATLAS Experiment searches for new symmetries of nature

The fundamental forces of nature are intimately related to corresponding symmetries. For example, the properties of electromagnetic interactions (or force) can be derived by requiring the theory that describes it to remain ...

Atomic parity violation research reaches new milestone

A reflection always reproduces objects as a complete mirror image, rather than just its individual parts or individual parts in a completely different orientation. It's all or nothing, the mirror can't reflect just a little. ...

Using an electron to probe the tiny magnetic core of an atom

Precise information about the magnetic properties of nuclei is critical for studies of what's known as the 'weak force.' While people do not feel this force in the same way they feel electricity or gravity, its effects are ...

The decades-long search for the Higgs

(Phys.org) -- It was a little over two years ago that the Large Hadron Collider kicked off its search for the Higgs boson. But the hunt for the Higgs really began decades ago with the realization of a puzzle to be solved, ...
