Colliding protons head-on

They won't pinch you and you won't find them on the beach. The name of the new radio-frequency crab cavities has nothing to do with their appearance and is merely illustrative of the effect they will have on circulating proton bunch...

The LHC normally collides protons into each other. If two protons travelling in opposite directions pass very close to one another within CMS or ATLAS, however, photons radiated from each proton can collide and produce new particles...

After over a month of preparation, the Large Hadron Collider could be circulating proton beams again as early as next week. Preparation has focused heavily on readying the LHC’s quench detection and protection systems, which keep th...

LHC begins colliding proton beams with beams made up of heavy ions

Academics / Physics : Physorg: Physics

Following seven successful months of colliding proton beams with each other in the search for new fundamental particles, the LHC today began colliding proton beams with beams made up of heavy ions – the nuclei of lead atoms.
