Searching for the A boson with CMS

I am quite happy to report today that the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider has just published a new search which fills a gap in studies of extended Higgs boson sectors. It is a search for the decay of the A boson into Zh pairs, where the Z in turn decays to […]

Two More Particles Spotted At Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider has helped staff spot two previously unseen particles. Both are known as baryons and are made up of three quarks. The two baryons have the somewhat uncatchy names of  Xi_b’- and Xi_b-. The existence of both had previously been predicted by the quark model, but they had yet to be seen in […]

CERN frees LHC data

Anyone can access collision data from the Large Hadron Collider through the new CERN Open Data Portal. Today CERN launched its Open Data Portal, which makes data from real collision events produced by LHC experiments available to the...Show More Summary

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider discover two new supermassive particles

Clearly, we still have a lot more to learn about the universe: The Large Hadron Collider, famed for its discovery of the Higgs boson, has discovered two new subatomic particles. Known as Xi_b'- and Xi_b-, the two particles had previously...Show More Summary

Scientists discover two new particles at Large Hadron Collider

Welcome to the family! Scientists using CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Europe have discovered two new subatomic particles.

Two New Subatomic Particles Have Been Discovered At CERN

4 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Particle physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider have detected two new subatomic particles that were predicted to exist but never seen. The discovery of the two new baryon particles stands to deepen our understanding of the universe. Read more...

LHCb experiment finds new particles

A new LHCb result adds two new composite particles to the quark model. Today the LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of two new particles, each consisting of three quarks. The particles, known as the Xi_b'- and Xi_b-, were predicted to exist by the quark model but had never been observed. Show More Summary

A Radically New Particle Accelerator Could Have 500 Times The Power

If you know anything about the Large Hadron Collider, you know that it is huge. Massive. 17 miles of tunnels under Switzerland. Traditional accelerators need all that space to get particles to smash into each other at close to the speed of light. Show More Summary

Seven physicists found out, by turning data from CERN’s experiments in to songs, then playing them in situ Helping scientists to discover the Higgs boson was, it seems, just one of the Large Hadron Collider’s talents. It turns out that CERN’s particle accelerator can write a decent tune too. Seven...

A Higgs-gravity connection may leave traces in white dwarfs

(Phys.org) —The discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012 marked an important step toward understanding the origin of the mass of fundamental particles. Since mass plays a major role in gravity, the Higgs could also reveal insights into the nature of gravity. Show More Summary

What it Takes to Build the Largest Particle Collider Ever Made

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

The Large Hadron Collider is an enormous feat of engineering: A 17-mile tunnel packed with fragile scientific instruments that took 25 years to imagine and 10 to construct. But now, scientists at CERN have chosen an engineering firm to build its successor—a collider that will be triple the size of the LHC. Read more...
