LHC physicist takes on new type of collisions

A former Large Hadron Collider researcher brings his knowledge of high-energy collisions to a new EA SPORTS NHL hockey game. After years of particle physics research—first for the D0 experiment at Fermilab near Chicago and later for the ATLAS experiment at CERN near Geneva—Michele Petteni faced a dilemma.

LHC research, presented in tangible tidbits

Students working on their PhDs at the Large Hadron Collider explain their research with snacks, board games and Legos. Concepts in particle physics can be hard to visualize. But a series of videos on the US LHC YouTube channel endeavors...Show More Summary

Neutrino detectors could help curb nuclear weapons activity

Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland and even in the fictional world of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" look to subatomic particles called neutrinos to answer the big questions about the universe. Now, a group of scientists...Show More Summary

What happens if you get hit by the main beam of a particle accelerator like the LHC?

I don't know about you, but ever since I started covering the Large Hadron Collider and other large-scale particle accelerators for ExtremeTech, I've always morbidly wondered: What would happen if a scientist was accidentally hit byShow More Summary

China to Build Colossal Particle Collider to Dwarf Large Hadron Collider

For decades, Europe and the United States have led the way when it comes to high-energy particle colliders. But a proposal by China that is quietly gathering momentum has raised the possibility that the country could soon position itself...Show More Summary

Physicists detect process even rarer than the long-sought Higgs particle

Scientists running the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and most powerful "atom smasher," report the first evidence of a process that can be used to test the mechanism by which the recently discovered Higgs particle imparts mass to other fundamental particles.

Report Suggests Bored Scientists Now Just Sticking Random Things Into Large Hadron Collider

2 months agoOdd : Laughing Squid

The Onion reports that bored scientists have resorted to sticking random things into the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. One year after confirming the existence of the Higgs Boson, or “God Particle,” scientists at CERN say they are struggling to find other uses for the giant particle accelerator.

This Machine Is The Large Hadron Collider Of Sponge Balls

A Dutch art installation offers a spongey take on CERN's powerful particle accelerator. Deep underground beneath the border of France and Switzerland rests the world's most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider. The...Show More Summary

New evidence strengthens Higgs boson finding

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Fresh evidence has come to light supporting the theory that the particle detected at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012 is indeed the elusive Higgs boson. The work is the result of an international collaboration led by researchers...Show More Summary

Further Analysis of Higgs Boson Data Reconfirms Standard Model of Physics

For a subatomic particle that remained hidden for nearly 50 years, the Higgs boson is turning out to be remarkably well behaved. Yet more evidence from the world's largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland,...Show More Summary

Higgs boson shows scientists new tricks

A new result from the Large Hadron Collider strengthens the case that the Higgs interacts with both types of particles in the Standard Model. Scientists reported in Nature Physics this week that they have found substantial evidence of...Show More Summary

LHC confirms we’ve definitely discovered the Higgs boson, and (sadly) it behaves exactly as the Standard Model predicts

Some two years after a Higgs boson was discovered at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, a new study confirms that the newly discovered particle is definitely the Higgs boson, and it behaves exactly as the Standard Model of particle physics predicts. Show More Summary

Evidence found for the Higgs boson direct decay into fermions

For the first time, scientists from the CMS experiment on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN have succeeded in finding evidence for the direct decay of the Higgs boson into fermions. Previously, the Higgs particle could only be detected through its decay into bosons. Show More Summary

The supersymmetric bet

Particle physicists playfully take sides over whether the Large Hadron Collider is likely to discover evidence of Supersymmetry. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have exactly two years to find evidence of new particles. Cognac...Show More Summary

Large Hadron Collider Physics Conference

While I was away last week Columbia was hosting the Large Hadron Collider Physics (LHCP) conference here on campus. Talks are available here. Matt Strassler posts about some of the new Higgs results, which basically see some of the inconsistencies … Continue reading ?

Crowdscrounging pennies to support Canada's most important environmental research

3 months agoOdd : Boing Boing

When Stephen Harper's petrotories yanked funding from the Experimental Lakes Area -- Canada's answer to the Large Hadron Collider, a captive ecosystem where some of the world's most important environmental research has been conducted...Show More Summary

LBNL Proposing new Laser-Plasma Accelerator

It took every inch of the Large Hadron Collider's 17-mile length to accelerate particles to energies high enough to discover the Higgs boson. Now, imagine an accelerator that could do the same thing in, say, the length of a football field. Show More Summary

A new heart for the ATLAS detector

US scientists collaborated with an international team to install a new component in the core of the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The Large Hadron Collider’s biggest detector, the ATLAS detector, just got a little bigger. Show More Summary

Lasers could significantly shrink size and cost of particle accelerators

3 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are wonders of modern engineering and vending machines for Nobel prizes, but they’re also large – as indicated by the LHC's name – and costly. A new theoretical study by theShow More Summary
