Diving into the unknown: What's physics after the Higgs boson?

(Aalto University) Thousands of researchers at the CERN research centre are looking for particles and phenomena that standard physics cannot explain. Aalto University doctoral student Juska Pekkanen is part of a group working with the highest collision energies ever achieved.

Measuring small forces that lead to large effects

Forces between individual particles in slurries are responsible for their rheological behavior. Direct quantification of physical forces between mineral faces is now possible with atomic force microscopy, thanks to work at IDREAM, an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) funded by DOE's Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences.

How suspended particles influence liquid flow dynamics

One of the most prominent publications in physics, Physical Review X, accepted an article by Sangwoo Shin, a University of Hawai?i at M?noa assistant professor in mechanical engineering. The article is titled Accumulation of Colloidal Particles in Flow Junctions Induced by Fluid Flow and Diffusiophoresis.

High-performance computing cuts particle collision data prep time

For the first time, scientists have used high-performance computing (HPC) to reconstruct the data collected by a nuclear physics experiment—an advance that could dramatically reduce the time it takes to make detailed data available for scientific discoveries.

Joint APP and HEPP Conference

Conference: 26 Mar 2018 - 28 Mar 2018, Bristol, United Kingdom. Organized by IOP Astroparticle Physics and High Energy Particle Physics Groups.

Ghost Particles Detected On Far Side Of Earth Bolsters Crucial Physics Theory

If we're ever going to truly understand how our universe works, we'll need to take a lot of different measurements, but measuring can be one of science's most difficult tasks. How, for example, do scientists measure an invisible thing...Show More Summary

Because both science and sweets are awesome, cartoonist Tom Gauld created a way to simultaneously test our knowledge of particle physics and Italian treats.

Nearby pulsars shed light on the antimatter puzzle

(The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences) There are too many high-energy positrons in the cosmic rays reaching the Earth. These positrons (particles that are antimatter equivalents of electrons) could be being produced by pulsars in our vicinity. Show More Summary

Nobel-Winning Physicist Worried About 100 Chocolate Coin Wager Over New Particles

Nobel Prize winner Frank Wilczek was optimistic back in 2012. After all, he'd just won a wager after scientists had just announced their Higgs boson discovery at the Large Hadron Collider particle physics experiment in Switzerland. He made another bet - but he's doesn't feel as confident today. More »
