Experimental particle physics
Particle physics is a branch of physics which studies the nature of particles that are the constituents of what is usually referred to as matter - particles with mass; and radiation - massless particl...

Iodine Molecular Movie
This movie, derived from LCLS data, shows an iodine molecule moving in the first 2 trillionths of a second after being excited by a laser pulse. The clouds o...
The biggest explosions in the Universe
These bursts are a million times brighter than entire galaxies
The Higgs-shaped elephant in the room
Higgs bosons should mass-produce bottom quarks. So why is it so hard to see it happening?
Is Particle Physics About to Crack Wide Open?
Hints of an unexpected new particle could be confirmed within days—and if it is, the Standard Model could be going down
After Black Holes Collide, a Puzzling Flash
A surprising flash that accompanied a black hole collision is leading physicists to rethink what black holes can do.
Large Hadron Collider results may hint at a new era of physics
Are we about to enter a new era of physics? Data collected by the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland may have identified particle activity that doesn’t fit the standard laws of physics.
Step Inside The Large Hadron Collider (360 video)
A 360 tour of CERN that takes you deep inside the Large Hadron Collider – the world’s greatest physics experiment - with BBC Click’s Spencer Kelly.
The Social Life Of Quarks
Among particle physicists, Sheldon Stone has a reputation for high standards and brutal honesty. He’s been known to challenge a tenuous claim by shouting in the middle of a colleague’s talk. So when S...
Physicists Offer Theories To Explain Mysterious Collision At Large Hadron Collider
Physicists around the world were puzzled recently when an unusual bump appeared in the signal of the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, causing them to ...
Big 'Schrödinger's Cats' Created
For the first time, scientists have demonstrated superposition over a macroscopic scale of about a half-meter. This finding reveals that superposition is possible at the distances and timescales of ev...
Fermilab Experiment Finds No Evidence That We Live in a Hologram
A controversial experiment at Fermilab designed to hunt for signs that our universe may really be a hologram has failed to find the evidence it was seeking, the laboratory has announced. It’s called ...
Artificial intelligence called in to tackle LHC data deluge
The next generation of particle-collider experiments will feature some of the world’s most advanced thinking machines, if links now being forged between particle physicists and artificial intelligence...
The LHC Is Now Colliding Lead at the Highest-Ever Energies
The Large Hadron Collider has been back online and pushing the limits of physics again for a few months now. But it’s about to enter a new phase, colliding lead ions at twice the energy that any colli...
CERN Collides Heavy Nuclei At New Record High Energy
One of the very first collisions recorded between two lead ions at the LHC's top energy. The energy in the center-of-mass system is approximately 1000 TeV. Todays events bring collisions physics into ...
Gargamelle and Neutral Currents - Sixty Symbols
Gathering dust (and beer cans) under a tree at CERN - it's Gargamelle. This experiment played a key role in Nobel Prize-winning research into the weak force....
Particle physics experiments
Particle physics experiments briefly discusses a number of past, present, and proposed experiments with particle accelerators, throughout the world. In addition, some important accelerator interaction...
Particle accelerator
A particle accelerator is a device that uses electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to high speeds and to contain them in well-defined beams.Large accelerators are best known for their use...

Raether limit
The Raether limit is the physical limiting value of the multiplication factor (M) or gas gain in an ionization avalanche process (Townsend avalanche). Even though, theoretically, it seems as if M can ...
