Boris Kayser explains how neutrino physicists are now closing in on a crucial piece of evidence on the origin of the matter–antimatter asymmetry observed in the Universe.
The result could shape policies for reducing urban particle pollution.
The excess could be due to a difficult-to-constrain tritium background, solar axions or solar neutrinos with a Majorana nature, says the collaboration.
Advanced neutron facilities such as the Institut Laue-Langevin are gearing up to enable a deeper understanding of the structural workings of SARS-CoV-2.
The observation of the electroweak production of W±W±, WZ and ZZ boson pairs is an essential milestone towards precision tests at the LHC.
A global network of ultra-sensitive optical atomic magnetometers – GNOME – has begun its search for exotic fields beyond the Standard Model.
Young Suh Kim and Marilyn Noz’s book may struggle to find its audience, says Nikolaos Rompotis.
The ALICE collaboration recently used p–p and p–Λ pairs to perform the first study of the particle-emitting source for baryons produced in pp collisions.
The need at CERN to align components within a fraction of a millimetre demands skills and tools beyond the scope of normal surveyor jobs.
Pierre Lazeyras, who played leading roles in the ALEPH experiment, neutrino beams and silicon detectors during a 35-year-long career at CERN, passed away on 4 April aged 88.
Aldo Michelini, who led OPAL and other important experiments at CERN, passed away at Easter at the age of 89.
Distinguished CERN physicist Adolf Minten passed away on 21 March at the age of 88.
He devoted himself to teaching, administration and the rich physics research programmes at the INFN and the universities of Milan and Milano-Bicocca.
She was a leading figure within the particle-physics community, and promoted the participation of women in science.
The CMS collaborator passed away at just 36, from complications due to COVID-19.
Accelerator physicist John Flanagan, who made important contributions to the KEKB and SuperKEKB projects in Japan, passed away on 13 March.
Particle physicists should begin a feasibility study for a future hadron collider at CERN with an electron-positron Higgs factory as a possible first stage, concludes the 2020 upda...
