The fundamental structure of nucleons is described by the properties and dynamics of their constituent quarks and gluons, as described by QCD. The gluon’s self-interaction complicates this picture considerably. Non-linear recombination reactions, where two gluons […]

The Standard Model (SM) allows neutral flavoured mesons such as the D0 to oscillate into their antiparticles. Having first observed this process in 2012, the LHCb collaboration has recently made some of the world’s most […]

Precision measurements of diboson processes at the LHC are powerful probes of the gauge structure of the Standard Model at the multi-TeV energy scale. Among the most interesting directions in the diboson physics programme is […]

On 16 June 2018, a bright burst of light was observed by the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) telescope in Hawaii, which automatically searches for optical transient events. The event, which received the automated […]

NOvA joins supernova watch The NOvA experiment in the US, designed to study neutrino oscillations in a beam produced at Fermilab, has joined the Supernova Early Warning System (SNEWS). SNEWS is a global network of […]

The High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC), scheduled to operate from 2026, will increase the instantaneous luminosity of the LHC by at least a factor of five beyond its initial design luminosity. The analysis of a fraction of […]

On 18 February the CMS and MoEDAL collaborations at CERN signed an agreement that will see a 6 m-long section of the CMS beam pipe cut into pieces and fed into a SQUID in the name […]

We have conquered the easiest challenges in fundamental physics, says Nima Arkani-Hamed. The case for building the next major collider is now more compelling than ever.

Newly published results from the MINOS+ experiment at Fermilab in the US cast fresh doubts on the existence of the sterile neutrino – a hypothetical fourth neutrino flavour that would constitute physics beyond the Standard […]

Ideas from supersymmetry have been used to address a longstanding challenge in optics – how to suppress unwanted spatial modes that limit the beam quality of high-power lasers. Mercedeh Khajavikhan at the University of Central […]
