Experiments such as MADMAX, IAXO and ALPS II are expanding the search for axions and other weakly interacting ‘slim’ particles that could hail from far above the TeV scale.
After two years of intense work, accelerator physicists are cooling the LHC to operational temperatures and eyeing the final stretch of the road to Run 3.
Experimentalists and theorists met from 16 to 19 November for the eighth workshop of the LHC's long-lived particles community.
Ivo van Vulpen’s popular book isn’t an airy pamphlet cashing in on the 2012 discovery, but a realistic representation of what it’s like to be a particle physicist.
Detectors similar to those used to hunt for sterile neutrinos could help guard against the extraction of plutonium-239 for nuclear weapons, writes Patrick Huber.
A new generation of accelerator and reactor experiments is opening an era of high-precision neutrino measurements.
A global network of ultra-sensitive optical atomic magnetometers – GNOME – has begun its search for exotic fields beyond the Standard Model.
Alain Blondel and Panagiotis Charitos report on developments at the third FCC Physics and Experiments Workshop.
LHCb will soon become the first LHC experiment able to run simultaneously with two separate interaction regions.
Ten years on from the LHC's first high-energy collisions, Mark Rayner interviews some of the foremost detector experts on what it took to keep the experiments fighting fit.
