This autumn, commissioning should be in full swing on the LHC at CERN, the world’s largest laboratory for the study of subnuclear physics.
With Switzerland's reputation for exactitude, Zurich was the ideal place for scientists to discuss high precision for hard processes at LHC in this last year's workshop.
On 8 December, scientists from the D0 experiment at Fermilab's Tevatron announced the first evidence for top quarks produced singly, rather than in pairs.
The KEDR collaboration has precisely measured the τ lepton mass.
As preparations for the start-up of the LHC continue to gather pace, a meeting in Cracow gave physicists the opportunity to take time to look to the exciting physics in store.
The D0 Collaboration at Fermilab has announced the first measurement of the cross-section for WZ pair production in proton–antiproton collisions.
More than 80 physicists from all over the world met in January in the ancient Portuguese town of Coimbra to take part in the International Workshop on Top Quark Physics, TOP2006.
Researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California have made the most precise test so far of quantum electrodynamics (QED).
Since soon after its discovery by Henri Becquerel in 1896, radioactivity has been known to involve the emission of helium nuclei (alphas), electrons (betas) and photons (gammas).
Europe's premier particle-physics conference took place in 2005 on the banks of the River Tagus, near Lisbon. Per Osland and Jorma Tuominiemi report.
