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.
A 6 m-long section will be cut into pieces and fed into a SQUID in the name of fundamental research.
The ATLAS collaboration carried out a first collider search for light scalar particles that could contribute to the accelerating expansion of the universe.
Why is the observed mass of the Higgs only 125 GeV?
Interest is growing in new experiments that probe dark-matter candidates such as axions and other very weakly interacting sub-eV particles.
XENON1T is a 3D-imaging liquid-xenon time projection chamber located at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy.
Dijet searches look for a resonance in the two-jet invariant mass spectrum.
Several phenomenological studies have suggested that anomalies in B decays could be explained by the existence of hypothetical new particles which couple to both leptons and quarks.
Through their mixing with the Standard Model neutrinos, sterile Majorana neutrinos could be produced at the LHC in leptonic W-boson decays.
While the dark photon does not couple directly to Standard Model particles, quantum-mechanical mixing between the photon and dark-photon fields can generate a small interaction.
