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.
The International Linear Collider is the most technologically established Higgs-factory proposal.
50 years ago CERN’s Intersecting Storage Rings set in motion a series of hadron colliders charting nature at the highest possible energies.
An electron–positron Higgs factory following the LHC would significantly expand our knowledge about this unique and mysterious elementary scalar.
A 100 km tunnel hosting a circular electron–positron Higgs and electroweak factory would pave the way for an energy-frontier hadron collider.
The proposed Compact Linear Collider offers a Higgs factory with top-quark production in its initial stage.
The first ten years of LHC operations have generated a bumper crop of new knowledge.
Paolo Chiggiato and Leonel Ferreira explain the critical role that surface modification plays in big-science vacuum systems.
