Studies using traps and lasers not only help researchers understand nuclear structure, but also offer new ways to look for physics beyond the Standard Model.
The European Spallation Source will provide neutron beams 100 times brighter than those from reactor sources, enabling new research into material properties and fundamental physics.
The ATLAS and CMS collaborations have not only discovered a new particle, argues Yosef Nir, but also laid bare the underpinnings of electroweak interactions and uncovered the first evidence for a new ...
A hidden-double-charm tetraquark observed recently by LHCb has reinvigorated the debate over whether tetraquarks are pairs of mesons or pairs of diquarks.
A new generation of accelerator and reactor experiments is opening an era of high-precision neutrino measurements.
Boris Kayser explains how neutrino physicists are now closing in on a crucial piece of evidence on the origin of the matter–antimatter asymmetry observed in the Universe.
Advanced neutron facilities such as the Institut Laue-Langevin are gearing up to enable a deeper understanding of the structural workings of SARS-CoV-2.
A global network of ultra-sensitive optical atomic magnetometers – GNOME – has begun its search for exotic fields beyond the Standard Model.
Nb3Sn accelerator magnets for the high-luminosity LHC are a springboard to future fundamental exploration, writes Luca Bottura.
A high-energy muon collider is receiving renewed attention as a possible frontier-exploration machine.
