Given LHCb’s current level of experimental precision, any sign of CP violation would be a clear indication of physics beyond the Standard Model.
This largely unexplored phenomenon is expected to occur when the gluons in a hadron overlap transversally, and is enhanced for hadrons with high atomic numbers.
The ATLAS collaboration carried out a first collider search for light scalar particles that could contribute to the accelerating expansion of the universe.
The Centre for Time, Constants and Fundamental Symmetries will offer access to ultra-sensitive equipment for atomic and nuclear physics, antimatter research, quantum optics and metrology.
The ALICE collaboration has measured the photoproduction of J/ψ mesons.
Until recently the number of theories on the origin of fast radio bursts outnumbered the number of observations.
Scientists have determined the ionisation potentials from fermium to lawrencium, confirming the filling of the 5f shell in the heavy actinides.
The discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC in the summer of 2012 set particle physics on a new course of exploration.
The Standard Model makes precise predictions for the frequency at which the spin of the top quark is aligned with the spin of the top antiquark.
LHCb has been flooded by b- and c-hadrons due to the large beauty and charm production cross-sections within the experiment’s acceptance.
