An international team has made an advance towards more compact particle accelerators, demonstrating that beams can be focused via a technique called active plasma lensing without reducing the beam qua...
The cross-section of longitudinal weak-boson scattering would diverge, resulting in meaningless values, were it not for the exact cancellation due to Higgs-boson contributions.
A computing visionary and pioneer, who loved to share his ideas with irrepressible energy.
Lederman’s crowning achievement came in 1962 with the co-discovery of the muon neutrino.
He helped to create an atmosphere of creative thought and friendliness within every group he was part of.
Due to their short lifetimes, they decay when the system is still dense and the decay products scatter in the hadron gas, reducing the observed number of decays.
Why is the observed mass of the Higgs only 125 GeV?
The predicted cross section for tγj, including the branching fraction, is 81 fb, which corresponds to a few hundred events in the whole dataset.
A major figure in particle physics who shared the Nobel Prize for the co-discovery of the J/ψ meson.
This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics was shared between three researchers for groundbreaking inventions in laser physics. Half the prize went to Arthur Ashkin of Bell Laboratories in the US for his wo...
