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...
A hidden-double-charm tetraquark observed recently by LHCb has reinvigorated the debate over whether tetraquarks are pairs of mesons or pairs of diquarks.
Steven Weinberg, one of the architects of the Standard Model, is awarded $3M Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics.
The first evidence for the coupling of the Higgs boson to a second-generation fermion has been reported at the LHC.
The Borexino collaboration has used an ingenious analysis to provide the first direct proof of the CNO cycle.
The ATLAS collaboration has made the first observation of the photo-production of W-boson pairs.
CERN’s NA62 collaboration has presented 3.5σ evidence for K+→π+νν̄ – a “golden decay” with exceptional sensitivity to physics beyond th...
A highlight of the conference was the first observation of solar CNO neutrinos by the Borexino collaboration.
The observation of the electroweak production of W±W±, WZ and ZZ boson pairs is an essential milestone towards precision tests at the LHC.
The ALICE collaboration recently used p–p and p–Λ pairs to perform the first study of the particle-emitting source for baryons produced in pp collisions.
The result could shape policies for reducing urban particle pollution.
CERN’s CLOUD experiment has merged the best of particle physics and atmospheric science into a novel experimental approach, says spokesperson Jasper Kirkby.
Young Suh Kim and Marilyn Noz’s book may struggle to find its audience, says Nikolaos Rompotis.
The excess could be due to a difficult-to-constrain tritium background, solar axions or solar neutrinos with a Majorana nature, says the collaboration.
Originally scheduled to be held in Paris, the fully online conference brought together a particularly large and diverse group of participants.
