The book rekindled the interest in physics I had as a child and after reading A Brief History of Time, I immersed myself, quietly, I should add, in some of the literature on theoretical physics, particle physics, astrology and cosmology. I say “quietly” because I feel sufficiently confident to say only that my ...
The high ranking of PU is also due to the work of particle physics scientists of the Physics Department. The selection was based on a composite score generated by evaluating the academic output of the researcher in Scopus indexed journals for 2015-17, the citation count and h-index. These researchers ...

He grew up to become a theoretical physicist, fascinated with both big issues like the shape of time and space, and the intricate concerns of particle physics. Brian believes these two branches of science don't mesh together yet, but he might have an answer. It's string theory, which suggests that everything ...
Back in the 1970s, physicists developed the theory known as the Standard Model of particle physics, which postulates that “everything in the universe is found to be made from a few basic building blocks called fundamental particles, governed by four fundamental forces.” The most recently discovered ...
As Marco Nardecchia reviewed in his talk (PDF), bottom particles produced in the LHCb detector in proton collisions are decaying too often in certain particular ways, compared to predictions from the Standard Model of particle physics. Their decay products are coming out with the wrong angles too often ...

He eventually became a professor at the University of Chicago, studying particle physics. But even as he picked at the fabric holding the universe together, he was thinking about art, beauty and the forces of history. Freund, who later wrote fiction and nonfiction that explored the themes of morality, fate, ...
The world of particle physics is invisible to the naked eye, existing at a scale that's almost inconceivably small. Stacked on top of each other, a trillion protons—particles found in an atom's nucleus—would reach just 1 millimeter high. Physicists build tools to “see” this world, making it visible through data and ...
In a vote earlier this month, the DUNE collaboration elected Stefan Soldner-Rembold, professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester, as its new co-spokesperson to help guide the experiment through these next two years. Soldner-Rembold has experience leading a large collaboration—he ...
Taylor's experiment was arguably the moment when particle physics matured as “big science”. The discovery of the quark seeded the development of the Standard Model of particle physics and eventually, in 1990, led Taylor to be awarded the Nobel prize along with Friedman and Kendall. He was born in ...
After contacting them, Deane got involved in their workshops and summer programs and participated in one-week intensive particle physics camps in 2013 and 2015. “As soon as I found out there was a CERN camp in 2013, I applied and didn't get in,” he said. “I applied again in 2014 and didn't get in.
The standard model is a way of describing elementary particles and the electromagnetic and weak interactions between them. It describes forces at play other than gravitation. In 1967 Steven Weinberg and Abdus Salam incorporated the Higgs boson particle creating the model in use today. As Stephen ...
22, these two definitions converged when Jonathan Heckman, an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Penn, came to the school to speak to three 11th grade classes about particle physics and, in particular, his work in string theory, which many scientists believe offers a way of ...

It still has not been observed in particle physics. However, scientists have predicted and observed electrons in the semimetal tantalum arsenide (TaAs) behaving just like the elusive particle. The particles have handedness determined by whether the directions of spin and motion of the particle are parallel or ...

A MAJOR European laboratory at the cutting edge of research into particle physics has received a visit from Keighley district school pupils. The group of 16 year 12 and 13 physics students from South Craven School toured the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), in Switzerland.
“The systems that we deal with in particle physics are intrinsically quantum mechanical systems,” says Panagiotis Spentzouris, head of Fermilab's Scientific Computing Division. “Classical computers cannot simulate large entangled quantum systems. You have plenty of problems that we would like to be ...
A team of more than 100 researchers working at the Large Hadron Collider in Europe may have just witnessed the first direct evidence of a theoretical particle called an odderon. An odderon—in theory—is a subatomic quasiparticle, meaning something that behaves enough like a particle to be considered ...
Balasubramanian did his Ph.D. in theoretical particle physics at Princeton University and also worked on the UA1 experiment at CERN's Super Proton Synchrotron in the 1980s. Today his research ranges from string theory to theoretical biophysics, where he applies methodologies common in physics to ...
Current textbooks often refer to the Lorentz-Maxwell force governed by the electric charge. But they rarely refer to the extension of that theory required to explain the magnetic force on a point particle. For elementary particles, such as muons or neutrinos, the magnetic force applied to such charges is unique ...
Physicists in China are on the cusp of "breaking the vacuum"—a phenomenon created by lasers of unprecedented power that physically rip particles out from empty space, showing that matter and energy are interchangeable, as Albert Einstein theorized with his E=mc2 equation. In 2016, China's Shanghai ...
They hope to firm up tantalizing hints from an earlier incarnation of the experiment, which suggested that the particle is ever so slightly more magnetic than predicted by the prevailing standard model of particle physics. That would give researchers something they have desired for decades: proof of physics ...
Conservation of energy, charge, angular momentum and other quantum numbers dictates that this is the only way that neutrons can decay within the Standard Model of particle physics. To measure the average neutron lifetime precisely, physicists employ two basic techniques. One is to house neutrons ...
Physicists have designed the first device to create particles with charged negative mass. The breakthrough could lead to an entirely new way to generate laser light using only a tiny amount of energy. The success hinged on making a device that allowed for the creation of strange particles called polaritons.

The search for a unified theory is, therefore, a search for a quantum theory of gravity that has the ability to recover known phenomena in particle physics and cosmology, including the entire standard model of particle physics that has been tested for decades at particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron ...
We have a good theory of the strong force, which sits proudly in our Standard Model of particle physics. However, making predictions with this theory is very difficult. This is not simply to say that the sums are hard (they are), but that in many cases we don't even know what sums we should be doing.
The smallest pieces of the universe are governed by a beautiful and mind-blowing set of rules: the “Standard Model.” The Standard Model explains the behavior of all 17 discovered particles, and it continues to make predictions that have been proven accurate by the largest physics experiments in the world ...
