A glimpse into the future: Accelerated computing for accelerated particles  PHYS.ORG · 1 week
Every proton collision at the Large Hadron Collider is different, but only a few are special. The special collisions generate particles in unusual patterns—possible manifestations of new, rule-breaking... more
ATLAS Experiment releases new search for strong supersymmetry  PHYS.ORG · 1 week
New particles sensitive to the strong interaction might be produced in abundance in the proton-proton collisions generated by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) – provided that they aren't too heavy. These particles... more
Zooming in on top-quark production  PHYS.ORG · 2 weeks
As the heaviest known elementary particle, the top quark has a special place in the physics studied at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Top quark-antiquark pairs are copiously produced in collisions recorded by the ATLAS detector,... more
High-Luminosity LHC: Diggers at work 100 meters underground  PHYS.ORG · 3 weeks
Dig, dig, dig. One hundred meters underground, excavation work is under way for the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider project. This next-generation LHC, which will begin operation in 2026, will reach luminosities five... more
