Particle physics experiments strengthen evidence for a new force of nature

A recently completed experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) on the outskirts of Chicago produced strong data suggesting that a new force of nature may have been discovered. If this result is ultimately confirmed, it would require a…

£ 6million in particle physics research grants

Particle physics research at the University of Manchester has received a boost in the form of UK research and innovation grants of over £ 6million. The money comes from the UKRI’s Science and Technology Facilities Council, which supports particle physics…

Particle Physics Research | What are quarks?

Qwerty123uiop Wikimedia Commons Quarks are elementary particles, without a substructure. Understanding them is crucial in learning how physics works at the smallest levels. By studying the collisions of incredibly small particles composed of quarks known as J / psi particles,…

Department of Energy to provide $ 100 million for particle physics research

The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced last Thursday that $ 100 million in new and renewed university grants for the study of high energy physics. The grants are expected to cover all research in particle physics, including work based…

60 years of UChicago particle physics research culminates with experience in Japan

Newswise – Three generations of University of Chicago physicists have spent decades painstakingly cataloging the characteristics of a family of alien particles called kaons, and an upcoming experiment promises to be the most accurate yet. “Chicago has played a major…
