Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Last Run Fails to Recreate 2012 Results

CERN on Monday ran for the last time the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest particle accelerator, housed underground near the France-Switzerland border near Geneva, which ran since May this year. It said the number of collisions recorded by the ATLAS and CMS detectors during the proton run was 60 percent higher than expected though the results of 2012 ...

After Europe, US, Japan, It’s China’s Turn to Vie for Large Hadron Collider

With the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) achieving the so-called ultimate triumph in particle physics with its Higgs Boson experiment in 2012, China has jumped the bandwagon while Japan is piggy-backing the CERN. India has already dug the earth in Tamil Nadu for its Netrino underground venture. What’s coming forth is that Chinese scientists at the Institute of High ...

Sri Lanka Joins CERN Partnership for Collaboration in Particle Sciences Research

CERN and Sri Lanka have formed a partnership with the aim of formalizing and broadening their cooperation. To this end, CERN Director General Rolf Heuer and Sri Lanka‘s Permanent Representative at the UN in Geneva, Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha, signed an Expression of Interest on Thursday 25 June 2015. This agreement will pave the way for international cooperation with Sri Lanka ...

CERN Tests Large Hadron Collider at Record Energy to Break Protons, Achieves Breakthrough (Photos)

CERN achieved a breakthrough on Wednesday night when protons collided in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the record-breaking energy of 13 TeV for the first time, paving the way for the next round in early June in search of the dark matter or God’s particle. The set-up of the collimators, which absorb stray particles were adjusted in colliding-beam conditions ...

Physics paper by LHC team at CERN with over 5,000 authors sets new world record

In a first of its kind, a joint paper from two teams operating the massive detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Europe’s particle-physics lab near Geneva, Switzerland created a new record as it involved more than 5000 authors and and just the contributors’ name runs into 24 pages. The physics research paper, published in the journal Nature ...

Short Circuit Delays CERN’s Hunt for Dark Matter Indefinitely

In a rare occurrence of a short-circuit, CERN has delayed its much-anticipated re-start of the world’s largest proton smasher indefinitely. The particle-hunting Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was cooled in the last two years to double its energy and was planned for a re-start on Monday but the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) said on Wednesday that the error found ...
