Scientists in Germany said Wednesday they had made the most precise measurement yet of the mass of the electron, one of the building blocks of matter.
New concerns about the world-ending potential of the second most powerful particle accelerator in the world stems from a misconception of "risk." Continue reading →
New measurements of the electron have confirmed, to the smallest precision attainable, that it has a perfect roundness -- this is bad news for theories of physics beyond the standard model. Continue reading →
A new experiment buried deep underground has proven itself to be the most sensitive dark-matter detector ever built -- but the first results from the high-tech instrument have turned up empty in its search for elusive dark matter.
While looking for a strange state of matter in two particle accelerators, it has been announced that another, totally unexpected, particle has been discovered. Continue reading →
Bosons and fermions are fundamental particles -- but the "anyon" could be the wild-child of the quantum world.
Could the quantum vacuum of space act a bit like a metamaterial, creating a cosmic "superlens"? One physicist thinks so.
OPERA spokesperson Antonio Ereditato and experimental coordinator Dario Autiero, who were in the middle of the media circus surrounding the "faster-than-light" neutrino results, have stepped down.
