proton

Recent experiments peg the value of the proton radius at smaller than what was known earlier. Recent experiments using the muon, a cousin of the electron, give a radically different result. What’s afoot?

Blinding

A team of laser scientists have built a huge petawatt laser – the most powerful of its type in the world. This will now be used to accelerate particles like electrons – again something which has never been achieved.

Notice the broken yellow lines emerging out of the detector. Those are photon lines. Actually the broken line is a way to represent the fact that photons are invisible and not caught in the tracker. Then they are detected in the electromagnetic calorimeter, where green lines represent energy dumps.

To be proved wrong has never felt so good! To be a part of the historic moment is awesome!

Not quite yet!

The web has been buzzing with the probable discovery of the Higgs Boson and the upcoming CERN press conference has generated a lot of interest. We aim to caution you – tread lightly on Higgs discovery news, as there isn’t enough data yet to make that claim. Here’s a thought…

ICHEP2012

The Higgs boson search status will be announced in the upcoming CERN conference to be held in Geneva on the 4th of July. Incidentally, ICHEP, one of the biggest high energy conferences, is also supposed to start on the same day.

babar_data_pressrelease_final

The latest data from the BaBar experiment at Stanford Linear Accelerator has turned up data which contradicts the Standard Model and predicts an anomalous rate of decay for certain types of mesons. Is this the first real sign of Physics Beyond Standard Model?

The Tevatron data concludes roughly what the LHC has concluded for the low mass range. It seems that the Higgs is a low-mass Higgs, with a mass of about 125 GeV.

Once the giant accelerator and the mainstay of the high energy physics community, now reduced to a museum piece. Not even that actually, with the numerous components being detached from it.

Italian scientists have discovered signatures of a very exotic form of matter called hypernuclei! They have been able to synthesize hyperhydrogen – and this might help us understand the different strange matter particle in the Universe.

The Higgs search results became more promising with the earlier data revealing more stuff than what it had already revealed. An increase of the confidence level to 4.3-sigma is welcome news! Inching towards the magical 5-sigma…

A neutrino detector has been planned that is set to eclipse the tallest tower on land – the Burj Khalifa, except that it is going to be underwater! All this for the most elusive particle known to mankind.

The Higgs Boson has been glimpsed, but nothing confirmatory has been said about its existence. Extremely promising result at 126 GeV seen.

Rumours are circulating of a potential Higgs observation at a high 3.5 sigma confidence level at LHC, CERN. More concrete news should come in a few days. All eyes on the December 13th conference.
