New Charmonium Particle Discovered

Physicists from the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) Collaboration at CERN have discovered a previously unknown particle - a new charmonium particle.

Large Hadron Collider replacement plans unveiled

The "Future Circular Collider" is conceived as a successor to the LHC, and – if given the green light – it would allow physicists to seek answers to some of greatest mysteries in physics.

The Large Hadron Collider Is Shutting Down For Two Years

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is getting a big boost to its performance. Unfortunately, for fans of ground-breaking physics, the whole thing has to be shut down for two years while the work is done.

CERN physicists may have found a new and unexpected particle

The new and unknown particle is just over a fifth of the mass of the Higgs boson. There's nothing in any of the current models that predicts this mass. However, It's unlikely to be physics-breaking.

Physicists Achieve Electron-Accelerating Feat at Small Scale

The Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment (AWAKE) at CERN is a new kind of machine that could accelerate electrons over a fraction of the distance needed by other accelerators.

Mini antimatter accelerator could rival the the Large Hadron Collider

Researchers have found a way to accelerate antimatter in a 1000x smaller space than current accelerators, boosting the science of exotic particles.

Large Hadron Collider Accelerated 'Atoms' With Electrons for the First Time

In this case a beam of lead “atoms” traveled through the accelerator with at least one electron attached. The physicists hope to one day use these accelerated atoms in a next-generation experiment.

Higgs Boson Finally Observed at CERN

Large Hadron Collider general-purpose detectors ATLAS and CMS have made complimenting discoveries on the Higgs boson and top quark coupling process.

LHC experiment shows potential evidence of quasiparticle sought for decades

A team of high-energy experimental particle physicists has uncovered possible evidence of a subatomic quasiparticle dubbed an 'odderon' that - until now - had only been theorized to exist.

Two Teams Have Found Evidence of an Exotic New Particle

A pair of new research papers using theoretical methods have independently unearthed another new particle predicted by the laws of physics.

The Large Hadron Collider just detected a new particle

The Large Hadron Collider has once again done what it does best – smash bits of matter together and find new particles in the carnage.

The LHC is starting another year of high-energy physics

The first stable proton beams of the year have arrived at CERN.

Physicists might have just found a primordial state of matter in rare proton collisions

Physicists at CERN have reported an unexplained phenomenon in their giant ion collider device - for the first time ever, particles called 'strange hadrons' have been observed in rare proton collisions.

CERN points giant magnet at the Sun to look for dark matter particles

Engineers at CERN took magnets originally designed for the LHC, combined them with X-ray focusing technology originally designed for space, and built a device that could spot axions arriving here from the Sun.
