Scientists invent a way to capture mysterious particles from the "dark world" in the Large Hadron Collider

A new article describes a method that allows particles from the "dark world" to be recognized directly by the Large Hadron Collider. So far, we could only perform indirect measurements and simulations, such as the dark matter visualization above. Picture credits: Zarija Lukic / Berkeley Lab After identifying the Higgs boson, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have targeted an …

Exotic particles with five quarks discovered at the Large Hadron Collider

Everything you see around you consists of elementary particles called quarks and leptons, which can combine to form larger particles such as protons or atoms. But that does not make them boring – these subatomic particles can also combine in an exotic way that we've never seen before. Now, CERN's LHCb collaboration has announced the discovery of a new particle …

How ghostly quantum particles fly through barriers almost immediately

Physicists solved a decade-long puzzle by describing how fast a particle can pass through a barrier. Particles can fly through seemingly insurmountable barriers like ghosts. For decades, physicists have wondered how long this so-called quantum tunneling takes. After a three-year investigation, an international team of theoretical physicists now has an answer. According to a new study, they measured a tunneling …

NASA reveals that Bennu asteroid spits particles into space

Asteroids shooting off particles are rare. The likelihood that an asteroid with particle spitting was also selected by NASA for observation is even rarer. This means that Bennu is an active asteroid, of which only a dozen were found among the nearly 800,000 observed scientists. "Feather discovery is one of the biggest surprises in my scientific career," said Dante Lauretta, …

The new imaging technology detects the movement of quantum particles with unprecedented resolution

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Excitons – electrically neutral quasiparticles – have extraordinary properties. They exist only in semiconducting and insulating materials and are easily accessible with two-dimensional (2D) materials that are only a few atoms thick, such as carbon and molybdenite. When these 2D materials are combined, they have quantum properties that no material alone possesses. A new study by …
