Wealth of new results in Quark Matter 2017

by Panos Charitos

Last month, the LHC experiment collaborations presented their latest results at the Quark Matter 2017 conference on how matter behaved in the very early moments of the universe.

ATLAS and CMS physicists win the 2017 Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics. 

Searching for dark energy with particle colliders

by Clare Burrage (University of Nottingham)

A new approach for collider searches of dark energy. A combination of terrestrial and cosmological data can give us a comprehensive picture about one of the biggest mysteries of our Universe. 

Where is Supersymmetry?

by Panos Charitos

The original idea for introducing supersymmetry dates back in the 1960s. In this article we discuss how SUSY has evolved and what have we learned so far from the LHC... 

ATLAS releases first measurement of the W mass using LHC data.

Become a Higgs Hunter

by Katarina Anthony,

The HiggsHunters is the first mass-participation citizen science project for the Large Hadron Collider and has recently released its first paper.

Thanks to the outstanding performances of the LHC, the experiments presented a wealth of new results in ICHEP2016.

The workshop “Charting the Unknown: Interpreting LHC data from the energy frontier” focused on the interpretation of the new data from Run 2 in the context of theories beyond the Standard Model.

LHC Restart 2016

by Panos Charitos

Following the 2016 restart of the LHC, we have asked the run coordinators of the four largest LHC experiments — ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb — to share a few words with us about the first data taking. Their broad physics programme will be complemented by the measurements of three smaller experiments (TOTEM, LHCf and MoEDAL) and may hold the key to new physics.

Two of the LHC experiments, ATLAS and ALICE, recently announced winners of the “ATLAS PhD Grant” and “ALICE Thesis Award” schemes. The prizes aim to foster healthy competition between young members of the two collaborators and acknowledge the hard efforts of the winners but also of those who were considered for these awards.
