NA62 experiment presents new results

by Cristina Lazzeroni (NA62 Spokesperson, University of Birmingham)

NA62 experiment presents the latest result on the search for the ultra-rare kaon decay to a pion and a neutrino–antineutrino pair with 2017 data.

COMPASS results guiding future exploration of hadron structure in CERN’s North Area.

by Oleg Denisov (INFN), Wolf-Dieter Nowak (DESY), Fulvio Tessarotto (INFN) on behalf of the COMPASS collaboration

COMPASS Collaboration has published a wealth of new results over the past four years elucidating the nucleon’s internal structure and paving the way for future measurements.

LHCf sheds light on hadronic interaction models

by L. Bonechi (INFN Florence) and H. Menjo (Nagoya University)

The LHCf experiments prepares for measurements during LHC Run 3 that will shade light on the physics of hadronic interactions of Cosmic Rays with atmosphere and improve current models.

Nuclear Physics Meets Neutrinos

by Laura Fields (Fermilab)

NA61/SHINE has executed a program of measurements aimed at improving neutrino flux predictions in Fermilab’s neutrino beams

Baby MIND prepares for first physics run with WAGASCI at T2K

by Etam Noah (University of Geneva)

Baby MIND has successfully been installed in Japan to start the experimental endeavour it has been designed and built for. 

Atomic Experiments for Dark Matter and Gravity Exploration

by Albert de Roeck (CERN), Panos Charitos (CERN)

During a two-day workshop at CERN, the cold atom community met with particle physicists and gravitational-wave experts to review ground and space applications.

First measurement of a long-lived meson-meson atom lifetime

by Juerg Schacher (corresponding author) on behalf of DIRAC collaboration

The DIRAC collaboration at CERN observed new kinds of exotic atoms, the “double-exotic” meson-meson atoms.

Resolving a long-standing question at ISOLDE

by Karl Johnston (CERN)

HIE-ISOLDE results reveal the full extent of the odd-even shape staggering of exotic mercury isotopes and the underlying mechanism. 

The MoEDAL Experiment at the Discovery Frontier

by James Pinfold for the MoEDAL collaboration

LS2 period marks an exciting period of intense activity for MoEDAL, the LHC’s newest experiment.

ALPHA-g sees its first antiparticles: does antimatter fall up or down?

by Niels Masden and Claudio Lenz Cesaron on behalf of ALPHA

The ALPHA collaboration working on antihydrogen at the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) in building 193 has successfully expanded their setup with new devices.
