Laser-cooling enables new measurements that could explain why antimatter is so scarce in our universe.
For 15 years, there has been a mismatch in physics. A particle called the muon wasn't behaving the way theory predicted it should. A new theory and new experiment might solve this problem.
New particles or forces may exist that aren't accounted for in the standard model.
A transcript of episode 9 of The Conversation Weekly podcast, including an update on the situation for Rohingya refugees in Myanmar living in camps in Bangladesh.
Plus why the situation for Rohingya Muslims living in Bangladesh has gone from bad to worse. Listen to episode 9 of The Conversation Weekly podcast.
A long-sought crack in the Standard Model of particle physics may have been spotted.
If the finding really is the result of new fundamental particles then it will finally be the breakthrough that physicists have been yearning for for decades.
The theory of tiny particles isn't complete. But new discoveries are helping scientists expand it.
Plus new research finds a way to speed up the search for dark matter. Listen to episode 4 of The Conversation Weekly.
The compact accelerators are 100 times smaller than traditional ones, and could easily fit inside hospitals and laboratories.
Researchers have found a way to speed up the search for dark matter using technology from quantum computing. By squeezing quantum noise, detectors can now look for axions twice as fast.
It's all to do with the light from the Sun and a blanket of air wrapped around Earth called the 'atmosphere'.
New physics may be needed to explain why there's more matter than antimatter in the universe.
The study of neutrinos produced within the Earth's interior provides a better understanding of the radioactivity of our planet.
Field theory describes the universe as energy flowing along unending lines. With this perspective, it is possible to define a new fundamental building block of matter.
When scientists created the Higgs particle with protons, they needed the 10km-wide Large Hadron Collider. A muon machine could achieve it with a diameter of just 200 metres.
A recent experiment with atomic nuclei is hard to square with our current understanding of physics.
Heisenberg's famous Uncertainty Principle is put to the test to see if things really are uncertain in the quantum world.
A new collider at CERN could push particle physics deep into an unexplored microscopic realm.
Scientists at Cern's Large Hadron Collider have seen something that may force us to abandon everything we thought we knew about the world on the level of particles.
