Berkeley Lab researchers participated in a study that used machine learning to scan for new particles in three years of particle-collision data from CERN’s ATLAS detector.
Argonne scientists awarded funding to improve Argonne Tandem Linear Accelerator System.
A new study dives into a decades-old discrepancy from a Standard Model of particle physics pillar known as “lepton flavor universality,” and provides strong evidence to resolve it.
Marjorie Shapiro, an experimental particle physicist and faculty senior scientist at Berkeley Lab, has been accustomed to working remotely and observing extreme social distancing from some colleagues for years, given that the scientific experiment she supports is 5,800 miles away.
To understand how elements heavier than iron formed, scientists are running particle physics experiments and astrophysical computing models that complement each other. They collaborate to find the distinctive signatures of heavy elements.
