In physics, spinors are used to plot the spin properties of elementary particles. In Stanford's recreational softball league, it's a whole different story.
In a display of timing worthy of a blockbuster movie, a multinational team of accelerator physicists focused a beam of electrons down to the tiny size needed for a future linear collider the same w
Objects as large as a planet or as small as a photon can have the property of spin. Spin is also the reason we can watch movies in 3D.
Herman Winick thought making synchrotrons was his life’s work, but life had a few surprises in store.
Early in the summer of 2012, excitement reached a peak as members of the CMS and ATLAS collaborations confirmed among themselves that they would soon announce the discovery of what looked like the
Spectroscopy is a technique that astronomers use to measure and analyze the hundreds of colors contained in the light emitted by stars, galaxies and other celestial objects.
The Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment aims to discover whether neutrinos violate the fundamental matter–antimatter symmetry of physics.
For years, scientists thought that neutrinos fit perfectly into the Standard Model. But they don't.
