A joint Fermilab/SLAC publication
latest news

Today’s long-anticipated announcement by Fermilab’s Muon g-2 team appears to solidify a tantalizing conflict between nature and theory. But a separate calculation, published at the same time, has clouded the picture.

It's not the next Higgs boson—yet. But the best explanation, physicists say, involves forms of matter and energy not currently known to science.


First results from Fermilab’s Muon g-2 experiment strengthen evidence of new physics

The new measurement from the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab strongly agrees with the value found at Brookhaven and diverges from theory with the most precise measurement to date.


A laser beam has been used to slow down antihydrogen atoms, the simplest atoms made of pure antimatter.
