How to put together an international physics experiment

To build the DUNE neutrino experiment and its associated accelerator upgrade, experts invent customized ways to transport fragile, expensive and highly specialized components.


Do hidden influences give neutrinos their tiny mass?

The quest to understand the small mass of neutrinos is also a quest to discover new particles.


Kétévi Assamagan pays it forward

Kétévi Assamagan's contributions to physics go beyond his research at the Large Hadron Collider.


What the Higgs boson tells us about the universe

The Higgs boson is the only fundamental particle known to be scalar, meaning it has no quantum spin. This fact answers questions about our universe, but it also raises new ones.


Creating the next 3D maps of the universe

Scientists have proposed new instruments that would use spectroscopy to decode dark matter, dark energy and cosmic inflation.


How to do particle physics in a climate emergency

Scientists in the particle physics community are bringing environmental and climate issues to the table in discussions about future research.


A new way to explore proton’s structure with neutrinos yields first results

Physicists used MINERvA, a Fermilab neutrino experiment, to measure the proton’s size and structure using a neutrino-scattering technique.


Proposed experiment seeks origin of cosmic neutrinos

Most astronomers trek to the mountaintops to study the stars, but a group of physicists are seeking the secrets of the cosmos with a detector at the bottom of the ocean.


Ways to weigh a neutrino

For decades scientists have tried to find a way to measure the mass of the lightest matter particle known to exist. Three new approaches now have a chance to succeed.


Energy consumption, cost considerations could shape future of accelerator R&D

A recent report underscores the importance of energy consumption and cost to decisions about future large-scale particle accelerator projects.


Feeling the universe in the ‘Particle Shrine’

A physicist, a composer and a creative technician team up to translate the unseen particles around us into a format that human bodies can understand.


Physics books of 2022

This year’s list includes a book about an eminent physicist striving to avoid fame, two unique books for children, and a book with equations you'll actually be able to read.


First-time ATLAS measurement provides new look at Higgs

For the first time, physicists have a statistically significant measurement of the joint polarization of W and Z bosons.


Finding art in astrophysics technology

LSST Camera images provide the inspiration for artist Lennart Lahuis’s “Astromelancholia.”


Madagascar’s path to neutrino physics

Laza Rakotondravohitra was the first Malagasy grad student to conduct research in neutrino physics. He and others are working to ensure he will be far from the last.


Parenting in physics

Scientists discuss the challenges of being caregivers in physics and some ways they’ve seen the field change for the better.
