Latin American institutions are instrumental in creating photon detectors for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
Maria Teresa Dova has been instrumental in bringing scientists in Argentina new opportunities to participate in particle physics and astrophysics experiments, including one that co-discovered the Higgs boson.
Feeling left out of some traditional paths to community in particle physics, a group of Latin American researchers created their own way to connect.
Scientists are designing a next-generation experiment to map the Big Bang’s relic afterglow.
A strong regional tradition of high-energy physics and astrophysics—plus the aspirations of one young researcher—brought the High-Altitude Water Cherenkov Gamma-ray Observatory to Mexico.
A collaboration with fewer than 100 members has played an important role in Fermilab’s ongoing partnership with Latin American scientists and institutions.
Scholars return home to forge paths for future physicists where few exist.
Scientists working at CERN have started tests of a new neutrino detector prototype that uses a promising technology called “dual phase.”
A series of short physics schools organized in collaboration with CERN has had an outsized impact on the careers of scientists from Latin America.
In the last few decades, Argentina and Chile have proven themselves prime spots for astronomical observation—a status that has been a boon in many ways for both countries.
