Their topics include the Higgs boson in the Standard Model, searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson at the Tevatron Collider, observation of the diphoton decay of the Higgs boson and measurements of its properties, evidence that the Higgs boson decays to lambda leptons, Higgs boson search in the WW to lvqq final state, and Higgs combination and properties of the Higgs boson.
And, earlier this year, physicists at the DZero collaboration - one of the two experiments conducted at Fermilab's Tevatron Collider before it was shut down in 2011 - announced the discovery of X(5568), believed to contain four distinct flavors of quarks and antiquarks - bottom, strange, up and down.
Experiments at the LHC at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland and the Tevatron collider at Fermilab near Chicago in Illinois, USA are the only ones that have ever seen top quarks-the heaviest elementary particles ever observed.
Contributions include a biography of Wolfgang Panofsky, research on bottomonium, the LSND and MiniBooNE experiments, axions, density functional theory and Fermi superfluids, fluid dynamics in relativistic collisions, supernovae, muonic hydrogen, CP violation in the Bs system, mixing angle evaluation of the Standard Model, liquid argon detectors, partonic structure of the proton, photodetectors in particle physics experimentation, supersymmetry, superheavy nuclei, electron-positron annihilation, two chapters on the Tevatron collider, two-neutrino double-beta decay, and lepton flavor-violation.
This exceeds the previous world record of 4.024 x 1032cm-2 s-1, which was set by the US Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory's Tevatron collider in 2010.
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory's Tevatron collider. The Tevatron collider, located in Batavia, Ill., had held the record since 2001.
The previous world record was set by a the US Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory's Tevatron collider in 2001, when it reached 0.98 TeV.
This scheme, called high-energy electron cooling, helped the Tevatron collider at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Batavia, Ill., last October to shatter the 23-year-old world record for particle-collision rates.
In February, a team of researchers at the DZero collaboration - one of the two experiments conducted at the Fermilab's Tevatron Collider before it was shut down in 2011 - (http://www.ibtimes.com/fermilab-scientists-discover-four-flavor-tetraquark-2324633) announced the discovery of a new particle.
Experiments at the Tevatron collider at Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois, have previously searched for excited quarks, and ruled out their existence at masses up to 870 gigaelectronvolts.
Although previous attempts to create the particle in accelerators have failed, the new midrange estimate lies at an energy scale easily attainable in the next run of Fermilab's renovated Tevatron Collider, scheduled to begin March 2001, the researchers say.
A team of researchers analyzing the data gathered during the final run of Fermilab's Tevatron collider (http://news.fnal.gov/2016/02/dzero-discovers-a-new-particle-consistent-with-a-tetraquark/) announced the discovery of a new particle Friday.
