View Resource Lights out at LEP

The Large Electron Positron Collider (LEP) at the Swiss-based European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) closes its doors for good this month. This is after the LEP experiments produced collisions compatible with the production of the elusive Higgs boson, a theoretical particle thought to be related to the formation of particle mass. Unfortunately for LEP, the new data were too inconclusive to...
View Resource ALICE: A Large Ion Collider Experiment at CERN LHC

This website features the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) collaboration's aim to "study the physics of strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities, where the formation of a new phase of matter, the quark-gluon plasma, is expected." The Public section of the website features the construction plan for the detector located at CERN, which will be optimized for heavy-ion physics....
View Resource DESY: The ZEUS Experiment

ZEUS is a collaboration of 450 physicists who are operating a large particle detector at the electron-proton collider HERA at the DESY laboratory in Hamburg. Researchers can find links to the ZEUS physics groups including High Q2, Diffraction and Vector Mesons, and Heavy Flavour Physics. Along with other tasks and components, visitors can learn about the Backing Calorimeter's role in preserving...
