View Resource Fermilab: Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

FERMILAB's Home Page is the place to go to find out about Top Quark, The Nature of Nature, and Fermilab at Work. The Nature of Nature provides a brief overview of high-energy physics, an article on how scientists do high-eneregy physics, and an article on the benefits of high-energy physics research. There is also access to The Drell Panel Report.

View Resource NN-Online

NN-Online provides a source for the physics community to access the work of current and former members of the Theoretical High Energy Physics Group of the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The work found here emphasizes the baryon-baryon interaction, including the nucleon-nucleon interaction, hyperon-nucleon interaction, antinucleon-nucleon interaction and pion-nucleon interaction....

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 Bulk Physics at a Graviton Factory

Provided by the Stanford Liner Accelerator Center (SLAC) Pre-print server, this online pre-print demonstrates that large numbers of light Kaluza Klein (KK) resonances could be produced at a future lepton-collider-based "Graviton Factory." "A general prediction of the 5-d Randall-Sundrum (RS) hierarchy model is the emergence of spin-2 KK gravitons with weak scale masses and couplings. The lowest...

View Resource Physical Reference Data

National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Physical Reference Data Web site (last mentioned in the August 16, 1996 Scout Report) provides data on physical constants, ionization, x-ray and gamma-ray, radiation dosimetry, nuclear and condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular spectroscopic data, and more. For example, within the searchable physical constants page, visitors can find...

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...
