The Tesla experiment

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

On May 31, about 50 miles from the Canadian border, an electric car struggled up steep hills, driving along at 40 miles per hour. The sun was coming up and rain was coming down. Things were looking bleak. The car, which usually plotted the route to the nearest charging station, refused to give directions. “It

Grégoire Besse, doctorant au CNRS en physique nucléaire théorique, nous confie son intérêt pour la médiation des sciences. C’est en débutant ma thèse que je me suis aperçu du lien inéluctable entre la recherche et la vulgarisation. J’ai donc progressivement choisi de me lancer dans cette démarche afin d’expliquer mes recherches et de les rendre

MicroBooNE sees first cosmic muons

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

This article appeared in Fermilab Today on Aug. 12, 2015. A school bus-sized detector packed with 170 tons of liquid argon has seen its first particle footprints. On Aug. 6, MicroBooNE, a liquid-argon time projection chamber, or LArTPC, recorded images of the tracks of cosmic muons, particles that shower down on Earth when cosmic rays

This article appeared in Fermilab Today on Aug. 11, 2015. If you’ve ever looked at a graphic of Fermilab’s future Mu2e experiment, you’ve likely noticed its distinctive, center s-shaped section. Tall and wide enough for a person to fit inside it, this large, curving series of magnets, called the transport solenoid, is perhaps the experiment’s

This article appeared in Fermilab Today on Aug. 10, 2015. In 1995, physicists working on the Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector, or LSND, at Los Alamos National Laboratory stumbled upon some curious results. The experiment, whose goal was to investigate oscillations between the three different flavors of the elusive neutrino, saw evidence that there might be

Impressionnant, excitant et plein de nouvelles perspectives. Cela résume mon impression alors que se termine aujourd’hui la conférence de physique des particules de la Société européenne de physique (EPS) à Vienne. Nous avons été exposés à une quantité impressionnante de nouvelles données. Non seulement les expériences du Grand collisionneur de hadrons (LHC) du CERN ont

Impressive, exciting and eye-opening. This is how I would summarize the European Physics Society (EPS) particle physics conference that is ending today in Vienna. The participants were treated to an impressive amount of new data. Not only had the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments at CERN finalised most of their analyses on the entire set

La conférence de physique des particules de la Société de Physique Européenne (EPS) se poursuit à Vienne, les sessions parallèles ayant cédé la place aux sessions plénières. Les présentateurs et présentatrices ont maintenant la dure tâche de récapituler les centaines de résultats présentés jusqu’ici à la conférence et d’en tirer une vue d’ensemble. Durant les

Yesterday, at the European Physics Society (EPS) Particle Physics conference in Vienna, we moved from parallel sessions to plenary sessions. The tasks of the speakers is now to summarize the hundreds of results presented so far at the conference, and draw the big picture. For the past two years, the Large Hadron Collider underwent major

La plupart des physiciens et physiciennes sont d’accord: la physique est bien trop passionnante pour la réserver seulement aux scientifiques. Et pour la première fois, la Société Européenne de Physique (EPS) y a consacré une session entière samedi lors de sa conférence de physique des particules en cours à Vienne. Plusieurs y ont rapporté des
