It is the dream of all particle physicists to find a new particle or to reveal a new fundamental force. In 2012 this dream came true when the big CERN experiments ATLAS and CMS discovered the Higgs particle, predicted by theorists decades ago. Other...

Have you ever pondered what happened to our Universe after the Big Bang? When the Universe was created, each particle was produced together with its antiparticle. For example, for each electron we see now, there was a positron created. But, some 13...

New, undiscovered charged particles could be produced by the LHC, leaving tracks in CMS that look similar to tracks from Standard Model particles. If the new particle decays to other, unseen new particles inside the CMS tracker, a very striking...
