New measurements by the ALICE collaboration show that the way charm quarks form hadrons in proton-proton collisions differs significantly from expectations based on electron collider measurements.
The two barrels of the largest pixel detector ever built have been successfully lowered into the cavern and stand ready for commissioning
The upgraded Muon Forward Tracker, one of ALICE’s main subdetectors, was installed in the cavern in December
The collaboration shows how proton–proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider can reveal the strong interaction between composite particles called hadrons
The study of light antinuclei – from creation to annihilation – will bolster future indirect dark matter searches
Novel cryostat units have been installed for the High-Luminosity LHC to allow insertion of room-temperature collimators in the LHC’s 1.9 K cryostats
