LHC reveals hints of new physics in particle decays

The LHCb detector was designed to examine particles called mesons, watching them decay through time after high-energy collisions of other fundamental particles. The LHCb Collaboration was looking at decays of particles called D-mesons, which can in turn decay into kaons and pions. LHCb, one of the six separate experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, is particularly suited for examining what is called "CP violation" – slight differences in behaviour if… Leer más »LHC reveals hints of new physics in particle decays
