Geneva, 10 August 2016. In a paper published by the journal JHEP today, the MoEDAL experiment at CERN narrows the window of where to search for a hypothetical particle, the magnetic monopole. Over the last decades, experiments have been trying to find evidence for magnetic monopoles at accelerators, including at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Such particles were first predicted by physicist Paul Dirac in the 1930s but have never been observed so far.
In this section you will find CERN's latest updates and press releases.
Geneva and Chicago, 5 August 2016. Particle physicists are showcasing a wealth of brand new results from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments at CERN at the “ICHEP 2016” conference in Chicago. With a flood of new data, the experiment collaborations can now dive in and explore at the new energy frontier of 13 TeV, following last year’s first glimpse of physics at this unprecedented energy level. LHC collaborations are presenting more than 100 different new results, including many analyses based on newly taken 2016 data.
On behalf of SESAME
Allan, Jordan, and Manchester, UK, 27 July 2016. SESAME, the pioneering new regional laboratory for the Middle East and neighbouring countries, today publicly announced its first call for proposals for experiments.
Liverpool/Geneva, 15 June 2016. The COLLIDE International Award – a new collaboration between CERN and FACT1 – was granted today to South Korean artist, Yunchul Kim. Honorary Mentions were also awarded to Mexican artist, Julieta Aranda, and UK artist James Bridle.
Geneva, 13 June 2016. CERN1 today announced the winners of its 2016 Beamline for Schools competition. Two teams of high-school students, “Pyramid hunters” from Poland and “Relatively Special” from the United Kingdom, have been selected to travel to CERN in September to carry out their own experiments using a CERN accelerator beam. The winners were selected from a total of 151 teams from 37 countries around the world, adding up to more than 1250 high-school students.
