Swansea University physicists, as leading members of the ALPHA collaboration at CERN, have demonstrated laser cooling of […]

Recently discovered ripples of spacetime called gravitational waves could contain evidence to prove the theory that life survived the Big Bang because of a phase transition that allowed neutrino particles to reshuffle matter and anti-matter, explains a new study by an international team of researchers. How we were saved from a complete annihilation is […]

Animation An element that could hold the key to the long-standing mystery around why there is much more matter than antimatter in our universe has been discovered in Physics research involving the University of Strathclyde. The study has discovered that an isotope of the element thorium possesses the most pear-shaped […]

A view of the underground ALICE detector used in the study of the antideuteron Credit: CERN The ALICE collaboration has presented new results on the production rates of antideuterons based on data collected at the highest collision energy delivered so far at the Large Hadron Collider. The antideuteron is composed […]
