B meson

Antimatter in the universe is extremely rare; the universe is made pretty much entirely out of matter. DZero digs deeper into a previous, unusual result measuring the difference between matter and antimatter.

More than expected

CDF observes approximately 740 events in the muon decay mode. CDF looked for a signature of three muons, the mass of two oppositely charged muons being consistent with that of the J/ψ particle.

Scientists of the DZero collaboration at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced Friday, May 14, that they have found evidence for significant violation of matter-antimatter symmetry in the behavior of particles containing bottom quarks beyond what is expected in the current theory, the Standard Model of particle physics.

Scientists of the CDF collaboration at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced today (September 25, 2006) that they have met the exacting standard to claim discovery of astonishingly rapid transitions between matter and antimatter: 3 trillion oscillations per second.

Scientists of the DZero collider detector collaboration at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory have announced that their data on the properties of a subatomic particle, the B_s meson (“B sub s”), suggest that the particle oscillates between matter and antimatter in one of nature’s fastest rapid-fire processes-more than 17 trillion times per second.
