One of the big, recent innovations by the CMS collaboration—a new trigger installed in their experiment at the Large Hadron Collider—has produced its first data set. The analysis of this data has started. Scientists expect it will either reveal new physics or set more stringent limits in the search for long-lived particles.
Scientists at Fermilab have received funding from the DOE Office of Technology Transitions and the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management to develop devices that generate particles to be accelerated in compact accelerators. The final result could be a machine for metal 3D printing and other applications.
