DZero

Determining the precise details of how the strong nuclear force assembles quarks into hadrons is not always easy. Disponible en español Method A: 3 quarks chromodynamic glue Step 1. Glue the quarks together. Step 2. Voila! Method A will produce a baryon; most of your more massive hadrons are baryons. The type of baryon will be determined in part by the flavor of the quarks used and how the quarks are aligned. For example, if you have glued together one…

This week saw a historic collaboration between scientists from CERN and Fermilab, as the world combination of the top quark mass was reported, using inputs from the ATLAS, CDF, CMS and DZero collaborations. Disponible en español The top quark has only ever been produced and detected in two places on Earth: at Fermilab, where the DZero and CDF collaborations first discovered this most massive particle in 1995, and at CERN, where the Large Hadron Collider generates so many top quarks…

Scientists on the CDF and DZero experiments at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory have announced that they have found the final predicted way of creating a top quark, completing a picture of this particle nearly 20 years in the making.

More than 100 scientists attended the latest DZero collaboration meeting, which took place June 13 at Princeton University. The meeting focused on analyzing the full Run II DZero data set.
