Spooky physics: 50 years of Bell’s theorem
For this frightful Halloween, JPhys+ is focussing on Einstein’s “spooky action at a distance,” non-locality and in particular Bell’s Theorem by highlighting a Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical Special Issue on 50 Years of Bell’s Theorem. As highlighted… Read More ›
Finding ultra-high energy B-hadrons in high energy physics
Professor Todd Huffman tells us about a new technique that could dramatically, and simply, increase the sensitivity of ATLAS detectors to B hadrons.
An interview with Stephen King, physicist
“In a nutshell, we live in exciting times where theory and experiment are working hand in hand in particle physics towards revealing the answers to the deep and pressing questions left unanswered by the Standard Model.”
