LHC Maintenance shutdown in 2011

• March, 2010

LHC Maintenance shutdown in 2011 Katie Yurkewicz The LHC will shut down for about one year – but not until late 2011 What the BBC reported yesterday is true, but is not exactly news. A revised schedule for the LHC’s next few years was announced in early February by CERN. According to the revised schedule, the LHC will run at a maximum energy of 3.5 TeV per beam for a period of about 18 months, starting with the first collisions at 3.5 TeV per beam

Physicist Discovers How to Teleport Energy

Physicist Discovers How to Teleport Energy First, they teleported photons, then atoms and ions. Now one physicist has worked out how to do it with energy, a technique that has profound implications for the future of physics. In 1993, Charlie Bennett at IBM’s Watson Research Center in New York State and a few pals showed how to transmit quantum information from one point in space to another without traversing the intervening space. The technique relies on the strange quantum phenomenon called entanglement, in which two

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

• August, 2008

The largest particle accelerator in the world, the LHC of the European Center for Physics, will start in August , as being told by CERN in Geneva. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a circular tunnel 27 kilometers long at the height of Geneva and the Swiss-French border. In this tunnel particles are fired at nearly the speed of light that in turn come into conflict with each other. This collision creates a multitude of new particles. At full speed and thanks to more than
