Particle physics is an exciting branch of science that looks at subatomic particles and the fundamental components of matter.
Whether it is the hunt for the fabled Higgs boson and other elusive particles, spotting "ghostly" neutrinos or the discovery of an exotic new state of matter, Live Science's expert writers and editors guide you through the biggest discoveries at the tiniest level with the latest news, features and articles about particle physics.
Scientists have created the world's first nanophotonic electron accelerator, which speeds negatively charged particles with mini laser pulses and is small enough to fit on a coin.
Reference The strong force is one of the four fundamental forces of nature. Learn how it fits into the Standard Model of particle physics.
Scientists at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have used 60,000 neutrinos to create the first map of the Milky Way made with matter and not light.
Helium is the simplest element in the periodic table with more than one particle in its nucleus, yet state of the art theory and experiments on it don't add up.
By shining a strong beam of light through two chemical compounds, scientists discovered a unique new state of matter made of particles called excitons.
In the early universe, gravity may have been capable of creating light, a new theoretical paper finds.
Researchers replicated the classic double slit experiment using lasers, but their slits are in time not space.
Signatures of neutrinos, or ghostly particles that rarely interact with others, were tentatively spotted in the Large Hadron Collider in 2021. Now, physicists have confirmed they are real.
The most precise clock ever made could hold time accurately for the entire age of the universe.
