“Everyone wants to look for a signal that goes beyond the standard physics model”: Scientist at Large Hadron Collider

Nicola Neri, a senior member of the LHCb experiment, spoke to indianexpress.com about the Large Hadron Collider, the three new particles it discovered and why scientists are hoping it will yield discoveries that break the standard model of particle physics. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the biggest and most complex machine ever built by mankind, began operations again in April this year after nearly three years of maintenance and upgrades. After the particle accelerator began smashing together particles at an unprecedented energy level, CERN (the European Organisation for Nuclear Research) announced that the LHC has helped find three previously never-before-seen particles: a new kind of “pentaquark” and a pair of “tetraquarks,” which have never been observed before. Nicola Neri, a...
