Kelly Swanson (left, with Wim Leemans), a doctoral student in the BELLA Center, took top honors in a speed-storytelling “Grad Slam” event where she spoke about tabletop accelerators. Serena Persichelli, who is working on conceptual studies for ALS-U, won CERN’s Future Circular Collider Diversity Prize. Both are with the Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics Division.
The ALICE experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, which has collaborators from the Lab’s Nuclear Science Division, this week reported a new result showing that proton collisions can show similar patterns to those observed in collisions of heavy atomic nuclei. Scientists observed enhanced production of “strange hadrons,” which contain “strange quarks,” in certain proton collisions. More>
