Squeezing more bunches of protons onto the particle accelerator's beams increases the data-gathering rate--and the odds the Higgs boson will turn up at CERN.
Chance of discovering new physical phenomena with Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator leads CERN to postpone energy-doubling upgrade.
Large Hadron Collider circulates beams at 3.5 tera-electron-volts, bringing it closer to CERN's goal of conducting research into fundamental physics.
Large Hadron Collider engineers are ironing out wrinkles in a tremendously complicated machine that consumes about the same power as all Geneva.
With the Large Hadron Collider experiments under way, physicists are getting new data to anchor their theories.
CERN is set to run its giant particle collider for 18 to 24 months at a modest power level as it continues to check out the machinery.
The recently restarted Large Hadron Collider has become the world's most powerful particle accelerator, after setting a new record for beam intensity.
The world's largest physics experiment has seen a series of setbacks since September, but CERN is determined that "the LHC will run next year."
