Forward Search Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider

The University of California, Irvine was founded with a mission to catalyze the community and enhance lives through rigorous academics, cutting-edge research, and dedicated public service. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the border of France and Switzerland accelerates counter-rotating beams of protons to the largest energies ever achieved and collides these beams at a… Continue Reading

University of California, Los Angeles

Established in 1994, the Galactic Center Group, headquartered at the University of California Los Angeles, is dedicated to researching the innermost regions of the Milky Way to understand the physics and astrophysics of supermassive black holes. Black holes are regions in space with a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape… Continue Reading

Yale University: A Tabletop Experiment to Detect Time-reversal Violating Physics in a Nucleus

The Yale Corporation is the governing board and policy-making body for Yale University, where the research team working on the following project is based. This grant supports an experiment to probe for new particles and forces that could explain the predominance of matter over antimatter in the universe. Following the Big Bang, an equal number… Continue Reading

Regents of the University of California at Berkeley: Microwave Cavity Research and Development

The Regents of the University of California is the governing board of the University of California, where the research team working on the following project is based. This grant is part of a collaboration among three universities that aims to improve the sensitivity and search rate of axion dark matter detection techniques. Axions are theoretical… Continue Reading
