Professors Barberis and Wood have been awarded a three-year grant for research to be completed at CERN in Switzerland, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)—the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator used by physicists around the world to track and identify particle collisions.
Nicholas Haubrich has been a busy man while on co-op. When he’s not working long hours on location, he’s traveling through Europe.
Associate dean and physics professor George Alverson received an award from CERN.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, has been making groundbreaking discoveries in nuclear and particle physics since its establishment in 1952. And there is a team of four Northeastern faculty who are involved with one of its projects.
When it came time to choose a college, Nick DePorzio found a piece of information that solidified his choice to attend Northeastern. One of the university’s more than 2,900 co-op sites is CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, which hosts the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.
Northeastern University is part of an international consortium working to make all data from the field of high-energy particle physics available to the public.
In March of last year, scientists working with the Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland, identified the Higgs boson.
Some people are not making plans for the New Year. From hiding in bomb shelters to sharpening their survival skills, doomsday theorists are preparing for judgment day, which the Mayan calendar predicts will take place on Friday.
