LOG#172. Higgscelebration: 3 years of a Higgs-like boson!

In 2012, July 4th…We had the Higgsdependence day! A SM Higgs-like resonance was discovered at the LHC and was announced to the world. Today, we celebrate this discovery of the Higgs-like thing or particle almost 3 years ago. So let … Continue reading

LOG#150. Bohr and Doctor Who: A=mc³.

The year 2013 is coming to its end…And I have a final gift for you. An impossible post! This year was the Bohr model 100th anniversary. I have talked about this subject already, here, here and here. The hydrogen spectrum is very important in Astronomy, … Continue reading

LOG#139. The Higgs and beyond.

The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 rises new questions: 1º) Is it the SM Higgs or an impostor? It seems like a SM Higgs but…We don’t know yet for sure. 2º) Is it the ONLY Higgs-like particle or … Continue reading

LOG#137. Unparticles.

One of the most interesting ideas of the last years between theoretical particle physicists came from conformal field theories (CFT). In their last incarnation, Georgi’s unparticles. What is an unparticle? Georgi, a very known and respected theoretical physicist, speculates about … Continue reading

LOG#122. Basic Neutrinology(VII).

The observed mass and mixing both in the neutrino and quark cases could be evidence for some interfamily hierarchy hinting that the lepton and quark sectors were, indeed, a result of the existence of a new quantum number related to … Continue reading

LOG#117. Basic Neutrinology(II).

The current Standard Model of elementary particles and interactions supposes the existence of 3 neutrino species or flavors. They are neutral, upper components of “doublets” with respect to the group, the weak interaction group after the electroweak symmetry breaking, and … Continue reading

LOG#058. LHC: last 2012 data/bounds.

Today, 12/12/12, the following paper  arised in the arxiv http://arxiv.org/abs/1212.2339 This interesting paper reviews the last bounds about Beyond Stantard Model particles (both, fermions and bosons) for a large class of models until the end of this year, 2012. Particle … Continue reading

LOG#046. The Cherenkov effect.

The Cherenkov effect/Cherenkov radiation, sometimes also called Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation, is our topic here in this post. In 1934, P.A. Cherenkov was a post graduate student of S.I.Vavilov. He was investigating the luminescence of uranyl salts under the incidence of gamma … Continue reading
