In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- The use of an asymmetric collider to produce B particles was first proposed in 1987 by Pier Oddone, then head of Berkeley Lab's Physics Division and now one of the Lab's deputy directors.
- It is important too, for use in high-luminosity linear electron - positron colliders where the focus is extremely tight, to know whether or not detectors can separate collision results from background radiation.
- For technical reasons, it is easier to do that test at RHIC by colliding deuterons accelerated in one of the collider's two rings with heavy nuclei in the other ring.
- But how can we ever hope to make meaningful measurements at this scale when we have such difficulty building particle colliders to work at the comparatively lowly Higgs scale?
- You need to smash two beams head-on in a collider, because the center-of-mass energy is the sum of the energies in the two beams.
