PAPERCLIP What is hiding in the proton?

28-05-2019

In a new 3 minute PAPERCLIP video Nikhef-theoretician Juan Rojo (VUAmsterdam) explains a paper submitted to Physical Review Letters about how to find out if any new physics is hiding in the proton.  Although new particles might be elusive, their presence turns out be detectable by indirect effects among quarks and gluons at high energy proton collisions.

In the PAPERCLIP project Nikhef researchers explain new papers on video in under 3 minutes. With just words, some sheets of blank paper and a pen. Real particle physics, explained in a simple way.

More about the proton (discovered exactly one century ago this year) in the new CERN Courier magazine.
