US joins the world in a new era of research at the Large Hadron Collider
Scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider started recording data from the highest-energy particle collisions achieved on Earth. This new data will enable an international collaboration to study the Higgs boson, search for dark matter and develop a more complete understanding of the laws of nature. Oak Ridge National Laboratory led an equipment upgrade for LHC's A Large Ion Collider Experiment, which aims to learn more about conditions of the early universe.

Visualizing how radiation bombardment boosts superconductivity
Study shows how heavy-ion induced atomic-scale defects in iron-based superconductors 'pin' potentially disruptive quantum vortices, enabling high currents to flow unimpeded. The study opens a new way forward for designing and understanding superconductors that can operate in demanding high-current, high magnetic field applications, such as zero-energy-loss power transmission lines and energy-generating turbines.
