Christophe Royon - 2022 Gold Medal Award from the Mexican Physical Society, Division of Particle and Fields
Christophe Royon, Foundation Distinguished Professor at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, was awarded the 2022 gold medal of the Mexican Physical Society, Division of Particle and Fields "for his leadership in the discovery of odd-gluon state odderon from elastic proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions at TOTEM and D0 detectors, his contributions to QCD and physics beyond the Standard Model, and for his support to the Mexican High Energy Physics community.
New technologies developed at the University of Kansas are revealing radiation with unprecedented precision and giving a better understanding of the secrets of matter from the scale of the Universe to quarks.
The TOTEM collaboration at the LHC, in collaboration with the DØ collaboration at the former Tevatron collider at Fermilab, have announced the discovery of the odderon – an elusive three-gluon state predicted almost 50 years ago.
Women Supporting Women in the Sciences (WS2) is an international initiative unifying and supporting graduate and professional-level women and allies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), while providing o
A University of Kansas astronomer played a key role on the team that today announced the first-ever discovery of a planet orbiting a white dwarf star. The finding, published in Nature, shows the likely presence of a Jupiter-sized planet, named WD 1856 b, orbiting the smaller star remnant every 34…
