Where Has The Antimatter Gone: Physics at CERN

By Richard Gray, Science Correspondent of  The Telegraph

Large Hadron Collider: results hint at where all the antimatter has gone.

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have seen tantalising clues that may help to explain why the universe around us is made from matter rather than its opposite form antimatter.

Researchers hunting for antimatter at CERN, the city sized science complex where the LHC is based, have found that particles of matter decay differently from their antimatter cousins.

Current theories suggest that after the Big Bang that created the universe, there were equal amounts of matter and antimatter created.

However, when particles of matter meet their antimatter opposites, they annihilate each other with an explosion of energy. ………………..

Physics: Simulations

The simulations of Modern Physics at BS level are created by:

Mr. Naveed Alam, Lecturer Dept. of Physics, Federal Urdu University of Arts, Sciences & Technology ( FUUAST ). Karachi Campus.

These simulations are part of physics workshop spread over nearly 6 months. It was funded by HEC for the college teachers of Karachi. The workshop was conducted in Dept. of Computer Science, FUUAST with Dr. Tahira as project director and a team of three teachers/instructors.

Tao Framework is used to embed OpenGL in C#. The simulation project is open source and requires at least DOT NET 3.0.

Modern Physics topics simulated in the project are listed below.

  1. Barrier Tunnelingcrystal
  2. Blackbody Radiation
  3. Compton Effect
  4. Crystal Structure
  5. Energy Bands
  6. Fission
  7. General Theory of Relativity
  8. Harmonic Oscillatorquarks01
  9. Particle in a Box
  10. Photoelectric Effect
  11. Quark Model
  12. Radioactivity
  13. Special Theory of Relativity
  14. Structure of Atom
  15. Wave Nature of Matter.
