The quantum frontier : the large hadron collider by Don Lincoln( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Polish and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The highest-energy particle accelerator ever built, the Large Hadron Collider runs under the border between France and Switzerland. It leapt into action on September 10, 2008, amid unprecedented global press coverage and widespread fears that its energy would create tiny black holes that could destroy the earth." "By smashing together particles smaller than atoms, the LHC recreates the conditions hypothesized to have existed just moments after the big bang. Physicists expect it to aid our understanding of how the universe came into being and to show us much about the standard model of particle physics - even possibly proving the existence of the mysterious Higgs boson. In exploring what the collider does and what it might find, Don Lincoln explains what the LHC is likely to teach us about particle physics, including uncovering the nature of dark matter, finding micro black holes and supersymmetric particles, identifying extra dimensions, and revealing the origin of mass in the universe." "Thousands of physicists from around the globe will have access to the LHC, none of whom really knows what outcomes will be produced by the $7.7 billion project. Whatever it reveals, the results arising from the Large Hadron Collider will profoundly alter our understanding of the cosmos and the atom and stimulate amateur and professional scientists for years to come."--Jacket
The Large Hadron Collider : the extraordinary story of the Higgs boson and other stuff that will blow your mind by Don Lincoln( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 2008, scientists have conducted experiments in a hyperenergized, 17-mile supercollider beneath the border of France and Switzerland. The Large Hadron Collider is one of the wonders of the modern world -- a highly sophisticated scientific instrument designed to recreate in miniature the conditions of the universe as they existed in the microseconds following the Big Bang. Among many notable LHC discoveries, one led to the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics for revealing evidence of the existence of the Higgs boson, the so-called God particle. Physicist Don Lincoln shares an insider's account of the LHC's operational history. Lincoln offers insight into an accident that derailed the operation nine days after the collider's 2008 debut. A faulty solder joint started a chain reaction that caused a massive explosion, damaged 50 superconducting magnets, and vaporized large sections of the conductor. The crippled LHC lay dormant for over a year, while technical teams repaired the damage. Lincoln also devotes an entire chapter to the Higgs boson and Higgs field, using several extended analogies to help explain the importance of these concepts to particle physics. In the final chapter, he describes what the discovery of the Higgs boson tells us about our current understanding of basic physics and how the discovery now keeps scientists awake over a nagging inconsistency in their favorite theory
Alien universe : extraterrestrial life in our minds and in the cosmos by Don Lincoln( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If extraterrestrials exist, where are they? What is the probability that somewhere out there in the universe an Earth-like planet supports an advanced culture? Why do so many people claim to have encountered Aliens? In this gripping exploration, scientist Don Lincoln exposes and explains the truths about the belief in and the search for life on other planets. Whether you are drawn to the psychological belief in Aliens, the history of our interest in life on other planets, or the scientific possibility of Alien existence, Alien Universe is sure to hold you spellbound
The theory of everything : the quest to explain all reality by Don Lincoln( Visual )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Weltmaschine der LHC und der Beginn einer neuen Physik by Don Lincoln( Book )

Understanding the universe from quarks to the cosmos by Don Lincoln( )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The chapter discussing the hunt for the Higgs boson - currently consuming the efforts of nearly 6000 physicists - reveals drama that only big-stakes science can give. Understanding the Universe leaves the reader with a deep appreciation of the fascinating particle realm and reverence for just how much it determines the rich beauty of our universe. Since the release of the first edition, the landscape has changed. The venerable Fermilab Tevatron has ceased operations after a quarter century of extraordinary performance, to be replaced by the CERN Large Hadron Collider, an accelerator with a design energy of seven times greater than the Tevatron and a collision rate of nearly a billion collisions per second. The next few years promise to be very exciting as scientists explore this new realm. This revised edition of Understanding the Universe will leave the reader with a deep appreciation of just why physicists are so excited
The theory of everything : the quest to explain all reality( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taught by noted physicist Dr. Don Lincoln of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, this course follows the search for a theory that explains all physical reality-a theory of everything. Dr. Lincoln covers recent developments in particle physics and cosmology, plus the background needed to appreciate the centuries-long search for this holy grail of science. Only high-school-level math is used
Recent results from D0 and CDF( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A summary of the Tevatron's measurements and searches for pentaquarks and X(3872) are presented. No evidence for pentaquarks has been observed, while the X(3872) has been confirmed and some characterization has been performed. While the initial measurements are of a simple nature, the X(3872) behaves similarly to the {psi}(2S), suggesting the X(3872) may be a form of unanticipated charmonium rather than a more exotic bound state of D mesons. In addition, a selected number of lifetime measurements of b-quark carrying hadrons are presented. While preliminary, these measurements are becoming competitive in precision with the B factories. These Proceedings end with some interesting measurements of the inclusive Pt and dijet mass cross-sections of b-quark containing jets

Design and construction of a beam calorimeter for E683 at FNAL by Don Lincoln( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A steel-scintillator calorimeter has been designed to be used in a 250 GeV photon beam, and consists of approximately 10 nuclear absorption lengths of steel. Its sampling frequency is 1.5" and the sampling medium is 1/4" Kyowa SCSN-61T polystyrene based scintillator. Y7 Kyowa WLS was used to collect light into 8 Hamamatsu R2154 photomultipliers. A monitoring system has been built for the calorimeter. A LSI UV laser pumps a sample of SCSN-61T, which emits light that is subsequently shifted by Y7 and transported to the PM's via jacketted 1 mm acrylic fibers. It simulates the passage of a charged particle. A PIN photodiode also monitors the light output, for cross reference with the PM's. Interspersed among the steel and scintillator, there are 6 PWC's whose purpose is to discriminate between electromagnetic and hadronic showers. Some position information can be gathered. The PWC inter-wire spacing is approximately 1 cm. (Abstract shortened with permission of author.)
