The ATLAS detector at CERN's Large Hadron Collider.
Note: This article was originally published by Symmetry magazine. Read the original article.
The Large Hadron Collider plays with Albert Einstein's famous equation, E = mc², to transform matter into energy and then back into different forms of matter. But on rare occasions, it can skip the first step and collide pure energy - in the form of electromagnetic waves.
Last year, the ATLAS experiment at CERN's LHC observed two photons , particles of light, ricocheting off one another and producing two new photons. This year, scientists have...

Berkeley Team Plays Key Role in Analysis of Particle Interactions That Produce Matter From Light

Berkeley Team Plays Key Role in Analysis of Particle Interactions That Produce Matter From Light

This image shows a reconstruction of a particle event at CERN's ATLAS detector that produced W bosons from photons, which are particles of light.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory played a key role in an analysis of data from the world's largest particle collider that found proof of rare, high-energy particle interactions in which matter was produced from light.
Simone Pagan Griso, a Berkeley Lab physicist and Divisional Fellow who coordinated the efforts of the Berkeley Lab team, said his team found about 174 particle interactions that...
