Putting quarks on a virtual scale

Graphic representation of CKM unitary traiangle Lattice QCD

Global fit to experimental flavor measurements combined with Standard Model theory, known as the CKM unitarity triangle. Deviations from the CKM paradigm would manifest themselves as inconsistencies between the colored bands. Great opportunities exist for improving the power of the search for Beyond the Standard Model effects in flavor physics by improving lattice QCD calculations.

diagram showing the layout for the LHCb detector

This diagram shows the layout for the LHCb detector, which is part of the LHC project at CERN. The main purpose of this detector is to look for rare decays of a heavy quark known as 'bottom,' a version of the down quark that is found in protons and neutrons. In particular, decays by a process known as 'CP violation' will be studied to investigate nature's preference for matter over antimatter.
