Subatomic particles are an important part of the universe
These are subatomic particles, muons that are electron-like but heavier than them. They are an important part of the universe. Lab physicist Chris Pauly and a team of 200 physicists from seven countries have found that these particles behave differently than expected when they pass through a magnetic field in the lab. According to University of Contky physicist René Fatemi, this experiment has provided evidence that muons are sensitive to something that is not included in our theory so far. The initial results of the experiment named Muon g-2 are similar to those of earlier experiments. The Physics world was bustling ever since something similar was found in the 2001 experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Muons were sent circling the superconducting ring
Dr. Pauley stated that the white space in the results graph shows where the results in the new experiment were different than expected. At the same time, it has also been clarified that the probability of coincidence of these results is only one in 40 thousand. It can be fully verified on the basis of more data. The data published on Wednesday is just 6% and the complete data will take years to arrive. Muons are sometimes called fat-electrons. They are like the particles present in our battery, light and computer. They have a property called spin which makes them act like magnets. Due to this they move a lot but in the latest results, they were seen shaking more than expected. In this experiment, Muons were sent circling in a superconducting ring.
You can find answers to puzzles like Dark Matter
Based on the results, it is believed that there will be some such parts which have not been included in the theory of subatomic particles so far. Due to their effect, the muons are shaking inside the ring. So far, work has been done on the basis of standard models in which the results of experiments such as high-energy particles such as CERN’s Large Hadron Collider can be understood but it does not provide answers to many questions related to the universe. The new experiment can provide answers to puzzles such as Dark Matter. They are 207 times heavier than electrons. They are unstable and in a radioactive manner electrons and super-light particles decay in neutrinos in just 2.2 millionths of a second. They were first discovered in 1936.
