Dibosons Keep Blossoming in CDF

Thursday, August 13, 2009 - 17:49 in Physics & Chemistry

A couple of months ago I wrote here about the first observation of a process called "diboson production", a quite rare occurrence in hadronic collisions: for the first time, the CDF collaboration could observe that rare process in events containing hadronic jets, which are usually riddled by enormous backgrounds. The significance of that result, which added no real information to our knowledge of subnuclear physics, was stressed in my article to be the demonstration that similar kinds of events can indeed be mined for rare signals despite the large backgrounds. read more
