Highlights:

  • The LHCb experiment at CERN is a hotbed of new and outstanding physics results
  • Tracing back the decay of five newfound excited states of the subatomic particle ‘baryon’ at LHCb.
  • Particle detectors at CERN.
  • Omega-c-zero decays via the strong force into another baryon, called Xi-c-plus, and a kaon K.
  • Omega-c-zero is baryon.
  • Particle with three quarks, containing two strange and one charm quark, containing two strange and one charm quark.
  • Now quantum numbers of these new particles.
  • Characteristic numbers used to identify the properties of a specific particle.
