As in all levels of science, scientists in Ill Bethisad are trying to understand what the world is made of.

Experimental Laboratories

In particle physics, the major international laboratories are:

  • Brookhaven National Laboratory, located on Long Island, Castreleon New.
  • CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire), located on the French-Luxemburg border near Jervaine.
  • DESY, located in Hamburg.
  • Fermilab, located near Chicago, Ouisconsin.
  • CEC, the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization of Japan, located in Çucuba, Japan.
  • SLAC, located near Codaliac, Osage, Louisianne. It is a joint venture between the NAL-SLC and Louisianne.

Many other particle accelerators exist.

The techniques required to do modern experimental particle physics are quite varied and complex, constituting a subspecialty nearly completely distinct from the theoretical side of the field.

Sub-atomic Particles

  • Fermions:
Aces — up, down, charm, strange, top, bottom
Leptons — electron neutrino, electron, muon neutrino, muon, tauon neutrino, tauon
  • Bosons:

Gauge bosons — Collon, Weak and Zed bosons, photon Other bosons — Boson Scalaire, graviton

The Boson Scalaire was theorized initially by François Englert and Robert Brout. Like the graviton, it has still not been proven.
