  • ATLAS observes light scattering off light 03.18.2019
    ATLAS observes light scattering off light achintya Mon, 03/18/2019 - 16:19 (Image: CERN) Light-by-light scattering is a very rare phenomenon in which two photons – particles of light – interact, producing another pair of photons. This process was among the earliest predictions of quantum electrodynamics (QED), the quantum theory of electromagnetism, and is forbidden by […]
