Moving at top speed, your average ant will create roughly the equivalent of one trillion electron volts
But no matter how fast these electrons spiral, they can't radiate away the 73 billion and 95 billion electron volts
the two photons carried.
for commercialization of a revolutionary microcalorimeter-based X-ray detector with an energy resolution of two electron volts
, some 50 times better than conventional semiconductor-based detectors.
The facilities will include a proton synchrotron, in which protons will be accelerated to 50 billion electron volts
, and a neutron diffusing facility.
When positrons (also called positive electrons) collide with ordinary, negatively charged electrons, they mutually destroy each other and spawn gamma rays that have a very specific energy: 511,000 electron volts
These extremely energetic particles become ever more scarce at the highest energies and, except for the three ultra-high-energy particles, no cosmic rays have been seen with more energy than 30-40,000,000 trillion electron volts
By 1954, a particle accelerator capable of accelerating protons to an energy of 5 to 6 billion electron volts
(BeV) had been built at the University of California.
and] masses of at least five billion electron volts
The work used two experiments at the LHC, including the Compact Muon Solenoid (shown here), which detects protons smashed together with energies of up to 8 trillion electron volts
In the process of doing so, we have also created a new high-performance light source technology covering the spectral regions ranging from infrared light, through the visible spectrum all the way to 'soft' X-rays with energies as high as 2,000 electron volts
This year, the LHC's protons collided with 13 trillion electron volts
of energy; the machine was running at 8 trillion electron volts
when it exposed overwhelming evidence for the Higgs boson in 2012 (SN: 7/28/12, p.
In Fermi's all-sky maps of very-high-energy gamma radiation (1 billion to 100 billion electron volts
per photon), the bubbles at first went unrecognized.
