Posted November 08, 2018 04:28:40The concept of a “supercollide” is not a new one.
Scientists are still studying supercolliders that can be created by the collision of two very massive objects.
But one theory proposes that the “super” might be an acronym for “super high energy”.
This week, scientists at the University of California at Berkeley unveiled the results of a supercomputing experiment that could be the first to use the “SuperCollider” name.
The Berkeley team found that the collision between two extremely massive particles – such as an electron or an antigravity field – produced a massive energy that could generate a super-strong, nearly-infinite “super collider”.
This is the first time physicists have used a “Super Collider” name in a supercomputer, said Dr Benoit Deloatch, lead author of the study.
“In our work, we used the name because we know it has been used in physics for a long time and that the physics is based on this theory,” he said.
“SuperColliders are known for the incredible amount of energy they can produce, which we believe is the reason why we are so fascinated with them.”
In the Berkeley experiment, researchers created a supercollider using a special computer model that simulated a collision between a neutron and a helium atom.
This simulated collision created a huge “super-conductor”, a superhigh-energy field that created a “massive particle” that could create a super high-energy “super collision”.
“We think it’s very likely that this super-collider would create the “high-field” of a high-velocity particle collider,” said Dr Deloach.
“The high-field of a collision is basically a powerful magnetic field that could hold the high-speed particle in place, as opposed to the more typical “field” that a normal collider has,” he added.
The supercollide was able to produce the “large, high-density field” because it had so much energy that the particle “can’t be broken down” by normal means, such as collision, said lead author Dr Delonk.
“It was a powerful collision, and the resulting field can hold the particle in its place,” he told New Scientist.
“You can think of it as the gravitational potential energy of the particle.
It is a superfield.”

The researchers also found that if the superfield is superstrong, the resulting “gravity wave” would be more than twice as strong as a standard gravity wave.””
This is because we can imagine the particle colliding with this superfield, but not get it broken down by ordinary collisions.”
The researchers also found that if the superfield is superstrong, the resulting “gravity wave” would be more than twice as strong as a standard gravity wave.
“Gravity waves are not only more energetic than normal gravity waves, but they are so powerful that they can be much stronger than gravity waves from ordinary colliders,” said lead researcher Dr Mark Zuckerman.
“We are very excited about this result, because we think that it could lead to the first demonstration of the concept of supercolliding,” Dr Zuckman said.
This “superfield” is one of the strongest, most powerful types of “gibbons” – super-fast, extremely large “gates” of superfast, ultra-strong particles that allow the particles to move extremely fast and be in a “vacuum” of space.
“That would be a big step towards making super colliders, and potentially even the first-ever “superhigh-speed” collider that would be able, as a result of its tremendous energy, to accelerate extremely fast particles,” said Mark Zauerman, lead researcher at the Berkeley Supercomputer Center.
“This is exciting news, and one that could very well lead to a future generation of supercomputers.”
