Dr. Biswas publishes his research on connecting string theory with LHC physics

String theory is widely believed to be the best candidate for a unified theory of all the four fundamental forces in nature. Recently, Dr. Biswas along with his collaborator, Dr. Okada, from University of Alabama investigated whether a particular "stringy" feature, "nonlocality", can be detected at the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) run that is currently underway. LHC is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator consisting of a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets with a number of accelerating structures to boost the energy of the particles along the way.
