In nuclear physics and particle physics, the weak interaction, which is also often called the weak force or weak nuclear force, is the mechanism of interaction between subatomic particles that is responsible for the radioactive decay of atoms. Gargamelle was a heavy liquid bubble chamber detector in operation at CERN between and It was designed to detect neutrinos and antineutrinos, which were produced with a beam from the Proton Synchrotron (PS) between and , before the detector was moved to the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS). In an irreparable crack was discovered in the bubble chamber, and the .

Attempts to construct a renormalizable theory of weak interaction resulted in a uniﬁed theory of electromagnetic and weak interactions – the electroweak theory [3, 4] with two major predictions. The ﬁrst prediction was the existence alongside with the charged weak current also of a neutral weak by:
The discovery involved the search from two types of events: one involving the interaction of a neutrino with an electron in the liquid; in the other the neutrino scattered from a hadron (proton or neutron). The signature of a neutral current event was an isolated vertex from which only hadrons were produced. Soon thereafter, weak neutral currents were observed, the first of a long line of experimental discoveries confirming predictions of the model. By , “A Model of Leptons” was the most cited high-energy physics paper on record, a position it held for more than 30 years—an astonishing run that cannot be eclipsed earlier than the year

The discovery of these neutral currents in was crucial experimental support for the unification of electromagnetic and weak interactions in electroweak theory. This theory – for which Sheldon Glashow, Abdus Salam and Steven Weinberg received the Nobel Prize in Physics in – became one of the pillars of the Standard Model.
The weak force, also referred to as the weak nuclear force or weak interaction, is the controlling force involved in charged current and neutral current interactions, including beta decay, as described in detail in Hall of Fame, Part IX of this book. Beta decay involves the conversion of a.
The discovery of weak neutral currents in Gargamelle ranks certainly as one of the most important milestones in particle physics. The establishment of the neutral component of the weak interaction validated its SU(2) structure with a triplet of W gauge bosons.
Thus it was the first crucial step in the confirmation of the electroweak Standard : Michel Davier. The discovery in of "weak neutral currents," weak interactions mediated by a neutral carrier, was the first experimental evidence for the existence of the Z.
particle and hence for the validity of the electroweak theory. After this discovery, the direct observation of W and Z particles became the preeminent imperative of particle physics.
The review describes in sect. 2 the discovery of weak neutral currents. The discovery has been the subject of several symposia, see for instance . Section 3 outlines the electroweak theory, followed by a broad selection of relevant experimenal results.

The use of low energy weak interactions to probe novel aspects of hadron structure is also discussed. 1Cited by: In particle physics, the electroweak interaction or electroweak force is the unified description of two of the four known fundamental interactions of nature: electromagnetism and the weak interaction.
Although these two forces appear very different at everyday low energies, the theory models them as two different aspects of the same force. Above the unification energy, on the order of GeV, they.

In the early studies of natural radioactive materials, radiation was classified by its electric charge into α-rays (Z = 2, 4 He-nuclei), ß-rays (Z = -1, electrons) and γ-rays (Z = 0, photons).
Two years after the discovery of the positron in cosmic rays, Curie and Joliot () demonstrated the emission of positrons (“ β +-radiation ”) from artificial radioactive material.

The interaction of a neutrino with a nucleon can be reduced to its interaction with quarks. Isotopic properties of the weak neutral current play an important role in the analysis of weak interactions involving nucleons.
Moreover, the neutral currents must result in breaking of mirror symmetry in electron–nucleon or muon–nucleon interactions. After the discovery, made at CERN, of the existence of neutral weak currents, mediated by the Z boson foreseen in the standard model, the physicists Salam, Glashow and Weinberg received the Nobel Prize in Physics for their electroweak theory.
Before we review those properties in detail, let us take a moment the weak-neutral-current interactions mediated by the Z0 gauge boson, predicted the masses of Z0 and the mediator of the charged-current weak interaction, W, and demonstrated that the masses of the quarks and charged After the discovery of neutral currents and the File Size: KB.The Zboson adds new interactions, ones with neutral currents.
