  • That smashing protons together at ~14 TeV is going to infect PCs the world over with a virus?

    A Very Cool, Very Big Machine

  • (A TeV is a trillion electron volts, an energy equivalent to about a thousand proton masses.)

    Final Pieces of the CMS Puzzle

  • In the absence of extreme fine-tuning, the stability of the standard model demands that there be new physics not far above the weak scale - usually referred to as the TeV scale.

    Identifying Dark Matter

  • A TeV is a terraelectronvolt, not a trillion electric volts.

    PC Authority

  • Paul Leyderman, Chicago, USA I applaud your story on Large Hadron Collider reaching the energy of 7 trillion electron volts (now I actually know what "TeV" stands for!).
