  • n. Plural form of superpartner.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • It also predicts a whole new population of elementary particles - called "superpartners" to the particles physicists already know about - one of which could be the dark matter that pervades the universe.

  • The collider might also reveal yet another set of particles, the "superpartners," needed to bolster the case for String Theory, a "theory of everything" that proposes the existence of six extra dimensions and a universe constructed of tiny vibrating strings.

    A Grand Experiment

  • In terms of what other discoveries might come out of the experiments, Hawking said that the experiment could discover 'superpartners', particles that would be "supersymmetric partners" to particles already known about.

  • My money's on the LHC won't find 'superpartners' black-holes or the 'Higgs particle; the


  • In addition to allowing a light enough Higgs particle, this theory can also contain light stops (the superpartners of the top quark), which can help to achieve a strongly first order phase transition.

    Matter v Antimatter II: Electroweak Baryogenesis

  • The discovery that makes sense is supersymmetry, i.e. the superpartners of some of the Standard Model particles.

  • So, unless someone comes up with a new way to fix the CC moduli in Type IIA, getting low scale superpartners from Type IIA is problematic.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • If the LHC sees superpartners, it will probably give us some strong clues about how SUSY-breaking is mediated, which in turn could give us strong clues about the sorts of string constructions we might be dealing with.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • As long as we can derive the spectrum of superpartners or at least find some nontrivial relations between them, that is a real prediction.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • Scientists will then spend the next several years sifting through piles of data trying to recognize black holes and Higgs bosons and superpartners in the data.
