You need to distinguish between the virtual gravitons that appear in a quantum field theory calculation of a gravitational interaction and real gravitons that form a gravitational wave. The sort of experiment you're describing requires the emission of real graviton i.e. the emission of a gravitational wave. The trouble is that the coupling constant for the ...

Why can't gravitons be created in traditional particle accelerators? Because gravitons are hypothetical virtual particles, proposed by particle phyicists advocating an "exchange mechanism" for gravity. This exchange mechanism is modelled using virtual particles, and it's perfectly valid for electromagnetism: when the electron and the proton attract each ...

are the decay products produced totally probabilistic or can we "tune" an accelerator to increase the probability of a particular decay channel occuring? Once a particle is produced, it decays completely independently of its production. The only dependence on production occurs when, for instance, a particle is produced in an entangled state and ...

Although Supersymmetry (SUSY) - under certain assumptions - predicts the existence of Dark Matter (DM) candidate, the signals for DM are not specific to SUSY. Fist, how to detect DM at the LHC: DM will not be detected by the experiments directly as it is believed (reasonable assumption) to not interact with regular matter. Therefore the only way of ...
