  • Top quark
    The top quark, also known as the t quark (symbol: t) or truth quark, is the most massive of all observed elementary particles.
  • Antiproton
    The antiproton, p, (pronounced p-bar) is the antiparticle of the proton.
  • Gluon
    Gluons /ˈɡluːɒnz/ are elementary particles that act as the exchange particles (or gauge bosons) for the strong force between quarks, analogous to the exchange of photons in the electromagnetic force between two charged particles.
  • Higgs boson
    ("God Particle" redirects here. For the upcoming sci-fi film, see God Particle (film).) The Higgs boson is an elementary particle in the Standard Model of particle physics.
  • Muon
    The muon (/ˈmjuːɒn/; from the Greek letter mu (μ) used to represent it) is an elementary particle similar to the electron, with an electric charge of −1 e and a spin of 1/2, but with a much greater mass.
  • Positron
    The positron or antielectron is the antiparticle or the antimatter counterpart of the electron.
  • Quark
    A quark (/ˈkwɔːrk/ or /ˈkwɑːrk/) is an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter.
  • Tau (particle)
    The tau (τ), also called the tau lepton, tau particle, or tauon, is an elementary particle similar to the electron, with negative electric charge and a spin of 1/2.
  • Phi meson
    In particle physics, the phi meson is a vector meson formed of a strange quark and a strange antiquark.
  • D meson
    The D mesons are the lightest particle containing charm quarks.
  • Neutron radiation
    Neutron radiation is a kind of ionizing radiation which consists of free neutrons.
  • Neutral particle
    In physics, a neutral particle is a particle with no electric charge.
