Exposing Strings in the Laboratory with a Novel Technique

  •  AC Tahan    


String theorists have proposed that multi-national collider experiments could provide evidence for strings. The scientific community generally has been more reserved, believing possible detections would be indirect at best. Based on the theoretical prediction that if in existence strings should have resonance frequencies, this paper shows a novel technique involving Hydrogen in a magnetic field that led to the first direct data for strings, particularly a picture of a multi-dimensional string D-brane. This paper introduces string experimentation, the ability to study strings directly in the laboratory.
