As an international scientist group announced recently, a new particle had been spotted during a Beijing Spectrometer (BES) experiment on Beijing Electron Positron Collider (BEPC).
The group, composed of scientists from China, the United States and Japan, etc., initially named the particle X1835.
Other experts with the group announced the discovery at the same time at the University of Hawaii in the United States.
The new particle probably is the one that world researchers in high energy physics have been seeking for decades, according to Jin Shan, an research fellow with the institute.
Breakthroughs are expected to be made through in-depth studies on the structure of X1835 so as to promote the development of basic physical theories.
Over the recent years, a series of new discoveries have been made in Beijing Spectrometer (BES) experiment, maintaining China's leading position in the research on experimental high energy physics.
