From the Higgs Boson Particle to Leadbelly
: "Physicists from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are using the same methods to search for the elusive Higgs Boson particle and to digitally restore audio recordings from the past." By imaging the the old disk recordings, smoothing out the physical scratches and defects, and then simulating a stylus on the smoothed virtual disk, the sound improvement is dramatic. "Berkeley Lab signed an agreement with the Library of Congress to digitize the many thousands of early blues or jazz recordings it has in its archives." Follow link to excellent example of before and after. 4:22:59 PM
