Large Hadron Collider experiments at CERN Spot Higgs Boson and Top Quark together

The CMS and ATLAS experiments at CERN-LHC allowed scientists to measure the direct interaction between the Higgs boson and top quark, two of the heaviest elementary particles. The relationship can lead to physics beyond the standard model. ( CERN ) Two experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider revealed a discovery that combines the two heaviest elementary particles of the …

The Higgs boson is paired with the top quark cousin, confirming a new physics breakthrough

Credit: CERN As scientists operating the world's most powerful particle accelerator confirmed the existence of the Higgs boson, the discovery was heralded as a milestone in particle physics. This boson is a pretty big deal – it's the particle associated with a quantum field that is supposed to give particles to their masses. Without this field there would be no …

The Higgs boson has a new friend

CERN shared this visualization of one of the events in the new Higgs record. Credit: ATLAS Collaboration / CERN The Higgs boson reappeared at the world's largest atom smasher, this time in addition to a top quark and an anti-top quark, the heaviest known fundamental particles. And this new discovery could help scientists better understand why fundamental particles have the …

Who gets their mass from the Higgs?

The CMS detector at CERN has recently observed a rare type of Higgs boson decay. Credit: CERN The Higgs Field is like an endless ocean through which all matter floats. Some particles are like sponges and booze as they bounce on, while others are as lively as little minnows and arrow through them. The Higgs theory is a nice easy …

The Perfect Pair: Higgs and Top Quark discovered together

Today, two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN have announced a discovery that finally connects the two heaviest known particles: the top quark and the Higgs boson. The CMS and ATLAS experiments have observed the simultaneous production of both particles during a rare subatomic process. This is the first time scientists have measured the direct interaction of the …

Higgs boson factory a must for big physics

The detection of the Higgs boson ended decades of attempting to experimentally detect the particle, with the last missing part added to the standard model. PHOTO CREDIT: CERN A top physicist says that constructing a "factory" to produce Higgs boson particles is a priority for the scientific community. In an exclusive interview, Nigel Lockyer, head of the leading particle physics …
