Latest Standard Model Stories
Two of the greatest scientific research projects of our time – the discovery of the Higgs boson and the search for dark matter – may be related, as researchers from the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden explained in a new Journal of High Energy Physics paper.
Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland have found through their experiments that theories surrounding particle physics have held up well so far – and that’s the problem.
Homer predicted the mass of the Higgs boson 14 years before it was discovered.
For the first time ever, a scientist has detected a simulated version of the so-called "God particle" using superconductors, providing evidence that the Higgs boson can be detected without the use of a superconductor, according to a new study published by the journal Nature Physics.
A new study published in Physical Review Letters might explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang, which is something that scientists have been striving to understand.
More than two years after physicists from the European Organization for Nuclear Research announced the discovery of a new subatomic particle, scientists continue to debate whether or not the new elementary particle they detected was actually the elusive Higgs boson.
Physicists in the College of Arts and Sciences have made important discoveries regarding Bs meson particles—something that may explain why the universe contains more matter than antimatter.
The Higgs boson has been hailed as one of the greatest physics discovery of all time, but preeminent scientist Stephen Hawking has a different take on the so-called God particle – he believes that it could destroy the universe.
Astrophysicists believe that about 80 percent of the substance of our universe is made up of mysterious “dark matter” that can’t be perceived by human senses or scientific instruments.
NSF selects College’s Rostislav Konoplich, professor of physics, and his students to conduct extensive research on Higgs boson, the subatomic particle that accounts for the creation of mass.
