Latest W and Z bosons 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.
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.
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.
While the LHC is shut down to upgrade the accelerator – eventually allowing it to operate at even higher energies – scientists working on the project are continuing to sift through the massive amount of data accumulated through 2012.
UC Santa Barbara physicist Tarun Grover has provided definitive mathematical evidence for supersymmetry in a condensed matter system.
It’s been just over one year since the discovery of the Higgs boson was all but confirmed, but researchers now believe that there might be particles even smaller that have yet to be discovered.
HAMPTON, Va., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Is the quest for the tiniest particle the key to understanding the universe?
