World's best measurement of W boson mass tests Standard Model, Higgs boson limits
(PhysOrg.com) -- Just as firemen use different methods to narrow the location of a person trapped in a building, scientists employ two techniques to find the hiding place of the theorized Higgs particle: direct ...
Physicists Investigate Possibility of an 'Unhiggs'

Large Hadron Collider team announces beginning of restart
Titan Project explores the smallest building blocks of matter
(Phys.org) —Our world is made up of particles so tiny they may actually be points in space. These are quarks, relative newcomers to the physics conversation that were not even postulated until the mid-1960s. ...
Measuring electrons: Precise computations of their shape support Standard Model of physics
Though it was hailed as a triumph for the "Standard Model" of physics, the reigning explanation of fundamental forces and particles, physicists were quick to emphasize that last year's discovery of the Higgs bo ...
New 31-km-long International Linear Collider ready for construction
Today the Linear Collider Collaboration published its Technical Design Report [PDF] for the International Linear Collider (ILC) - a proposed 31-kilometer electron-positron collider that will both complement and advance beyond the physics of the Large Had ...
Theorists weigh in on where to hunt dark matter
(Phys.org) —Now that it looks like the hunt for the Higgs boson is over, particles of dark matter are at the top of the physics "Most Wanted" list. Dozens of experiments have been searching for them, but ...
Physicists develop revolutionary low-power polariton laser
(Phys.org) —Lasers are an unseen backbone of modern society. They're integral to technologies ranging from high-speed Internet services to Blu-ray players.
Upgrade of LHC underway paving way for new discoveries
Now confident: CERN physicists say new particle is Higgs boson (Update 3)
Physicists said Thursday they are now confident they have discovered a crucial subatomic particle known as a Higgs boson—a major discovery that will go a long ways toward helping them explain why the universe ...
