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 ...

Researchers first to observe Higgs boson analogue in superconductors
The Nobel Prize-winning discovery of the Higgs boson - the "God particle" believed responsible for all the mass in the universe - took place in 2012 at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, an underground facility ...
Is the Higgs boson a piece of the matter-antimatter puzzle?
(Phys.org) —Several experiments, including the BaBar experiment at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have helped explain some – but not all – of the imbalance between ...
A quick look at electron-boson coupling: Researchers use ultrafast spectroscopy on many body effects
Imagine being able to tune the properties of a solid material just by flashing pulses of light on it, for example turning an insulator into a superconductor. That is just one potential payoff down-the-road ...
Should the Higgs boson have caused our Universe to collapse?
(Phys.org) —British cosmologists are puzzled: they predict that the Universe should not have lasted for more than a second. This startling conclusion is the result of combining the latest observations of ...
Evidence found for the Higgs boson direct decay into fermions
For the first time, researchers at CERN have found evidence for the direct decay of the Higgs boson into fermions—another strong indication that the particle discovered in 2012 behaves in the way the standard ...
