New evidence bolsters Higgs boson discovery: Confirmation of particle responsible for mass

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 - 10:02 in Physics & Chemistry

If evidence of the Higgs boson revealed two years ago was the smoking gun, particle physicists have now found a few of the bullets. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has just published research that details evidence of the direct decay of the Higgs boson to fermions, among the particles anticipated by the Standard Model of physics. The finding fits what researchers expected to see amid the massive amount of data provided by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
