Axial Higgs Mode

Physicists Discover Elusive New Particle Through Benchtop Experiment

An interdisciplinary team led by Boston College physicists has discovered a new particle – or previously undetectable quantum excitation – known as the Higgs axial mode, a magnetic relative of the mass-defining Higgs Boson particle, reports the team in the journal Nature. Credit: Nature Materials that contain the axial Higgs mode could serve as quantum …

A warp-entrainment experiment to make atoms invisible could finally test Stephen Hawking’s most famous prediction

A new warp-speed experiment could finally offer an indirect test of famed physicist Stephen Hawking’s most famous black hole prediction. The new proposal suggests that by pushing a atom becoming invisible, scientists could glimpse the ethereal quantum glow that shrouds objects moving at near the speed of light. The glow effect, called the Unruh (or …
