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 …

Physicists discover never-before-seen particle sitting on table

Researchers have discovered a new particle that is a magnetic relative of the Higgs boson. While the discovery of the Higgs boson required the enormous particle-accelerating power of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), this never-before-seen particle – dubbed the axial Higgs boson – was discovered using an experiment that could stand on a small kitchen …
