A pivotal moment for particle physics

North­eastern physics pro­fessor Emanuela Bar­beris exam­ines the meaning of the dis­covery of the Higgs boson, the so-​​called “God particle.”


For physics postdoc, new evidence of things not seen

Physics post-​​doctoral researcher Joe Haley deliv­ered new results from Fer­milab that bring us closer to under­standing of the Higgs boson par­ticle and, more broadly, the way our uni­verse works.

3Qs: Searching for the “Holy Grail” of physics

Researchers at CERN, the Euro­pean Center for Nuclear Research, reported this week they are get­ting closer to dis­cov­ering the Higgs boson, a sub­atomic par­ticle that sci­en­tists believe will explain why every­thing in the uni­verse has mass. The Higgs boson is con­sid­ered to be the “Holy Grail” of par­ticle physics, and finding it would be a great sci­en­tific advance­ment. We asked Emanuela Bar­beris, asso­ciate pro­fessor of physics, to explain the Higgs boson and what its dis­covery would mean to the world’s sci­en­tific community.
