An ambitious upgrade of the US flagship X-ray free-electron laser rests on sustained cooperation with high-energy physics labs in the US, Europe and Japan.
The CERN Courier editors take a tour through the magazine's Higgs archives.
Exploring the Higgs boson’s couplings to other particles and the shape of its potential could be the key to physics beyond the Standard Model.
Frank Wilczek explains why the Higgs sector could act as a portal through which to access a wide class of “phantom” particles that might otherwise elude detection.
Confirming the electroweak Standard Model drove three major projects at CERN spanning three decades, culminating in the discovery of the Higgs boson on 4 July 2012. Matthew Chalmers captures a glimpse...
Gerard ’t Hooft reflects on how renormalisation elevated the Brout–Englert–Higgs mechanism to a consistent theory capable of making testable predictions.
Gilad Perez links the Higgs boson to the puzzling pattern of the fermion masses.
The masses of the Higgs boson and the top quark hint that there must be physics beyond the SM that prevents the universe from decaying into a new vacuum state, argues John Ellis.
Ten years of experimental scrutiny by ATLAS and CMS strongly suggest the Higgs boson originates from the minimal Higgs sector required by the Standard Model.
Either new particles are keeping the Higgs boson light, or the universe is oddly fine-tuned for our existence. Nathaniel Craig goes down the rabbit hole of the electroweak hierarchy problem.
