A tiny optoelectronic module designed in part by SMU physicists plays a big role in the world’s largest physics experiment at CERN in Switzerland, where scientists are searching for the Higgs boson, the “God” particle. The module, a fiber-optic transmitter, sends the flood of raw data from the Large Hadron Collider’s ATLAS experiment to offsite computer farms, where thousands of physicists around the world can analyze it.
SMU physicists at CERN find hints of long sought after Higgs boson — dubbed the fundamental “God” particle
In a giant game of hide and seek, physicists say there are indications they finally may have found evidence of the long sought after fundamental particle called the Higgs boson.
