In this illustration, two protons collide at high energy, producing a Higgs boson that instantly decays, producing two tau particles. The rest of the...
The Higgs boson is the fundamental particle associated with the Higgs field, a field that gives mass to other fundamental particles such as electrons and quarks. SLAC builds and operates detector components for ATLAS, one of two experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider that were involved in the discovery of the Higgs particle.
