Stateside Higgs hunt
9 March 2012
Physicists searching for evidence of the Higgs Boson at the USA’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, including a team from Imperial, have announced new results that closely match those revealed at CERN last December.
The team led by Professor Gavin Davies and Dr Jonathan Hays (Physics) contributed to the analysis high energy particle collisions at Fermilab’s Tevatron particle accelerator. Accelerators allow scientists to recreate the energy conditions found in the universe shortly after the Big Bang.
