The Higgs is Different

| 5 July 2012 The Higgs is Different, says Jonathan Bagger, a theoretical physicist and chair of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee ILCSC. It has no spin, it fills the vacuum, but most importantly, it opens the door to a new range of questions. Questions which a linear collider with its clean and controlled collisions could help answer.

From CERN Bulletin: Much ado about Nothing – exploring the vacuum with the LHC

3 May 2012 Empty space is anything but. Remove everything you can from an area of space and it will still bustle with activity. A veritable abundance of particles and all-pervasive fields fill space with energy. Empty space even weighs something. Indeed, studying ‘nothing’ can tell us almost everything about the universe we live in. Learn more about the relationship between vacuum and “virtual” particles, the Higgs boson, supersymmetry and dark energy Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

Celebrating first 7-TeV collisions at the LHC

| 8 April 2010 This past week marked the beginning of a new era for particle physics with the much publicised achievement of establishing the first 7-TeV collisions at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). [...] We should soon begin to have a glimpse of Terascale physics from searches for the origin of mass to looking for evidence of a new symmetry in nature that could even explain the dark matter. Even more intriguing is the real possibility for totally unexpected surprises that are awaiting us. We are looking to LHC science to establish what kind of lepton collider will be needed to best exploit the energy frontier in the longer term. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Cosmic Dark Matter and the ILC

| 8 November 2007 A couple of weeks ago, Michael Peskin (SLAC) opened the ALCPG07 meeting at Fermilab with a visionary talk titled, "The Physics Landscape: Now and Tomorrow." Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
