The excitement over a possible new particle

The discovery of the Higgs Boson back in 2012 was another victory for the standard model. It is by far the best theory we have in describing how the fundamental particles are interacting with each other at the subatomic level… Continue Reading →

The Benefits of Particle Physics

The subject of particle physics remains relatively blurry among the general population. The standard model was established back in 1970’s and it has flourished ever since , ┬ámaking the model very successful and it is the backbone of quantum field… Continue Reading →

Fine-structure constant

In physics, the fine-structure constant, also known as Sommerfeld’s constant, is a fundamental physical constant characterizing the strength of the electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles. This constant is expressed by combining several other fundamental constants of nature:        … Continue Reading →
