UK researchers contribute to latest Higgs boson breakthrough

UK scientists are celebrating the latest observation from the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN, revealing how strongly the Higgs boson interacts with the heaviest known elementary particle, the top quark, confirming our understanding of the Higgs and setting constraints on new physics.

The observation of this extremely rare process was announced today (Monday 4 June 2018) at the Large Hadron Collider Physics 2018 conference in Bologna, Italy.

These observations will allow physicists to test critical parameters of the Higgs mechanism in the Standard Model of particle physics.
