The world’s best appreciable revolutionary discovery of the Higgs particle, popularly known as ‘The God Particle’ by two teams of physicists at the CERN laboratory near encouraged Indian scientists too as are thinking for unveiling a sequel of “Higgs boson”.
According to source, Physicists of India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) near Madurai in Tamil Nadu plan to release Higgs boson sequel.
“The discovery has given us a lot of confidence. It shows that we are going in the right direction,” Naba K Mondal, senior professor, INO said.
A proposed Particle Physics research project, INO will be commission by 2017 and after that enable its scientists to answer each and every questions related with Higgs Standard Model, report said.
On basis of the Standard Model theory “god particles” discovery is possible, that explain the formation of universe. It relates with study of over all structure of the fundamental particles that make up protons, neutrons and electrons.
According to the Standard Model, one variety of leptons, named neutrinos, are supposed to be massless, it deals with the particles themselves such as quarks and leptons as well as the forces that act on them. But assumption had that all are without mass, which is not true in actual sense.
Peter Higgs, the Edinburgh University physicist who proposed the idea of the particle in 1964, assumed that all fundamental particles closely resembles the Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are massless until they interact with something called the Higgs Field.
So the discovery shows an invisible energy Higgs field that fills the vacuum of space, partially proof scientists’ doubts regarding universe to be true.
Meanwhile, to find answers of unexplained questions such as how particles get these mass, Indian scientists will go ahead with their next major lab, INO.
“It will take physics beyond the Standard Model. Other fundamental particles such as quarks have been studied to a far greater degree than neutrinos, which are small and hardly interact with any other particle,” said Mondal stated in a statement.
There is a wave of excitement in the theoretical physicists who are excited for work on assumptions of the Higgs Boson’s discovery.
