Physicists Discover Never- on a Tabletop

Before Seen Particle Sitting


have discovered a new particle that is a magnetic relative of the Higgs boson

The discovery of the 

Higgs boson required the tremendous particle-accelerating power of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC),

This never-before-seen

 particle  —  dubbed the axial Higgs boson — was found using an experiment that would fit on a small kitchen countertop. 

Magnetic cousin of the

Higgs boson, the particle responsible for granting other particles their mass could be a candidate for dark matter

The axial Higgs boson 

differs from the Higgs boson, which was first detected by the ATLAS and CMS detectors at the LHC a decade ago in 2012

The axial Higgs boson 

arose when room-temperature quantum materials mimicked a specific set of oscillations, called the axial Higgs mode
