Higgs Boson, Top Quarks Linked for First Time in New Collider Research

An observation made by an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider involving Florida Institute of Technology physicists has for the first time connected the two heaviest elementary particles of the Standard Model.  Using the Compact Muon Solenoid detector, which acts as a giant, high-speed camera taking 3-D ‘photographs’ of particle collisions, scientists announced findings that reveal how strongly the Higgs boson interacts with the heaviest known elementary particle, the top quark. ..

Paradoxical Crystal Baffles Physicists

IN A DECEPTIVELY drab black crystal, physicists have stumbled upon a baffling behavior, one that appears to blur the line between the properties of metals, in which electrons flow freely, and those of insulators, in which electrons are effectively stuck in place. The crystal exhibits hallmarks of both simultaneously. ..
