Seeing the First Evidence of the Higgs Boson Particle

FORA.tv (Nov. 29, 2012) — CUNY's Institute for Theoretical Sciences discusses the discovery of the Higgs boson particle. In July, researchers at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland, announced that they found convincing evidence of a new particle called the Higgs boson, using the Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful particle accelerator. Sometimes called the "God particle," the Higgs boson is a sub-atomic particle that is a building block of the universe. Kyle Cranmer, Assistant Professor of Physics at New York University, and Neal Weiner, Associate Professor of Physics at New York University, discuss how scientists made the discovery and why it is significant. The NYU Experimental High Energy Physics group has been a key part of a world-wide collaboration in the search for the Higgs boson.

CERN Scientists Find Breakthrough Particle

AFP (July 4, 2012) — Physicists on Wednesday said they had found a new sub-atomic particle consistent with the Higgs boson, which is believed to confer mass. The particle is "consistent with (the) long-sought Higgs boson," CERN said in a statement, adding that further data was needed to identify the find.

Gerd Binnig Chemistry Under the Microscope

Deutsche Welle (July 7, 2013) — He opened up a new world, paving the way for nanotechnology. Gerd Binnig shared the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physics for the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope. For the first time, the invention made it possible to see individual atoms and manipulate them. Chemistry had become engineering. Ever since, information scientists, chemists and materials scientists have been using Binnigs inventions to create materials with made-to-measure properties, in particular for microelectronics. Binnig himself started up a company that develops software to automatically analyze microscope images - for example, to recognize tumor cells. Tomorrow Today presents a portrait of the Nobel laureate.
