Experiment Provides Further Insights into Higgs Boson Physics

A new experiment by physicists at the University of Bonn, Germany, has achieved a Higgs-like state in a system composed of ultracold atoms. Excitation spectra of the Higgs-like state: (a) excitation spectra of the Higgs-like state for different interaction strengths, 1/(kFa); the different levels of background condensate fraction are due …

Researchers Explore Limits of the Periodic Table of Elements

At 150 years old, the periodic table of chemical elements is still growing. In 2016, four new elements with atomic numbers 113, 115, 117 and 118 were added to it: nihonium, moscovium, tennessine, and oganesson. It took a decade and worldwide effort to confirm these elements, and now scientists wonder: …
