The Higgs Boson, gives rise to the explanation of mass which was first proposed by Peter W. Higgs and Francois Englert (Nobel Prize winners for the Higgs Boson theory). The theory stated that there is a Higgs field that permeates all of space, similar to the other fields such as electric and magnetic.
A nice and simple analogy for the Higgs field was the busy cocktail party. An average person could wander through the crowd with ease. But a more popular figure would be mobbed as soon as he or she entered the room, making passage more difficult. In this example, the party-goers represent the Higgs field, and the people walking through the crowd represent particles to which the field gives mass. A person who is significantly impeded by interested guests is like a particle given a large mass by the Higgs field.
The existence of the Higgs Boson was discovered at CERN’s large Hadron collider. This collider focuses on the collisions of two protons and the observations of the energies given out. For this collision to occur the protons must be precisely shot at one another.This discovery of the Higgs Boson, allows us to learn more about the particle’s nature and how they weigh. . The discovery of the Higgs Boson also allowed scientist to learn this particle’s nature and are now trying to look back for the origins of the universe. Hence it was awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize
Note, the mass of particles like protons and neutrons come from their interaction with the Higgs field.
Within the past 2 years, much of the photovoltaic technology as begun to advance in Australia, specifically within University of New South Wales where they have up with improvements in photovoltaic panel design that had not been expected for another decade. By using hydrogen atoms to counter defect in silicon cells used in solar panels. As a consequence, poor quality silicon can be made to perform like high quality wafers. Professor Stuart Wenham has been awarded the prestigious Institution of...
