Higgs and nothing?

  • What physics does on the smallest scales
  • Lisa Edelhäuser & Alexander Knochel
  • In dialogue, Lecture

The symmetries of the laws of nature are under scrutiny, the measurement of interactions is successful with unprecedented precision and new possibilities of producing elementary particles are being researched – a lot has happened in particle physics since the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012.

Nevertheless, no new elementary particles have been discovered since the historic success of the Large Hadron Collider experiments at CERN. However, there are several indications – the phenomenon of dark matter is one of them – that other fundamental particles and interactions exist in nature. Whether and how such “new physics” can be detected with current experiments is currently the subject of controversial discussions and speculations.

A generally understandable insight into current theories, exciting science and ongoing discussions.
