Alexander Zabi, Jessica Leveque and Marumi Kado, CNRS physicists explain how they seek the missing link of particle physics, the Higgs boson, a particle predicted for over 40 years but never observed. This is due to the particle accelerator, the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) that are produced proton collisions at very high energies, which are recorded in experiments such as Atlas and CMS.
The observation of the decay products of the Higgs boson would be a major breakthrough in understanding the universe and matter.
