Axial Higgs Mode: Elusive Particle Discovered in a Material Through Tabletop Experiment

Axial Higgs mode.

An interdisciplinary team led by Boston College physicists has discovered a new particle – or a previously undetectable quantum excitation – known as the axial Higgs mode, a magnetic relative of the mass-defining Higgs Boson particle, the team reports in the journal 'Nature.' (Image: via Nature)
