The ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC, which include a number of KU Physics and Astronomy faculty and students in High Energy and Nuclear Physics, issued a press release updating the status of the experimental quest to identify the elusive Higgs particle, a fundamental prediction of the standard model of elementary particle physics. Thanks to the exceptional technology being employed to identify the Higgs, the allowed mass range for the particle has been narrowed to between 115 and 130 Gev, with evidence for an excess signal near 125 Gev.
