IN SEARCH OF GOD PARTICLE - HIGGS BOSON
In a ‘quantum’ leap in physics, CERN scientists on Wednesday, 4th July, 2012, claimed to have spotted a sub-atomic particle “consistent” with the Higgs boson or the “God particle”, believed to be a crucial building block that led to the formation of the universe.
The name Higgs Boson came from a British scientist Peter Higgs and Bose (Satyendra Nath Bose after whose name thesub-atomic particle boson is named). The work done by Bose and Albert Einstein, later added by Higgs, lead to this pioneering day.
“India is like a historic father of the project,” Paolo Giubellino, CERN spokesperson had said back in October last year when PTI visited the facility.
SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION BY KOLKATA INSTITUTE
The Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP) said in Kolkata on Wednesday that its scientists had made significant contributions to the development of the CMS experiments at CERN.
“This is an important moment for the development of science and I am very happy that our institute, this city and our country is part of the science revolution,” Mr. Sanyal said.
He said that the core CMS team of the SINP had five faculty members — group leader Prof. Sunanda Banerjee, Prof. Satyaki Bhattacharya, Prof. Suchandra Datta, Prof. Subir Sarkar and Prof. Manoj Saran.
Most of the team members, he said, had worked for more than a decade with the CMS experiment with notable contributions in the development of the experiment right from the early stage and were actively participating in the analysis of the incoming data.
