US lab also sees ‘hints’ of ‘God particle’
London: Just days after scientists working at Europe’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have reported a possible sign of the elusive Higgs boson, a US lab is also reporting similar glimpses.
Known as the ‘God particle’, the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle is a missing cornerstone in the accepted theory of particle physics.
Researchers have been analysing data from the Tevatron machine near Chicago.
The hints seen at the Tevatron are weaker than those reported at the LHC, but occur in the same ‘search region’, reports the BBC.
Physicists have cautioned that these possible hints could disappear after further analysis.
But researchers also said that when the US and European results are taken together, they start to paint an "intriguing" picture.
The Tevatron and LHC machines work on similar basic principles, accelerating beams of particles to high energies around a tunnel before smashing them together.
These collisions can generate new particles, which can then be picked up by detectors built at the points where particle beams cross over.
The results are being presented and discussed at the Europhysics conference in Grenoble, France.
