Two years ago the LHC team at Cern, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, astounded the world with the discovery of the Higgs boson, an elementary particle that gives other particles mass.
A fresh analysis of data from the particle collider that delivered the Higgs boson has dashed physicists' hope that another new particle had emerged from the subatomic shrapnel.
The Higgs Boson was named after Professor Peter Higgs, emeritus professor at Edinburgh University.
Professor Vincenzo Chiochia from the University of Zurich's Physics Institute said that they now know that the Higgs particle can decay into both bosons and fermions, which means they can exclude certain theories predicting that the Higgs particle does not couple to fermions.
His theory - developed with Francois Englert, of Belgium, who was jointly awarded the prize - was con-firmed last year by the discovery of the so-called Higgs boson at a laboratory in Geneva.
It would take nearly half a century, thousands of scientists and technicians and billions of dollars to find the capstone experimental proof, but when two gigantic experimental collaborations at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland announced the discovery of the Higgs boson to the world on July 4, 2012, the theory was just about confirmed.
At a conference in the town of La Thuile, located near the Italian border with France, scientists from the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) said that the latest data culled from the Large Hadron Collider strongly indicate that researchers indeed discovered the Higgs boson last July.
With the current experimental precision, the new particle production and decay patterns are compatible with those of the SM Higgs boson.
