Large Hadron Collider is entering world of higher energy level

Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in CERN's European Physics Laboratory will get increased levels of energy to do work. Its beam energy will be increased by 0.5 TeV this year and becomes 4 TeV (trillion electron-volt). After the completion of these experiments, LHC will work on 7 TeV after 20 months of gap.

Researchers and Experts have made this decision in order to get information for new particles. Research director of CERN, Sergio Bertolucci, said that we will reach a point where we will say that we have discovered the reality of Higgs boson i.e. God particle.

By the time the LHC goes into its first long stop at the end of this year, we will either know that a Higgs particle exists or have ruled out the existence of a Standard Model Higgs. Either would be a major advance in our exploration of nature, bringing us closer to understanding how the fundamental particles acquire their mass, and marking the beginning of a new chapter in particle physics.

From SayPeople,

Previous operations of the lab showed some evidences of Higgs boson in the range of 124-126 GeV and passed the 4-sigma level of confidence. In order to be officially discovered, Higgs boson must have to get the 5-sigma level of confidence and this year’s operation could help in finalizing the results.
