Peter Higgs’ Nobel-Winning Research Started at UNC
Wednesday, October 09, 2013
A little more than a year ago, a physicist named Peter Higgs made startling news with what’s now known as the Higgs boson, the idea that a background field permeating all matter was responsible for mass. It was at Carolina in 1965 that Higgs put that idea in a paper. Now, Higgs has won the Nobel Prize in Physics. (UNC General Alumni Association)
