15 Fermions The fermions ( matter particles ) are divided into: leptons quarks T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 8/ 35
16 Fermions The fermions ( matter particles ) are divided into: leptons quarks Some basic facts about leptons There are six types of leptons: e, ν e; µ, ν µ; τ, ν τ. For the masses of e, µ, and τ, it holds that m e m µ m τ. There is solid evidence that all six leptons exist and conclusive evidence that neutrinos have small but nonzero mass. All leptons interact with the weak interaction and the charged leptons (i.e. e, µ, and τ ) also interact with the electromagnetic interaction. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 8/ 35

There is solid evidence that all six quarks exist. Quarks interact with the strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 8/ 35

19 Bosons The bosons are divided into: gauge bosons ( exchange particles ) scalar boson (the Higgs boson) We will come back to this particle later! Definition an exchange particle In particle physics, an interaction between two particles is interpreted as the exchange of another particle the exchange particle between them. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 9/ 35
20 Bosons II Example of an exchange particle (the photon): In case of the electromagnetic interaction, the exhange particle is a photon. One electron emits a photon and then another electron (or actually, a positron) absorbs it. The photon carries momentum, so the two electrons change their momenta, and thus experience forces. T.

22 Bosons III The exhange particles of the SM are: Electromagnetic interaction: photon (γ) Weak interaction: W and Z bosons (W ±, Z 0 ) Strong interaction: eight gluons (g) T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 11/ 35
23 Bosons III The exhange particles of the SM are: Electromagnetic interaction: photon (γ) Weak interaction: W and Z bosons (W ±, Z 0 ) Strong interaction: eight gluons (g) Some basic facts about the photon The photon has zero rest mass and always propagates at the speed of light in vacuum. The photon is a stable particle and its own antiparticle and has no electric charge and spin 1. The photon has two independent polarization states two transversal polarizations. T.

The photon is a stable particle and its own antiparticle and has no electric charge and spin 1. The photon has two independent polarization states two transversal polarizations. Some basic facts about the W and Z bosons The W and Z masses are m W = ( ± 0.015) GeV/c 2 and m Z = ( ± ) GeV/c 2, respectively. We will come back to why these particles have mass later! The W bosons have either positive or negative electric charge and are each other s antiparticles. The Z boson has no electric charge and is its own antiparticle. All three particles have spin 1 and three independent polarization states. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 11/ 35
25 Bosons IV Some basic facts about the eight gluons All eight gluons have zero rest mass. Note that this is a theoretical values, since no free gluons have been observed! Experimental limit: m g < 1.3 MeV/c 2. The gluons have no electric charge but eight different color charges. Like the photon, all eight gluons have spin 1 and two independent polarization states. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 12/ 35
26 Bosons IV Some basic facts about the eight gluons All eight gluons have zero rest mass. Note that this is a theoretical values, since no free gluons have been observed! Experimental limit: m g < 1.3 MeV/c 2. The gluons have no electric charge but eight different color charges. Like the photon, all eight gluons have spin 1 and two independent polarization states. Strong interaction There are eight independent gluons. Intuitively: Quarks carry three types of color and antiquarks carry three types of anticolor. Gluons carry both color and anticolor. This gives nine possible combinations for gluons, which are: redantired, redantigreen, redantiblue greenantired, greenantigreen, greenantiblue blueantired, blueantigreen, blueantiblue These are not the actual color states of observed gluons, but rather effective states. To correctly describe gluons, it is necessary to consider the mathematics of color in more detail eight gluons. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 12/ 35

43 Hadrons What are they? Definition of a hadron A hadron is a composite particle built up by quarks. It is not an elementary particle. Definitions of a baryon and a meson Quarks can combine in just two ways to form hadrons: When three quarks combine, they form a baryon. When one quark and one antiquark combine, they form a meson. T.

44 Hadrons What are they? Definition of a hadron A hadron is a composite particle built up by quarks. It is not an elementary particle. Definitions of a baryon and a meson Quarks can combine in just two ways to form hadrons: When three quarks combine, they form a baryon. When one quark and one antiquark combine, they form a meson. Example: The proton is a baryon made out of two u and one d, whereas the neutron is another baryon made out of two d and one u. Thus, the electric charges of the proton (uud) and the neutron (ddu) are Q p = 2 e + 2 e +( 1 e) = e and Q n = ( 1 e) + ( 1 e) + 2 e = 0, respectively. Of course, these two values are the measured values. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 17/ 35
45 Hadrons What are they? II Since baryons are made from three quarks, all baryons have baryon number 1, whereas all antibaryons have baryon number 1. All mesons have baryon number 0. Other particles not made from quarks also have baryon number 0. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 18/ 35
46 Hadrons What are they? II Since baryons are made from three quarks, all baryons have baryon number 1, whereas all antibaryons have baryon number 1. All mesons have baryon number 0. Other particles not made from quarks also have baryon number 0. Pentaquarks Recently, in 2015 at the LHCb experiment, a new type of hadrons has been confirmed. This type is called pentaquarks and they consist of five quarks, or actually, four quarks and one antiquark. However, the binding mechanism for pentaquarks is not yet clear. Either five quarks combine or they are more loosely bound and consist of a baryon and a meson interacting relatively weakly with each other, i.e. a mesonbaryon molecule. T.

Glueballs A glueball is a hypothetical composite particle, which consists solely of gluons. The prediction that glueballs exist is one of the most important predictions of the SM that has not yet been confirmed experimentally. However, there are several experimental candidates for glueballs. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 18/ 35

58 Confinement and asymptotic freedom The theory for the strong interaction is called quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Confinement In QCD, at low energies (or at long distances), confinement is the phenomenon that colored (or color charged) particles cannot be isolated. Therefore, colored particles cannot be directly observed. Quarks and gluons must combine to form hadrons. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 23/ 35

However, at extremely high energies (or at extremely short distances), the situation is totally different. Asymptotic freedom In QCD, asymptotic freedom is a property that causes the strong interaction between particles to become asymptotically weaker as the energy scale increases and the corresponding length scale decreases.

62 Confinement and asymptotic freedom II The asymptotic freedom of QCD was discovered in 1973 by D. Gross, D. Politzer, and F. Wilczek. Nobel Prize in Physics 2004 Press release (see nobelprize.org) David Gross, David Politzer and Frank Wilczek have made an important theoretical discovery concerning the strong force, or the colour force as it is also called. [...] What this year s Laureates discovered was something that, at first sight, seemed completely contradictory. The interpretation of their mathematical result was that the closer the quarks are to each other, the weaker is the colour charge. When the quarks are really close to each other, the force is so weak that they behave almost as free particles. This phenomenon is called asymptotic freedom. The converse is true when the quarks move apart: the force becomes stronger when the distance increases. This property may be compared to a rubber band. The more the band is stretched, the stronger the force. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 24/ 35

65 Confinement and asymptotic freedom IV In fact, no physical quantities are constant with respect to energy. They all run and so do the couplings constants. Running coupling constants in the SM (left) and with the introduction of supersymmetry (right): In the SM, the coupling constants for the three fundamental interactions do not meet at one point, but with supersymmetry, they do meet at one point. This is known as unification. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 26/ 35

In other words, the Higgs bosons in the condensate attract each other. The resulting potential energy V(φ) = µ 2 φ 2 +λ φ 4 has its minimum at a µ nonzero value of the field (φ min = 2 ): 2λ T.

80 The Higgs particle IV Generation of mass All elementary particles are massless and therefore propagate with the speed of light. However, most of them bounce off the Higgs bosons in vacuum, and hence effectively propagate with finite velocities. Their kinetic energies are transformed into the rest energies, i.e. the masses of the elementary particles. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 33/ 35

Photons and gluons do not interact at all with the Higgs field they remain massless. T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 33/ 35
83 Open questions in particle physics Some open fundamental questions in particle physics are: Is there unification of the three fundamental interactions in particle physics? Is there unification of all four fundamental interactions in Nature? Is there only one type of Higgs particle? Are neutrinos their own antiparticles? Is there supersymmetry in Nature? Why are there three generations of leptons and quarks? Is the proton fundamentally stable? What combinations of quarks are possible? Do glueballs exist? What is the dark matter? Why is it far more matter than antimatter in the observable Universe? T. Ohlsson (KTH) Particle Physics 34/ 35
