LHC experiments join forces to zoom in on the Higgs boson.
17 March 2015 - At a research conference in Italy today CERN experiments ATLAS and CMS presented for the first time a combination of their results on the mass of the Higgs boson. The combined mass of the Higgs boson is mH = 125.09 ± 0.24 (0.21 stat. ± 0.11 syst.), which corresponds to a measurement precision of better than 0.2%. It is the most precise measurement of the Higgs boson mass yet and among the most precise measurements performed at the LHC to date.
