Higgs Boson

  • #1
Hello. Since the Higgs Boson is responsible for giving sub-atomic particles mass..or any particles there
mass..is there a present understanding of the mechanism by which the field actually does this?

And if there is...is there any artificial way of controlling it? My thinking is that if you could control
the Higgs field you could control whether anything actually has mass in the first place..or how
much mass that something will actually have.

Would it require huge energies or something? Even if it did...what about small scale control?

Thx
SC

Yes. No. Yes. Still requires huge energies, far beyond present (or foreseeable) technology.
