Premature, I am well aware. However, I was given an assignment to write an experimental procedure for measuring the spin of the Higgs Boson. I've already finished the paper so this isn't homework, but I am curious as to the motivations of my Professor. It is my understanding that the Higgs Boson must have a spin of 0 so as to conform to the theory that the Higgs field is scalar, which is something on which the entire higgs-field theory rests. Finding only (a) particle(s) in the range of the Higgs' mass that did not have a spin 0 would imply that it is, in fact, not the predicted Higgs Boson, debunking the theory. Would it be more appropriate just to design an experiment to measure the spin of particles within the bounds of the Higgs' mass? Or is the goal likely to be to corroborate the idea that we will have observed the Higgs? The theory on which my experimental procedure relies (for any who are interested/have constructive(corrective) criticism) The Higgs is large (a minimum mass of 114 GeV, a predicted mass of 129 GeV) which indicates that it should have a very short life before it decays. So, while the quick decay time may prevent the possibility of measuring the spin of the Higgs directly (Stern-Gerlach, 0 spin would imply that the beam should go straight through the B-field), there is the possibility of using a hermetic detector to identify the decay products and sum their angular momentums. If that sum is zero, then we have possibly observed the predicted Higgs particle. Possible difficulties I am aware of: LHC can only produce a Higgs Boson once every couple of hours. I understated (Just didn't discuss here) the difficulties of identifying the decay products. I suppose this brings me to a last question. Is anyone aware of any promising duration predictions for the Higgs Boson?
