|Outline of Final Research Achievements
This research aims to reveal the mechanism of particle mass generation using the 3rd generation quarks as the probe. At the same time we searched for new physics beyond the Standard Model by conducting precise measurements of Higgs properties. We observed the direct couplings of Higgs to bottom quark and top quark, indicating that the mass of the 3rd generation quarks is generated by the Higgs mechanism as the massive gauge bosons, W and Z. In addition, the measurement of Higgs self-coupling is necessary to fully understand the Higgs mechanism and the shape of Higgs potential. In order to prepare for such self-coupling measurement, we developed silicon pixel detector for the future hadron collider experiment. The development went on smoothly as planned. The basic technical development is almost finished, and the phase moved into the mass production from the development.
