London, June 23 (ANI): Researchers have simulated the sounds that are expected to be generated by sub-atomic particles such as the Higgs boson after they are produced at the Large Hadron Collider.

Scientists want to develop a means for physicists at Cern to "listen to the data" and pick out the Higgs particle if and when they identify it.

Particle physicist Dr Lily Asquith modelled data from the giant Atlas experiment at the LHC.

She collaborated with sound engineers to convert data expected from collisions at the LHC into sounds.

"If the energy is close to you, you will hear a low pitch and if it's further away you hear a higher pitch," The BBC quoted her, as saying.

Asquith added: "If it's lots of energy it will be louder and if it's just a bit of energy it will be quieter."

The 6billion pound LHC machine on the Swiss-French border is expected to provide answers to fundamental questions in physics.

Scientists believe that the emergence of the new sub-atomic particles could help unravel many mysteries of the universe.(ANI)
