Sometimes the discovery of new physics requires crazy levels of energy. Large machines. Stylish equipment. Countless hours of screening through amounts of data. And sometimes the right combination of materials can open a door to invisible worlds in a space a little larger than a table top. Take this new kind of relationship to Higgs …
