Life in the Higgs condensate, where electrons have mass

... In 1963, Philip Anderson pointed out another important aspect: A would-be zero-mass Nambu-Goldstone boson in a superconductor is effectively eaten by the photon to become a finite-mass longitudinal mode, which appears as a plasmon in a nonrelativistic treatment. In 1964, realistic models with Lorent ...
