Recently the CMS and ATLAS collaborations at the LHC observe independently a new particle with mass ~ 125–126 GeV, consistent with the standard model (SM) Higgs boson. The Higgs boson is considered as the final particle of the SM. It is an important particle because it is responsible for the Higgs mechanism by which all particles acquire mass. But its mass is not specified in the SM. It has some unique properties which give a special status to it in the table of elementary particles of the SM. Recently, it is claimed that graphene, the 2010 Nobel Prize winning two-dimensional nonmaterial, would help physicists to probe the Higgs boson’s secrets. It is also claimed that the Higgs boson might interact with dark matter and there exists relation between the Higgs boson and dark matter. Again the mass of the Higgs boson can be predicted in the models. In this review article, we discuss these issues briefly.
