The axion was named after this detergent by Frank Wilczek.

Energy as a function of the Higgs field in the Standard Model. The central peak corresponds to having the Higgs field turned off, so empty space corresponds to some point in the circular valley with a non-zero Higgs field. It takes energy to turn off the Higgs field.
