Are you talking about the Higgs Boson? That has to do with gravity and/or mass (it's complicated) and gravity is far too weak a force to have anything to do with individual atoms. The only thing the Higgs Boson would have to do with atoms is it's role in mass. The existence or lack thereof of the Higgs Boson is meaningless for our theories of atoms and nuclear physics.
They already came up with an idea that explains how atoms stick together, with the help of the bozons particle, and they have already accepted it as a fact.......but no one has ever seen it.
