Accelerons are hypothetical subatomic particles postulated to relate the mass of the neutrino to the dark energy conjectured to be responsible for the accelerating expansion of the universe.[1][2][3]

Accelerons are supposedly postulated at the University of Washington to relate the newfound mass of the neutrino to the dark energy conjectured to be accelerating the expansion of the universe.
