Bosons and Antiparticles
Thank You for your help
There is no negative energy state for the bosons. The bosons do not have anti-particles!
In fact an interesting phenomenon occurs whenever a boson has a negative squared-mass: there is a phase transition in which the properties of the vacuum change and in the end the particle acquires a positive mass (this is the Higgs mechanism in the Standard Model of particle physics).
