ATLAS Around the World: the faces behind the physics

“Multiculturalism” isn’t just a buzzword for ATLAS, it’s a way of life. With members of over 90 different nationalities – spanning every populated continent – ATLAS is a cultural experiment as much as it is a scientific one.

The ATLAS Around the World series invites you to meet people from every nationality represented in the collaboration, to gain an insight into the individual journeys that brought them to particle physics. All are from very different backgrounds, but share the common goal of understanding our universe.

[Physics Briefing] Could a new type of quark fix the “unnaturalness” of the Standard Model?

While the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012 confirmed many Standard Model predictions, it has raised as many questions as it has answered. For example, interactions at the quantum level between the Higgs boson and the top quark ought to lead to a huge Higgs boson mass, possibly as large as the Planck mass (>1018 GeV)...

[ATLAS Blog] Boosting high-energy physics education around the world with ATLAS Open Data

Since the beginning of ATLAS, collaboration members have devoted hours, days, weeks and months teaching High Energy Physics (HEP) to anyone willing to listen. But sometimes those willing to listen do not have the means, especially when oceans and continents separate them from our experiment in Geneva. How can we overcome these geographical distances to allow anyone interested in HEP to learn?

Find out how the ATLAS Open Data project is addressing this issue: http://atlas.cern/updates/atlas-blog/HEP-education-worldwide-with-atlas-open-data

Young Scientist Prize Awarded to ATLAS Physicist Heather Gray

The ATLAS Experiment congratulates Heather Gray, winner of the 2018 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Young Scientist Prize!

Heather Gray was awarded the prize “for her broad and creative contributions as well as leadership in performance and physics analysis in the ATLAS experiment and beyond, culminating in her strong role in the searches and initial measurements of Higgs boson interactions with quarks.”

She accepted her prize at #ICHEP2018 this morning and gave a presentation on her work at ATLAS.

[Physics Briefing] Higgs boson observed decaying to b quarks – at last!

The Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism solves the apparent theoretical impossibility of weak vector bosons (W and Z) to have mass. The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 via its decays into photon, Z and W pairs was a triumph of the Standard Model built upon this mechanism...

[Physics Briefing] Combined measurements of Higgs boson couplings reach new level of precision

The Higgs boson, discovered at the LHC in 2012, has a singular role in the Standard Model of particle physics. Most notable is the Higgs boson’s affinity to mass, which can be likened to the electric charge for an electric field: the larger the mass of a fundamental particle, the larger the strength of its interaction, or “coupling”, with the Higgs boson...
