2019 Annual Physics & Astronomy Lecture

The Annual Physics & Astronomy Lecture will be delivered by Dr Tim Scanlon.  

Title: What has the Higgs discovery done for you?

Time: 4.15pm

 Location:  Christopher Ingold XLG2 Auditorium


Abstract: To answer fundamental questions about the Universe, ever larger and more complex experiments are needed to collect vast amounts of data, which are then analysed using advanced and computationally intensive techniques. The recent observation of the Higgs boson decaying to a pair of b-quarks by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, will be used to highlight the complex data collection and analysis techniques that are necessary to discovery such rare phenomena. It will then be shown how such fundamental research breakthroughs, not only help us unravel the mysteries of the Universe, but also provide a range of benefits to our society and economy, even helping to improve your commute to work.
