The Department of Physics at Royal Holloway University of London presents:

Dr Veronique Boisvert (RHUL) – A Tunnel to the Beginning of Time

The Large Hadron Collider is currently undergoing a series of upgrades at CERN in Switzerland. The collisions happening 100 meters underground involve energies never before achieved in the laboratory which may shed light on new fundamental particles, or even new concepts of space-time! In this lecture, Dr Boisvert will give an introduction to particle physics and review significant discoveries made by the ATLAS detector, including the famous Higgs particle. She will also explain what we might expect to learn from the huge dataset currently being analysed.

Introduction by Anna Christodoulou (SEPnet/Ogden Trust Outreach Officer) and Professor Glen Cowan (RHUL):
