Talk on Liverpool’s contribution to the LHC

Dr Hannah Levis, Reader in Ophthalmic Bioengineering, Eye & Vision Sciences

Staff are invited to a public lecture to hear about the University’s contribution to the Large Hadron Collider and latest results.

Dr Barry King from the Department of Physics will present the results on searches for new physics, including Higgs, SuperSymmetry and Extra Dimensions, using data collected with the ATLAS experiment during 2011.

The University’s Particle Physics Group has worked on the construction of ATLAS and LHCb – two of the four detectors at the LHC – working closely with engineers and scientists from around the world. Liverpool’s contribution to these detectors was delivered using the Liverpool Semiconductor Detector Centre and Physics Workshops which are central to the Particle Physics Programme.

Hosted by the Institute of Physics, The ATLAS experiment at the LHC: Liverpool’s Contribution and Latest Results, is on Thursday, 15 March at 6.30pm in the Chadwick Lecture Theatre.
