Particle Physics and the LHC

Pevensey I, lecture hall 01A7

Falmer, Brighton

Speakers: Dr David Newbold, University of Bristol

The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s biggest scientific instrument. After twenty years of design and construction, collisions will start within the next few weeks, the first step on a new voyage of discovery into
the world of the incredibly small.
Dr Dave Newbold will explain why particle physics appears complex, but is actually simple — but how building the accelerator and experiments has been more challenging than you might think. He’ll take a look at how the LHC works, see how the experiments are carried out, and talk about some of the new discoveries that could be made in the coming years.
