The Higgs boson and Particle Physics at the LHC: Continuing the exploration of fundamental physics

Lecture 2, Brooks Building, Manchester Metropolitan University, 53 Bonsall Street, Manchester, M15 6GX

Speakers: Professor Daniela Bortoletto, University of Oxford

The discovery of the Higgs boson with a mass of about 125 GeV at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, was a triumph for both experimental and theoretical particle physics. However, this discovery raises major questions about the nature of this particle and its mass. Now the LHC is colliding protons at 13 TeV, the highest energy ever achieved in the world, opening up the exploration of a new uncharted physics territory. I will present what we have learned about the Higgs boson and I will highlight selected results on searches for new phenomena that have been made possible by the higher collision energies.

GPS/Sat Navs
Enter the postcode M15 5JH into Google Maps or a sat nav, which will direct you to Stretford Road. Turn south onto Old Birley Street and continue for approximately 500 yards. Turn left onto Greenheys Lane West. Turn left onto the A5103/Princess Road (Northbound) then immediately exit on to the slip road towards the Brooks Building. Take the first left for the multi-storey car park and the second left for visitor and disabled parking

Talk starts at 18.30 with refreshments from 18.00. No booking required.
