Discovering New Particles: What Patterns in Nature Might Tell Us About the Structure of the Universe

Thursday April 20, 2017
5:00 pm

 Presenter:  Sally Seidel
Professor of Physics
University of New Mexico and a member of the ATLAS Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider. 
 Series:  Sigma Xi Public Talk
 Abstract:  Discovering new particles involves teams of thousands of people, from dozens of nations, working together to build experimental facilities so large that if they weren't buried deep underground, they would be visible from space.  The detectors typically have tens of millions of components specially designed and built for this purpose alone.  Why is all this effort worthwhile?  This talk will explain how each new particle has the potential to unlock the answer to a fundamental question about the nature of the universe.
 Host:  Harjit Ahluwalia
 Location:  Room G, UNM Conference Center
