New ATLAS result of ultra-rare B-meson decay to muon pair


Aidan Grummer in the Seidel Lab

On 20 September 2018, at the International Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle (CKM 2018), ATLAS revealed the most stringent experimental constraint of the very rare decay of the B0 meson into two muons as a result of UNM graduate student Aidan Grummer and Professor Sally Seidel working with a small international team within the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.

Aiden received the US Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) award earlier this year. He is a UNM alumnus and an area high school graduate.
