Search for the Z and Higgs bosons
Prof. Christine Kourkoumelis, Stelios Vourakis, IASA
Duration: 4 hrs
Equipment: PC with internet connection
Students are introduced to the world of high energy physics and the work being done at CERN and the ATLAS experiment. They get the chance to learn about the new discoveries of physics in that field and the mechines that are necessary for them. They also get a taste of what itʼs like to be an actual physicist searching for new particles in the laboratory exercise with HYPATIA where they “discover” the Z and Higgs bosons.
