Conference on the Nature of Particles

In November, the chapter held a conference titled “Beyond the New Boson (Higgs?),” which took place at the Argentina Army University in Buenos Aires. The Large Hadron Collider is the world's largest particle accelerator, built 100 meters underground near Geneva. Through Alice, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb detectors, scientists worldwide are studying the nature of fundamental particles that make up the universe. At this conference, Fernando Monticeli, Ph.d., a member of the experimental group studying particles at the University of La Plata, said the results obtained by ATLAS, which led to the discovery of a new boson in the framework of the search for the Higgs, and subsequent studies are necessary in order to determine the properties of the Higgs. He briefly explained how it is done in the ATLAS search for physics beyond the standard model, showing some representative results. Also during the conference, Monticeli received a Distinguished Membership diploma in recognition of his continued collaboration with the chapter.
