Physics Colloquium

"The ATLAS Experiment Getting Ready for LHC - Exploring the High-Energy Frontier of Particle Physics"

Presented by Peter Jenni, CERN

Tuesday, April 4, 2006, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

At the CERN Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) project is well advanced. First proton-proton collisions at the high-energy frontier are expected for the second half of 2007. In parallel to the collider construction the powerful general-purpose ATLAS detector is being assembled in its underground cavern by a world-wide collaboration of more than 150 Universities and Laboratories. ATLAS will explore new domains of particle physics. The status of LHC and ATLAS will be discussed, as well as the rich prospects for exciting new physics that are anticipated.
