  • Vector Boson Scattering: Watching the Higgs Boson at Work with the ATLAS Particle Detector

    October 22, 2014

    During this 498th Brookhaven Lecture, Marc-Andre Pleier of the Physics Department provides an overview of the Standard Model of fundamental particles and interactions as well as the Higgs discovery in 2012. He then discusses how he and fellow ATLAS collaborators use the detector to search for "fingerprints" of the rare W-boson scattering process, flaws or breakdowns in the Standard Model, and potential areas to discover new physics.
