Road to Discovery of ATLAS/LHC
California State University, Fresno
After 15 years of construction, the 10 billion dollar Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) will start collision by the end of 2009. The ATLAS experiment of the LHC has great discovery potential for new physics (Higgs, Supersymmetry, micro black holes etc). After an introduction of High Energy Physics (HEP), I will focus on the great expectations of new physics discoveries at the ATLAS experiments and the experimental challenges. I will also describe the ATLAS program at Fresno State and the ongoing CSU ATLAS consortium effort.
Refreshments at 11:00 AM. Seminar begins at 11:10 AM.
