Speaker information

Prof Jon Butterworth, Head of Department (Physics & Astronomy), UCL Mathematical and Physical Sciences Faculty

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is using proton-proton collisions to explore physics at higher energies than ever before. This is the region where the weak and electromagnetic forces unify, where mass originates, and where a new particle – looking very much like the Higgs boson – has just been found. The talk will give an account of the discovery and an update on progress since.
