At our July meeting, Professor Jon Butterworth will give a talk titled CERN, the LHC and all that – an update from the energy frontier.
Professor Butterworth is a Professor of Physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of University College, London. He works on the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), focusing on physics processes at the LHC which will help us discover more about electroweak symmetry breaking, or basically “why some things have mass”. This has included searching for the Higgs boson, discovered in July 2012. Professor Butterworth is currently working on using precision measurements at the LHC to quantify how well the Standard Model reflects recent findings.
The Meeting will start at 7.45pm. The hall doors are open from 7:00pm and members are welcome to attend from this time to assist, set up the hall and socialise.
