On Friday July 13 at noon, faculty and other members of the Physics Department helped the campus community understand the significance of discovering the Higgs Boson, the particle that was predicted by Peter Higgs almost 50 years ago. Mark Richards, Executive Dean of the College of Letters & Sciences, will host this discussion for the Berkeley community.
Professors Beate Heinemann, an experimental physicist and a member of the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in CERN, Switzerland, and Lawrence Hall, a theoretical physicist and former Director of the Berkeley Center for Theoretical Physics, explained what the Higgs is, why it was predicted and how it was proven to exist. They were joined by panel members Professor Marjorie Shapiro, also a member of the Atlas experiment, Miller Fellow Josh Ruderman and PhD student and ATLAS member Louise Skinnari.
