4 p.m. - 5:15 p.m. Location: SLC 1.102
Dr. Joe Izen (UT Dallas)
The highlight of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider “Run 1” was the discovery of the Higgs Boson. Since data-taking ended two years ago, the experimentalists and the accelerator physicists have been busy repairing and upgrading the ATLAS experiment subdetectors and the LHC itself during Long Shutdown 1. The role of the major accelerator and detector components, and how they were used to the discovery of the Higgs boson and some changes in store for Run 2 will be described, with pictures, animations, and some “home videos” recorded during Izen’s 14 months stay at CERN to work on ATLAS.
