ATLAS experiment (struttura)
- Brief description
ATLAS is an experiment that is currently collecting data from the CERN LHC accelerator. By studying head-on collisions of protons at extraordinarily high energy, ATLAS has discovered the Higgs boson, it has extended the search for new particles to the TeV scale and it will continue to provide new information related to the fundamental forces that have shaped our Universe.
The Milano group has an important role in the electromagnetic calorimeter, in the pixel detector, in the development of the computational resources and algorithms. The group is currently involved in the study of the Higgs boson and of supersymmetric particles, which are a possible solution to the dark matter enigma.
