Extracting Higgs boson couplings from LHC data

Speaker: 
Heather Logan (Carleton U)
Event Date and Time: 
Thu, 2015-10-29 14:00 - 15:00
Location: 
TRIUMF Auditorium


The Higgs boson is supposedly the particle in the Standard Model responsible for giving mass to all the other fundamental particles. To test this proposition, we need to measure the interaction strengths of the Higgs with other particles and see if they correspond to the measured particle masses. In this talk I'll review some of the technical challenges faced when trying to extract the Higgs boson's couplings to other particles and describe how studying concrete models with extended Higgs sectors can help.

Layered Nanoparticles for Targeted Alpha Generator Radiotherapy

Hunting for new physics with taus at ATLAS

Speaker: 
Sarah Demers (Yale)
Event Date and Time: 
Tue, 2015-09-15 14:00 - 15:00
Location: 
TRIUMF Auditorium


CERN's Large Hadron Collider has delivered enough high energy data to enable discovery and exploration by the LHC experiments.  The few thousand members of the ATLAS Collaboration have used this data to discover and make measurements of standard model particles and to search for physics beyond the standard model.  In this talk I will share the successes and challenges of physics at the LHC from the perspective of using one particle, the tau lepton, as a probe for new physics.

When Art Meets Science

Speaker: 
David Harris (TRIUMF Artist in Residence)
Event Date and Time: 
Thu, 2015-08-27 14:00 - 15:00
Location: 
TRIUMF Auditorium


The current TRIUMF artist-in-residence, David Harris, will discuss the relationship between science and art, consider their compatibility, and dissect their differences. He will talk about what it means to do research in an artistic context and what research questions are driving him at the moment. The presentation will include an early draft of his typology of science art, illustrated by a wide variety of pieces from around the world. He will also show pieces from his body of work in science art and reveal a new piece developed during his stay at TRIUMF.
