Mural ATLAS experiment CERN & MUSE poster TOUR 2012

ATLAS Experiment. ATLAS event containing four muons.This event is consistent with coming from two Z particles decaying: both Z particles decay to two muons each. Such events are produced by Standard Model processes without Higgs particles. They are also a possible signature for Higgs particle production, but many events must be analysed together in order to tell if there is a Higgs signal. This view is a zoom into the central part of the detector. The four muons are picked out as red tracks. Other tracks and deposits of energy in the calorimeters are shown in yellow.

The ATLAS experiment & the search for the Higgs Boson
On 4 July, 2012, the ATLAS experiment presented a preview of its updated results on the search for the Higgs Boson. The results were shown at a seminar held jointly at CERN and via video link at ICHEP, the International Conference for High Energy Physics in Melbourne, Australia, where detailed analyses will be presented later this week. At CERN, preliminary results were presented to scientists on site and via webcast to their colleagues located in hundreds of institutions around the world. "The search is more advanced today than we imagined possible," said ATLAS spokesperson Fabiola Gianotti. "We observe in our data clear signs of a new particle, at the level of 5 sigma, in the mass region around 126 GeV. The outstanding performance of the LHC and ATLAS and the huge efforts of many people have brought us to this exciting stage. A little more time is needed to finalize these results, and more data and more study will be needed to determine the new particle’s properties. http://atlas.ch/news/2012/latest-results-from-higgs-search.html

ATLAS experiment & la búsqueda del Bosón de  Higgs
Hoy, 4 de julio de 2012, el experimento ATLAS ha presentado un anticipo de los últimos resultados obtenidos en la búsqueda del bosón de Higgs en un seminario mantenido conjuntamente entre el CERN y la conferencia ICHEP (International Conference for High Energy Physics) en Melbourne, Australia. Todos los detalles de este análisis serán mostrados en esta conferencia a lo largo de esta semana. Los resultados preliminares han sido presentados en el CERN tanto a todos los científicos presentes como a todos sus colegas, vía webcast, diseminados alrededor del mundo en cientos de institutos de investigación. “La búsqueda está mucho más avanzada hoy de lo que hubiéramos podido imaginar” ha declarado la portavoz del experimento ATLAS, Fabiola Gianotti. “Hemos observado en nuestros datos claras evidencias de una nueva partícula, a 5 sigmas, en la región de masas en torno a 126 GeV. El excepcional funcionamiento tanto del LHC como de ATLAS, junto con el tremendo esfuerzo de mucha gente, ha conducido a este emocionante panorama. Sin embargo, aún necesitamos un poco más de tiempo para concretar estos resultados, así como acumular más datos y realizar más estudios para poder determinar las propiedades de esta nueva partícula”.http://atlas.ch/news/2012/HiggsStatementATLAS-Spanish1.pdf
