Schuster Colloquium 4th March - Professor Val Gibson
Fruitful Flavour at the Large Hadron Collider
Over the past few years many new and exciting discoveries, including that of the Higgs Boson, have been pouring out of the Large Hadron Collider. This colloquium will review the topic of "Flavour Physics", which is the search for new phenomena in quantum loop processes, and may hold the key to questions such as "What is the dark matter in the Universe" and "Why is the Universe made of matter and not antimatter?". One of the main experiments at the LHC, the LHCb experiment, is specifically designed for this purpose. This colloquium will provide an overview of the current status of the LHCb experiment, its latest discoveries, and look towards the prospects for the next few years as the LHC increases in energy and luminosity.
The Lecture will be delivered on Wednesday 4th March at 14.30 in the Bragg Lecture Theatre, Schuster Building
