Title: From Walton to the LHC
This seminar will feature a brief overview of the forthcoming experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. The relevance of the work of Ernest Walton, Ireland’s Nobel laureate in physics, will be explained. Experiments that will search for physics beyond the Standard Model will also be discussed.
