ATLAS Higgs information

The high energy physics group at UTA is involved in three main research areas: (1) The ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (2) The LBNE and ORKA neutrino experiments at Fermilab (3) The future International Linear Collider (ILC). UTA has played major roles in both hardware and computing/software in ATLAS for more than 15 years.  In 2012 ATLAS and CMS announced the discovery of a Higgs boson-like particle that completes the theoretical framework known as the "Standard Model" in elementary particle physics.
