Experimental High Energy Physics on ATLAS

Candidate Higgs boson decay to four muons
Candidate Higgs boson decay to four muons (2012 data)

The ATLAS group at the University of Massachusetts Amherst studies proton-proton collisions at the highest energies yet achieved in the laboratory at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, in hopes of finding new fundamental particles and interactions. The group consists of three faculty, a research scientist, three postdoctoral research associates, and between three and five graduate students.
