Physics & Astronomy Seminar--Searching for new Physics with the CMS Experiment

3:30 PM  - 4:30 PM
Wednesday Nov 15, 2017
Olin-Rice Science Center 150

Julie Hogan, Assistant Professor, Bethel University, Physics & Engineering Department will present.

The Large Hadron Collider is one of the most powerful machines in the world, accelerating protons to nearly the speed of light to provide 40 million collisions per second at particle detectors such as the Compact Muon Solenoid. The CMS detector is highly versatile, featuring the largest superconducting solenoid ever built and over 100 million detection elements. CMS physicists were instrumental in the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 and are now searching for evidence of new physics, including heavy vector-like quarks. I'll present a recent search for vector-like quarks using W and Higgs boson jet reconstruction algorithms, and introduce a new effort to use computer vision techniques to classify jets at the high luminosity LHC.

Snacks at 3 PM.
