The Higgs boson, ten years after its discovery
July 4, 2022
The landmark discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC exactly ten years ago, and the progress made since then to determine its properties, have allowed physicists to make tremendous steps forward in our understanding of the universe. The Collider Physics Group at IFAE joined the ATLAS collaboration since its inception. For 30 years it has contributed to the design and construction of the experiment and the physics analysis program.
