Prof. Goshaw's Group's First Measurement with ATLAS Experiment

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

We received this update from Prof. Al Goshaw: Mia Liu, my post doc, Andrea Bocci and I have made a first measurement with the ATLAS experiment of W and Z boson produced with high energy photons. This probes the structure of the W/Z/photon coupling in a new energy domain, and is sensitive to technicolor mesons decaying to Wg and Zg. The research was done with 2 other colleagues from Oxford and Academia Sinica. Andrea will present the results at the XIX International Workshop on Deep-Inelastic Scattering April 11-15 at Newport News, Virginia. I will present it at the April APS meeting in Anaheim, California. Mia will travel to CERN in May to participate in more data collection that will be used for her PhD thesis on this topic.
