Ep 4: Things That Go Bump In The Light

In this episode, we explore an intriguing new result from ATLAS and CMS looking for new sources of photon pairs. Do we have a statistical fluctuation, or is this the beginning of a new era in particle physics? Is this unexplained bump a close cousin of the Higgs boson, a hint for understanding dark matter, or something no one has thought of? We ask our colleagues what they think might be peeking out of the data.

Ep 3: Particle Zoo

With the recent discovery of the pentaquark, we take a look at the particle zoo — talking to physicists about their favorite particles. We’ll explore their properties and behaviors with physicists who love them.

 

Check out the inspiration for our episode name at particlezoo.net. Thanks to ATLAS Outreach for their support.

Ep 2: The Frenzy

After a two year hiatus, the LHC produced record breaking 13 TeV collisions on June 3, 2015. What have we been up to on the ATLAS experiment in preparation for Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider? We take you through some of the frenzy to get our software and hardware ready for a new era in particle physics.

Ep 1: Hopes and Dreams

In this inaugural episode of In Particular, we explore what ATLAS physicists, as people, would most like to see in new data from Run 2 of the LHC starting any day now. With much higher energy collisions than ever before, the 13 TeV LHC has discovery potential far beyond any previous scientific pursuit. We ask our colleagues what they secretly hope to see in this new data and what drives them to keep searching even years after the discovery of the Higgs boson.
