Dr. Nicola De Filippis presents the latest results about Higgs searches

A year after the discovery of the Higgs boson, Dr. Nicola De Filippis, Assistant professor at The National Institute for Nuclear Physics - INFN (Italy), presented the latest results from the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) and A Toroidal LHC Apparatus (ATLAS) experiments during his lecture titled ‘The latest results about Higgs searches’. The lecture took place at Center of Theoretical Physics, Zewail City of Science and Technology, on Wednesday 31 July 2013.

De Filippis explained to the audience how last year has been a great one for Higgs boson, with many achievements and discoveries such as establishing the existence of new particles beyond any doubts, and measuring their mass to 0.5% precision. The lecture was attended by the Center for Theoretical Physics staff and students attended this lecture in addition to other students from the various centers of the City.
