"The First Three Years of the LHC": Experts discuss results derived from the "world machine"

21.03.2013
Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics founded as part of PRISMA Cluster of Excellence – top-ranking international scientists meet for workshop in Mainz

The sensational discovery of the Higgs particle in the summer of 2012 put the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) into the spotlight of worldwide attention. At the same time, the breakthrough proved the enormous capability of the particle accelerator.

In order to upgrade the LHC for the use in experiments at even higher collision energies, it was shut down in February 2012. Following the initiative of the newly-founded Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics (MITP), highly-renowned experts are meeting in Mainz from March 18 to 22, 2013 to investigate the results of the data collected by the LHC.

"It is highly appropriate that the inaugural workshop of MITP centers on the consequences emerging from one of the most profound discoveries of the past 30 years," Matthias Neubert, professor for theoretical particle physics at Mainz University and founding director of the institute, stressed in his opening remarks. "With the Higgs discovery, particle physics has entered a crucial stage of further development. The findings ahead could shape our worldview in a similarly revolutionary way as the theory of relativity or quantum mechanics did in the early part of the last century." The scientists currently assess the status of the analyses of the data provided by the LHC and estimate the potential for the discovery of new physics. New models could possibly replace the existing standard model of particle physics, which at present can only explain a fraction of matter in the universe.

MITP was established as part of the Cluster of Excellence PRISMA ("Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter"). About 250 scientists collaborate in this new research cooperation, which will receive funding of EUR 35 million over the next five years. The cluster focuses on central questions concerning the nature of the fundamental constituents of matter and their significance for the physics of the universe. MITP represents a major initiative of the cluster, which aims at becoming an international theory center in the long run. For this purpose, the institute organizes scientific programs, workshops, and conferences, in close cooperation with external researchers. It thus provides scientists from different research areas in theoretical physics with a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange.

The current workshop "The First Three Years of the LHC," taking place at "Schloss Waldthausen" in Mainz, pursues the goal of fostering discussions and close cooperation among the participants as well as developing new ideas and refining the calculation methods required for the interpretation of LHC data. The participants of the workshop work in different fields of high-energy physics. Among them are a number of highly acclaimed researchers from the U.S., as well as members of the LHC collaborations, who deal with the analysis of the recent experimental data.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: Transparente Beschichtung für Alltagsanwendungen

Sport- und Outdoorbekleidung, die Wasser und Schmutz abweist, oder Windschutzscheiben, an denen kein Wasser kondensiert – viele alltägliche Produkte können von stark wasserabweisenden Beschichtungen profitieren. Am Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) haben Forscher um Dr. Bastian E. Rapp einen Werkstoff für solche Beschichtungen entwickelt, der sowohl transparent als auch abriebfest ist: „Fluoropor“, einen fluorierten Polymerschaum mit durchgehender Nano-/Mikrostruktur. Sie stellen ihn in Nature Scientific Reports vor. (DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15287-8)
