For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Physics and Astronomy program invites the public to a presentation on “Discovering New Particles” by Dr. Sally Seidel, professor of physics at the University of New Mexico, on Thursday, March 16, at 7 p.m. at the UH Hilo Science and Technology Building, Room 108.

Seidel’s presentation will address the discovery of new particles involving teams of people from dozens of nations working together to build experimental facilities so large that if they weren't buried deep underground, they would be visible from space. Seidel’s focus searches for new physics processes with the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and development of new instruments for particle detection. In 2014, her group discovered a new particle, the Bc(2S).
