ATLAS - Physics
The Standard Model Accounts for 5% of the known Universe. There is still 27% Dark Matter and 68% Dark Energy. We are using the newly discovered Higgs Boson as a Portal to search for Dark Matter at ATLAS.
ATLAS - Engineering
Radiation doses in the ATLAS Inner Tracker will reach 6 MGray. Novel radiation hard Fibre Optic sensors are being developed and deployed as humidity sensors. Their placement is studied by ANSYS CFX.
Entanglement links two spatially distant measurements, eg, by a violation of a Bell Inequality. Accelerating frames leads to a relative Thomas precession. Can entanglement be used to detect forces in general, and specifically, gravity at very small distances and also higher dimensions?
