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. See more
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?
