Keele Physics Centre Public Lecture Series 2018-19

Good Afternoon All

Date: 22nd November 2018
Time: Lecture starts at 19:30, FREE tea & coffee available in LJ foyer from 18:30
Location: LJ1.75, Lennard Jones Laboratories, Keele University, ST5 5BG
Speaker: Prof. David Evans (University of Birmingham)
Title: High Energy Physics at CERN
Abstract: Abstract: The 27km Large Hadron Collider (LHC), situated 100 metres under the Swiss-French border at CERN near Geneva, is the World's most powerful particle accelerator. In the LHC, protons (hydrogen nuclei) are smashed together at 0.999999991 times the speed of light recreating, for a tiny instant, the violent particle collisions which would have existed less than a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. For about four weeks a year, lead nuclei are accelerated and collided in the LHC producing the highest temperatures and densities ever made in an experiment and recreating the exotic primordial soup which existed at the birth of our Universe. Professor David Evans, from the University of Birmingham, will explain some of the physics behind the LHC and why it was built.

Cost: FREE!

These talks are open to the public and are sponsored by the West Midlands Branch of the IoP. Everyone welcome!
