ATLAS Oxford Group
We are one of the founding members of the ATLAS experiment, with work spanning more than two decades. A major contribution was the design, prototyping, construction and commissioning of the detector, and in particular of the Semiconductor Tracker barrels (which were assembled in the basement of the Denys Wilkinson Building). Currently, members of our group are:
- Leading ATLAS physics analyses, including Searches for New Physics beyond the SM, understanding the properties of the Higgs boson and Standard Model precision measurements.
- On-site at CERN developing and organising the triggers, simulations, calibrations, software and physics analyses for the 13 TeV run.
- Performing in-house R&D towards a replacement tracking detector, designed to operate at ten times the current rate of collisions for the High-Luminosity upgrade of the LHC in 2020 (HL-LHC).
