One KVAB 2020 Science Communication awards goes to a be.h member

Michael Tytgat has been awarded the annual science communication prize for conceiving and leading the Cool Physics Days project. The jury has nothing but praise for the trans- and interdisciplinary approach to bring a not-so-obvious branch of science (particle physics) to the general public. In all areas, thought was given to reducing barriers and providing… Continue reading One KVAB 2020 Science Communication awards goes to a be.h member

PRESS RELEASE: Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

Brussels, Monday 4 June 2018: The first observation of the simultaneous production of a Higgs particle with a top quark-antiquark pair was published today in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters. This major milestone, first reported by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Collaboration in April 2018 and today also reported by the ATLAS Collaboration, unambiguously… Continue reading PRESS RELEASE: Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

NA62 presents first results on Very Rare Kaon Decays

On Sunday 11th of March, NA62 collaboration presented in Moriond the first results of the K+→π+νν analysis. This decay channel has a branching ratio in the SM of (8.4±1.0)×10-11 with solid theoretical predictions dominated by short distance contributions and with the hadronic uncertainties well under control. This channel is a golden one in the search of… Continue reading NA62 presents first results on Very Rare Kaon Decays
