NewsEnglert, Higgs Awarded 2013 Nobel Prize in physics:
"for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider"

- Our First Masterclass! (Apr 19, 2011)
- Prime Time at the LHC (Mar 9, 2011)
The High Energy Physics Group at Simon Fraser University is interested in hadron collider physics at the highest available energies. We wish to probe matter at the smallest scales to better understand nature's fundamental constituents and interactions.
The experimental particle physics group is playing a leading role in the ATLAS Experiment. Mike Vetterli is the principal investigator for ATLAS at SFU and is also the project leader for ATLAS' Canadian Tier-I data center at TRIUMF. Dugan O'Neil is the deputy spokesperson of ATLAS-Canada and is the principal investigator for the Compute Canada installation at SFU (providing ATLAS with Tier-II computing), Bernd Stelzer is the ATLAS-Canada Physics coordinator and a project leader in ATLAS global monitoring and in the search for new physics. In the past we have also worked on CDF and D0 at the Tevatron. Dugan O'Neil was the founding spokeperson of the D0-Canada collaboration and Bernd Stelzer was the SFU PI for CDF.
