IFAE researchers involved with ATLAS observation of interaction between Higgs boson and top quark

By June 5, 2018June 7th, 2018IFAE

The ATLAS Collaboration at CERN has announced the observation of Higgs bosons produced together with a top-quark pair. Observing this extremely rare process is a significant milestone for the field of High-Energy Physics. It allows physicists to test critical parameters of the Higgs mechanism in the Standard Model of particle physics.

Since 2011 the IFAE-ATLAS group has led searches for ttH production, focusing on the dominant Higgs boson decay mode into a bottom-antibottom-quark pair (H->bb).
