Episode 14 - The Higgs Boson - ft. Dr. Dominik Duda

Episodes 12 and 13 Episodes list Episodes 15 and 16

A warm welcome to our new host, Juli!
In this episode, Juli dives right into the topic of the Higgs boson discovery and its implications with Dr. Dominik Duda, a post-doctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Physics. Dominik explains the theoretical background behind the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 and why it took so long to detect it from the first time its existence was proposed in the 1960s. He also talks in detail about the technology that allowed this discovery to happen, how the research direction changed since then, as well as about the new theoretically proposed particles and phenomena that are yet to be discovered.
Dominik talks about ATLAS, a particle detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, how it is constructed and upgraded, and how it can be used to identify the traces that different fundamental building blocks of matter leave behind. He describes the insights on the Higgs boson and other particles that can be gained thanks to it.
