Physics Department Colloquium - CANCELLED

Date: Thu. 3 Nov, 2016 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: Workman Center

This event has been cancelled.  Sally Seidel of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of New Mexico will present the Physics Department colloquium. Her talk is titled "A New State of Beauty and Charm." Seidel will discuss the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN, which recently announced the observation of a particle with properties consistent with expectations for an excited state of the Bc meson. This is the heaviest meson state of two different quark flavors and the first member of the Bc family to be observed above the ground state. The observation provides opportunities for testing predictions based on QCD, the theory of the strong force, and may contribute to extraction of the strong interaction potential. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
