‘What the World is made of’ was the question addressed by Prof. Dr. Arnulf Quadt, Professor, Experimental Particle Physics, University of Göttingen, Germany, at the Science Circle Lecture on 26th March at the German Embassy.
In his presentation, Porf. Quadt explained latest scientific discoveries in particle physics made at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva. LHC is the particle physics collider with the highest energy world-wide.
Dr. Quadt’s current research includes particle physics at accelerators (Large Hadron Collider and Tevatron), pixel detector development, grid computing and data analysis. He is well known for several initiatives in outreach activities in Physics at Georg-August-Universität Göttingen such as the Physics Show - Magical Physics (Zauberhafte Physik); Physics in Advent (PiA); Physics for Refugees (PfF); Hands-on Particle Physics - International Masterclasses for High School Students; and “Rent-a-Scientist”- Programme for Schools.
The Lecture was organised by the German Embassy and the German Centre for Innovation and Research (DWIH). It was very well attended by young scientists, students and teachers.
