Presentation by Professor Lluís GarridoProf. Lluís Garrido, member of the Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona on the Particle Physics Workshop 2020. This talk describes what Particle Physics is and its purpose.
Prof. Garrido shows the most important experiments performed at CERN today in Particle Physics, the largest particle laboratory in the world. There, we can find the LHC detector, Large Hadron Collider, the largest and most powerful particle accelerator in the world. Various experiments, ATLAS, CMS, ALICE, and LHCb, are being performed on this detector depending on the position of the particle detectors.

What will we learn from Particle Physics?

1. The Difference Between Particle Physics and Astrophysics: Particle physics looks at matter at small distances and it is complementary with astrophysics looking at matter over great distances.

2. The purpose of particle physics: to study the fundamental structures of matter.

3. What are the basic particles? The electrons, the quarks and the light particle, the photon (and some more).

and much more!
