ATLAS collaboration recognises outstanding works: Physics would not be such a productive field if it weren’t for all the bachelor, master and PhD students who build detectors and analyse data, especially in experiments in particle physics.

The collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva recognise outstanding contributions through thesis awards. Nedaa Alexandra Asbah and Luise Poley, two former PhD students from DESY, today received awards for their theses from the ATLAS collaboration that runs the gigantic ATLAS detector at CERN.

Luise Poley, who was a member of the ATLAS group in Zeuthen, is now Chamberlain Fellow at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in the United States. She continues her work on the upgrade of one of the innermost subdetectors of the ATLAS detector, the inner tracker, which was also the subject of her PhD thesis.

Nedaa Alexandra Asbah wrote her thesis on the production of Higgs particles in association with top quarks decaying into a pair of bottom quarks. She started a postdoc position at Harvard University in the US in May, working on data from the LHC as well as on the upgrade of ATLAS.  Read more
