Grandunified thoeries-weak,strong & electromagnetic forces. Standard Electroweak theory-weak & electromagnetic forces.PowerPoint Presentation: Loss of Unity in the Forces of Nature Characterization Forces Unified Time Since Beginning Temperature (GeV) * All 4 forces unified Gravity, Strong, Electromagnetic, Weak ~0 ~infinite Gravity separates (Planck Scale) Strong, Electromagnetic, Weak 10 -43 s 10 19 Strong force separates (GUTs Scale) Electromagnetic, Weak 10 -35 s 10 14 Split of weak and electromagnetic forces None 10 -11 s 100 Present Universe None 10 10 y 10 -12Spontaneous symmetry breaking: Spontaneous symmetry breaking Yoichiro Nambu The Nobel Prize in Physics 2008 for the discovery of the mechanism of spontaneous broken symmetry in subatomic physicsPowerPoint Presentation: It is a spontaneous process by which a system in a symmetrical state ends up in an asymmetrical state Agent : Higgs Field Occurs at low temperature Necessary to interpret the mass of elementary particles.Higgs Mechanism: Kind of mass generation mechanism A process that give mass to elementary particles Particles gain mass by interacting Higgs field that permeates all over the space. The Higgs mechanism endows gauge boson in a gauge theory with mass through absorption of Nambu–Goldstone bosons arising in spontaneous symmetry breaking Higgs MechanismPowerPoint Presentation: In the Standard Model, the phrase "Higgs mechanism" refers specifically to the generation of masses for the W±, and Z weak gauge bosons through electroweak symmetry breakingTWO INTERPRETATIONS FOR HIGGS MECHANISM: TWO INTERPRETATIONS FOR HIGGS MECHANISMPowerPoint Presentation: The Waldegrave Higgs challenge In 1993, the then UK Science Minister, William Waldegrave, issued a challenge to physicists to answer the questions: 'What is the Higgs boson, and why do we want to find it?’ on one side of a sheet of paper. David Miller of UCL won a bottle of champagne for the following :PowerPoint Presentation: Imagine a room full of political activistsPowerPoint Presentation: The Prime Minister walks inPowerPoint Presentation: He is surrounded by a cluster of people Analogous to generation of MassPowerPoint Presentation: Imagine the same room againPowerPoint Presentation: A interesting rumour is introducedPowerPoint Presentation: Soon we have a cluster of people discussing it Analogous to Higgs bosonPowerPoint Presentation: “Mexican hat or sombrero interpretation”Hence,: Hence,PowerPoint Presentation: Man can’t slide initially to down because of immense temperature. As temperature decreases he slides down to the rim of the sombrero.Hence,: Hence,Completion of picture: Completion of picture A Weak charge of Higgs field – impart mass to matter particles having a charge.(e g: electron, Gauge bosons etc) Particles missing a weak charge- no mass(e g: photon)Higgs Boson: Higgs BosonHiggs Boson: Higgs BosonHiggs Boson: Higgs Boson Major Scientists :: Major Scientists :Brief description on Large Hadron Collider(LHC): Brief description on Large Hadron Collider(LHC)PowerPoint Presentation: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is located in a circular tunnel 27 km (17 miles) in circumference. The tunnel is buried around 100 m (about the size of a football field) underground. It straddles the Swiss and French borders on the outskirts of Geneva ..Luminosity: Determines the probability of collision Luminosity What is luminosity? “Luminosity is the number of particles per unit area per unit time times the opacity of the target”PowerPoint Presentation: L = f n N 1 N 2 where A f is the revolution frequency (c/27 km) n is the number of bunches in one beam in the storage ring. (2808 bunches) Ni is the number of particles in each bunch (billions) A is the cross section of the beam (40 m)PowerPoint Presentation: 6 areas around circumference that will collect and analyze data ATLAS CMS ALICE LHCb TOTEM (minor study) LHCf (minor study )References:: Leon Lederman- The God Particle : If Universe is the Answer, What is the question (2006) Search for the Higgs Boson –John V .Lee(2006) Wikipedia and other related sites References:PowerPoint Presentation: Thank you You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
