International Physics Masterclasses

Get to work!

You are now ready to take on the main task of this Masterclass: Using freshly collected data from the ATLAS experiment you will rediscover the Z boson and some other particles and search the Higgs boson.

You will use your new knowledge of identifying particles and some basic physics and realize that you have just mastered a powerful tool to also "discover" new particles never seen in Nature before, such as the Z', a hypothetical big brother of the Z boson.
