Abstract

Australian researchers have been involved with the A Toroidal Lagre Hadron Collider ApparatuS (ATLAS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider since the early 1990's. They have had significant roles in ATLAS hardware design and construction, software development, and in the deployment of a data computing grid, thereby paving the way for groundbreaking discoveries surrounding the fundamental laws and origin of our universe. By performing a search for Higgs bosons, required in many models of particle physics but which have so far not been observed, this research embodies the final step on this road to discovery. The huge publicity surrounding the discovery potential at the Large Hadron Collider..
