Royal Holloway Physicists are involved in three of the IOP's Physics World Top 10 Breakthroughs for 2012.   The ATLAS group in the RHUL Centre for Particle Physics was part of the No 1 breakthrough, the discovery of a Higgs-like boson at CERN.  The ATLAS group faculty are Dr. Tracey Berry, Dr. Veronique Boisvert, Prof. Glen Cowan, and Dr. Pedro Teixeira-Dias.  Prof. Glen Cowan is also an author of the No 3 breakthrough paper, the first direct measurement of time-reversal violation at the BaBar experiment.  Dr. Joseph Walding in the Dark Matter group in the RHUL Centre for Particle Physics is an author of the 9th breakthrough, which is first demonstration of communication using neutrinos, using the Minerva detector at Fermilab.
