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.
