Physicist Searches for Billion Year Old Particles

26 January 2015

Dr. Joe Haley, assistant professor of physics, is one of the leaders of the OSU High Energy Physics group that has joined scientists from around the world conducting research near Geneva, Switzerland, at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research to discover subatomic particles that haven't existed for billions of years. Haley's team is currently searching for vector-like quarks, particles predicted by theorists to explain some of the problems in the Standard Model of physics. If these particles are found, it would transform the current thinking of particle physics and help answer questions like the source of dark matter. The complete article with a brief video interview of Dr. Haley is available on the College of A&S Website.
