Brief description The discovery of the Higgs boson with the ATLAS experiment at the CERN laboratory�s Large Hadron Collider, has been a highlight for Australian science. Our scientists will build upon the foundation of the Higgs discovery to further probe the nature of matter at the finest scales and highest energies. Detailed measurements of the Higgs characteristics will determine if it is as predicted by the Standard Model or whether it admits a variation, signalling new physics. The upgrade in this proposal will provide for such detailed measurements. It will also allow sensitive probes of new physics, searching for new particles or unexpected interactions. This excellent leverage on our investment in the ATLAS facility is outstanding value for money.
