Hamamatsu Congratulates Recipients of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics

Nov 19 2013

Hamamatsu Photonics congratulates François Englert (Professor Emeritus, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium) and Peter W. Higgs (Professor Emeritus, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom) for being awarded this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences for “the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.”

Hamamatsu’s employees are proud that the company’s detectors played a role in these great experiments. In particular, the engineers who were involved in the development and manufacture of these detectors are delighted by this award, which validates that the performance of their products met the high expectations of CERN. As a company, Hamamatsu hopes that the discovery of the Higgs particle will give rise to new technologies and new industries in the future, just as the discovery of the electron did in the 20th century.
