ATLAS observes Higgs to bb decays  
At the International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP) in South Korea, on July 10th, 2018 Prof. Giacinto Piacquadio presented the latest results on measurements of the Higgs boson , including the first observation of Higgs boson decays to b-quarks by the ATLAS experiment.

The Stony Brook ATLAS group played an important role in making this observation possible: see here for more informations about why observing Higgs to b-quark decays is considered a milestone in particle physics.

In addition, over the next two years Prof. Piacquadio will take the lead at CERN of the overall ATLAS Higgs team composed of more than 500 physicists, supported in his role by the National Science Foundation.
