Weekly news - from the world of accelerators, physics, experiments, alumni and events.
This week, we feature the ATLAS experiment and its search for pairs of Higgs bosons in a rare particle decay. One property that remains to be experimentally verified is whether the Higgs boson is able to couple to itself, known as self-coupling. Such an interaction would contribute to the production of a pair of Higgs bosons in the LHC's high-energy proton–proton collisions, an incredibly rare process in the Standard Model – more than 1000 times rarer than the production of a single Higgs boson!

We reach for the stars with two of the co-founders of the fastest growing Polish company operating in the space sector, Grzegorz Brona and Grzegorz Kasprowicz who feature in this week’s Spotlight on CERN Alumni. You too could be part of Creotech Instrumentation SA’s stellar adventure: https://alumni.cern/news/412982
For those of you seeking career advice, two upcoming events might provide you with valuable insight. On Friday 23 April, we are organising the 4th in the series of the CERN Alumni Virtual Company Showrooms, where you can meet CERN alumni working in the fintech company Evooq: https://alumni.cern/events/55940https://alumni.cern/events/55940
On Friday 30 April, we will be joined by six alumni now working in the Environment Industry in the 6th in the series of ‘Moving out of Academia to,..’ Meet the panellists, register and prepare your questions! https://indico.cern.ch/e/MOOAT/Environmental_Industry
Finally, we are looking for CERNois(e)s who were working at CERN in the 1970’s to help us identify people, places and equipment who feature in CERN photo collections. Help us preserve CERN’s digital memory and join us online next Wednesday from 14:30 CET: https://alumni.cern/events/54369
