Quantum Universe Day, 14.09.2021

Congratulations to Afiq for winning the "Best Paper Award" of the Cluster of Excellence Quantum Universe of Universität Hamburg in cooperation with DESY for the paper

The CMS collaboration, “Search for heavy Higgs bosons decaying to a top quark pair in proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV”, JHEP 04 (2020) 171.

"The paper describes a novel search for an exotic heavy scalar or pseudo-scalar particle decaying into a top-antitop quark pair. Dr. Anuar developed and applied beyond state-of-the-art and highly sensitive methods and provided new insights through his interpretation of the data."

Quantum Universe "Best Paper Award"
