Beyond the Standard Model: About Beauty Particles, Antimatter and a New Force of Nature

Prof. Marcel Merk
Professor of Particle Physics

Why are there no antimatter particles in the universe? Why do matter particles exist in three virtually identical copies? Solving this puzzle is the goal of the LHCb experiment taking place in the CERN particle accelerator, near Geneva, in which Maastricht University is involved. This experiment may have discovered a new force of nature. In his lecture, Marcel Merk discusses the experiment, which provides new insight into the very first fraction of the existence of the universe.
