Top Quark Production July 13, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in physics.
I’m listening to the last day of talks at the ATLAS Overview week. A talk just pointed out that we expect about one top quark to be produced in ATLAS (and CMS) every second. At the Tevatron, on a very good day the rate is closer to 1 every couple of minutes! A 1 fb-1 sample of data at the LHC is going to be worth so much more than the Tevatron when it comes to this high-pT physics. Of course, this is the reason we built the machine!
