Featured Research: 25 years on: a single top quark partners with the Z boson

A quarter-century after its discovery, physicists at the ATLAS Experiment are gaining new insight into the heaviest-known particle: the top quark. The huge amount of data collected during Run 2 of the LHC (2015-2018) has allowed physicists to study rare production processes of the top quark in great detail, including its production in association with other heavy elementary particles.  This measurement was made possible in part due to significant contributions from OU physicists M. Alhroob, P. Gutierrez, J. Lambert, and B. Abbott.
