Four students of the Wits High Energy Physics group have been honored with prizes by the South African Institute of Physics:

Stefan von Buddenbrock and Mitchell Cox, first prizes for MSc oral presentations at the Nuclear, Particle and Radiation track for
"Dark matter production in association with Higgs bosons through heavy scalar resonance at the LHC"


"Online energy reconstruction on ARM for the ATLAS TileCal sROD co-processing unit"

Daniel Ohene-Kwofie, second prize for poster presentation at the Nuclear, Particle and Radiation track for

"Efficient processing of physics quantities for the Processing Unit for the upgrade of the Tile Calorimeter of ATLAS"

Chad Pelwan, first prize for poster presentation at the Condense Matter track for

“A density functional theory and magnetic resonance studies of radiation damage in plastic scintillators”

All of these students are a part of the SA-CERN programme.

Congratulations to Stefan, Mitch, Daniel and Chad!
