"Physics with top quarks"
 Slideshow (PDF)
Experimental particle physics has reached a threshold that promises new and exciting insight into the fundamental structure of matter and the origin of particle masses in coming years. Due to its large mass, the top quark plays a key role in this quest for a deeper understanding of nature. We are currently learning a lot about the top quark through measurements at the Fermilab Tevatron. At the LHC at Cern, which starts in 2008, the top quark will become a probe for new physics and a tool for understanding mass generation. I will present our current understanding of the top quark and discuss its role in finding the new physics at the Tevatron and the LHC.
