Francois Baron Englert (born 1932), Belgian physicist, signing a Lego model of the ATLAS detector at CERN. Englert was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2013, along with the British physicist Peter Higgs (born 1929). The prize was for their work on the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism, which explains how subatomic particles are given mass through their interaction with the Higgs field. He is currently Professor emeritus at the Universite libre de Bruxelles, and a member of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University, California, USA. Photographed on 24 February 2014 during his first visit to CERN after being awarded the Nobel Prize.
