There will be no rest at Point 5, site of the CMS detector, during the long shutdown
In proton collisions at the LHC, vector boson fusion (VBF) happens when quarks from each one of the two colliding protons radiate W or Z bosons that subsequently interact or "fuse" as in the Feynman d...
More than 20 years ago, the CMS and ATLAS experiments at the LHC embarked on a long road into the unknown and, rather like Christopher Columbus, the two collaborations reached a new land last summer....
As more data rolled in, new results rolled out.
One of the classic signals expected for a quark–gluon plasma (QGP) is the radiation of "thermal photons", with a spectrum reflecting the temperature of the system.
The top quark is the heaviest point-like particle known. It weighs about as much as an atom of tungsten yet is an elementary building block of the Standard Model of particle physics.
News from the DIS 2012 workshop held earlier this year in Bonn.
Photons are a critical tool at the LHC, and the ATLAS detector has been carefully designed to measure photons precisely.
The LHCb experiment was originally conceived of to study particles containing the beauty-flavoured b quark.
The big news this summer was on the new Higgs-like boson and how the hint of an excess in last year’s 7 TeV data from the LHC became an observation with this year’s 8 TeV data.
