The CMS collaboration has made the first observation of the ϒ(3S) meson in heavy-ion collisions.
Many interesting searches and results were presented at Moriond QCD and High Energy Interactions.
The heavy-ion physics programme at LHC Run 3 will provide deep insights into the rich field of QCD phenomenology.
ALICE explores the rapid expansion of the QGP under large pressure gradients.
The ALICE collaboration has used ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions to test the limits of hadronisation.
Precise measurements of the Z-boson production cross section by LHCb provide an implicit test of quantum chromodynamics.
The freshly-completed upgrade of the detectors and the harvest of Pb–Pb collision data expected in Run 3 will further improve the measurements.
A new measurement by the ALICE collaboration has demonstrated for the first time that jets become narrower after “quenching” in quark–gluon plasma.
The engagement of international partners and early-career scientists will be pivotal for successful delivery of the Electron–Ion Collider.
By measuring the transverse momentum of photon pairs, and related observables, the strong interaction may be indirectly probed.
