CERN Accelerating science

Dear Colleagues, dear Members of the EP Department, dear CERN Users,

Welcome to the 4th and last edition of the EP Newsletter for this year...

 

Physics at 100 TeV

by Panos Charitos

A report discussing the opportunities for physics discoveries with a future 100 TeV hadron circular collider was presented earlier this summer...

End of year news from EP-SFT

by P.Mato, J. Harvery, D. Piparo, G. Cosmo, G.Ganis, S. Gleyzer, W. Pokorski

The end of year is traditionally the time when SFT makes new releases of our main software products. This article presents an overview of the ongoing activities.

LHC community prepares the High Luminosity Upgrades

by D. Contardo, K. Einsweiler

The 3rd ECFA High-Luminosity LHC Experiments workshop in October was a new opportunity for the LHC community to address widely the preparation of the entire program.

A new experiment searching for dark matter at CERN

by Stefania Pandolfi

The NA64 experiment started operations at CERN’s North Area earlier this year hunting the hypothetical dark photon

The ELENA project

by Walter Oelert, Francois Butin, Horst Breuker for the ELENA Project Team

ELENA the new antiproton decelerating ring show the first beams of particles circulating on 18 November. 

An amazing year for the DT group

by Mar Capeans Carrido

2016 has been a great year for the DT group, tjhat provides centralized resources and expertise in terms of personnel and facilities, for the development of future detector technologies and for contributing to detector construction projects.

The workshop “Charting the Unknown: Interpreting LHC data from the energy frontier” focused on the interpretation of the new data from Run 2 in the context of theories beyond the Standard Model.

The NA61/SHINE experiment approved in 2008 allows for precise measurements of properties of particles, produced in collisions of hadrons and atomic nuclei.

LHCb searches for CP violation

by Monica Pepe Altarelli

LΗCb has been performing many accurate measurements of CP-violating asymmetries in processes involving beauty- and charm-hadron decays to determine whether they are consistent with the CKM mechanism or whether new physics should be invoked to explain them.

On 28th September, the ISOLDE Collaboration celebrated the completion of stage 1 of the HIE-ISOLDE project, which opens up new physics opportunities for radioactive ion beam experiments at CERN.

The period of the year when ALICE plays the leading role at LHC has finally arrived: after smashing protons for months, the LHC accelerated lead ions on November 7th and continued until the winter shut-down.

Become a Higgs Hunter

by Katarina Anthony,

The HiggsHunters is the first mass-participation citizen science project for the Large Hadron Collider and has recently released its first paper.

ATLAS releases first measurement of the W mass using LHC data.

Where is Supersymmetry?

by Panos Charitos

The original idea for introducing supersymmetry dates back in the 1960s. In this article we discuss how SUSY has evolved and what have we learned so far from the LHC...
