CERN Accelerating science

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

Welcome to the autumn edition of the newsletter of the EP department. The EP newsletter is meant to inform all members of the department about what is going on in EP, and to showcase some of the highlights of our work. 

New ALICE results presented at the 17th edition of the International Conference on Strangeness in Quark Matter (SQM) in Utrecht in July.

Summer Students 2017: looking back to a unique summer experience

by Panos Charitos, Virginia Greco

Five of this year's Students share their stories of exploring physics, finding inspiration and friendship during a summer at CERN.

Although the energy scale of New Physics might lie beyond current experiments' reach, the study of W and Z bosons and photons, through their self-interactions, can reveal hints of new physics at LHC energies and offer useful lessons for future high-energy colliders.

A possible future collider such as the ILC, CLIC or FCC-ee would enable a unique top physics program far beyond the capabilities of the HL-LHC.

Colliding photons at the LHC!

Image result for Colliding photons at the LHCLHC is the world’s most powerful collider not only for protons and lead ions but also for photon–photon allowing physicists to study this topic.
