ALICE experiment

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

New LHC results presented at EPS-HEP 2017

by Panos Charitos

In July, more than 700 physicists gathered in Venice to discuss the latest developments in the field of particle physics at EPS 2017, one of the most important international conferences of the field.

Strangess enhancement observed in proton collisions

by ALICE Collaboration

The ALICE experiment reports first signs for strangeness enhancement in proton collisions 

A wealth of new results from the LHC experiments was presented in the 52 edition of the Moriond conference. 

Wealth of new results in Quark Matter 2017

by Panos Charitos

Last month, the LHC experiment collaborations presented their latest results at the Quark Matter 2017 conference on how matter behaved in the very early moments of the universe.

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. 

Thanks to the outstanding performances of the LHC, the experiments presented a wealth of new results in ICHEP2016.

LHC Restart 2016

by Panos Charitos

Following the 2016 restart of the LHC, we have asked the run coordinators of the four largest LHC experiments — ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb — to share a few words with us about the first data taking. Their broad physics programme will be complemented by the measurements of three smaller experiments (TOTEM, LHCf and MoEDAL) and may hold the key to new physics.

Two of the LHC experiments, ATLAS and ALICE, recently announced winners of the “ATLAS PhD Grant” and “ALICE Thesis Award” schemes. The prizes aim to foster healthy competition between young members of the two collaborators and acknowledge the hard efforts of the winners but also of those who were considered for these awards.

Exit protons, enter ions

by Federico Ronchetti

The 2015 LHC proton run, the first after the long shutdown 1, ended last week with a good performance of the accelerator given the challenges of running at the new collision energy of 13 TeV.
