LS1 Upgrade of the ATLAS Level-1 Central Trigger Processor

by Thilo Pauly on behalf of the ATLAS Level-1 Central Trigger Team

Thilo Pauly reviews an important upgrade of the ATLAS CTP that included the redesign and rebuilding of its electronic components. 

In the previous issue of the PH Newsletter, we introduced the Run Coordinators of CMS, LHCf, and ALICE. This time, we will get to know the Run Coordinators of ATLAS, TOTEM, and LHCb, who talk about their work and the challenges that they have to face.

ATLAS: Preparing for LHC Run2

by Beniamino Di Girolamo, Technical Coordinator of the ATLAS Collaboration

The ATLAS teams are wrapping things up and prepare for Run 2, as Long Shutdown 1 is coming to an end. The collaboration has made major upgrades to increase the efficiency, safety, and environmental impact of the detector; 2014 was a really busy year.

ATLAS Technical Coordinator discusses some of the important operations and improvements that were completed in 2013.

Entretien avec Peter Jenni

by Panos Charitos

Peter Jenni a commencé très jeune à s’intéresser à la physique. Il avait toujours aimé lire des textes de vulgarisation sur le sujet, même s’il n’avait pas été très motivé par son professeur de physique du secondaire. Il lui sembla naturel d'opter pour des études de physique, en se concentrant sur la physique expérimentale ainsi que l'astronomie et les mathématiques. Il devait obtenir ainsi une licence à l’Université de Berne, avant d'entreprendre un doctorat à l'École polytechnique fédérale de Zurich.
