AMVA4NewPhysics legacy in searches for new physics

by Anna Stakia (CMS, CERN)

The MSCA project AMVA4NewPhysics has made important contributions in developing advanced tools and training the next generation of scientists to work with vast amounts of data whether searching for new physics or developing industrial applications.

Precision timing upgrade of the CMS detector

by Joel Butler (Fermilab), Keti Kaadze (Kansas State University), Tommaso Tabarelli (CERN)

A new timing detector for CMS, along with other major upgrades, will extend the detector performance and physics opportunities during the High Luminosity LHC era. 

Re-discovering the Higgs boson in the Cloud

by Clemens Lange (CMS, CERN)

A collaborative effort between the ATLAS and CMS experiments with CERN's IT department enables rediscovering the Higgs boson within minutes using publicly available datasets and new computing tools.  

Exploring the Lifetime Frontier at the LHC and Beyond

by James Beacham (ATLAS Experiment, CERN)

As searches for long-lived particles attract more attention, different exprimental approaches and novel theoretical ideas emerge to guide future searches at the LHC and beyond.


CMS Open data in use

by Kati Lassila-Perini (Helsinki Institute of Physics)

Following the last release of CMS open data in July and five years after the first release, through CERN's Open Data portal, it is time to reflect on the impact that these data have created.


ATLAS and CMS collaborations presented over summer their latest results from Higgs boson decays to second generation fermions with LHC's Run 2 data.

The GEMs of CMS

by Archana Sharma (Project Manager CMS Muon GEM Upgrade, CERN)

CMS experiment plans to upgrade its muon system during LS2 using Gas Electron Multiplies (GEM) technology.

The Higgs boson as a probe for new physics

by Toyoko Orimoto (Northeastern University)

Persistent tensions in the Standard Model of particle physics compel us to seek out new physics at the TeV scale, and the Higgs boson provides us with a potential portal.

CMS Trigger: Lessons from LHC Run 2

by Alex Tapper (Imperial College London)

RPC Trigger CrateThe CMS trigger outperformed during Run 2, efficiently recording data for the CMS versatile physics programme

The CMS beam pipe will be replaced in LS2, with one that will allow the extremities of the future pixel detectors to get even closer to the interaction point.
