Precise timing detectors for the LHC experiments

by Panos Charitos, with contributions from Tommaso Tabarelli de Fatis, Lindsey Gray (CMS) and Ana Maria Henriques Correia, Laurent Serin (ATLAS)

 To meet the physics goals of the HL-LHC physics programme, ATLAS and CMS experiments have submitted proposals for timing detectors that will boost their physics reach.  

Heavy-ion collisions at Quark Matter 2018

by Panagiotis Charitos

CERN experiments present results from the study of lead-lead collisions at Quark Matter 2018.

New season starts for the LHC experiments

by Panos Charitos

Last April, the detectors of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) witnessed their first collisions of 2017 with the machine reaching an outstanding performance. 

As the LHC experiments gather more data physics analysis can benefit from the development of novel machine learning tools. 

A new era for calorimetry?

by David Barney

The design of a new High Granularity Calorimeter (HGCAL) for CMS aims to tackle the challenges of calorimetry at the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC). 

The exploitation of the LHC data is continuing successfully, with a wealth of new results presented at the Moriond 2018 conference,

New paradigms for the CMS Phase-2 Upgrades

by Austin Ball and Didier Claude Contardo (CMS)

CMS upgrade project makes good progress to meet the challenging conditions of HL-LHC.

Searching for leptoquarks at the LHC

by Panos Charitos

A recent “Cross Collider” meeting at CERN showed that the physics of leptoquarks remains a rapidly evolving field on both experimental and theoretical fronts.

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.

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.
