CMS pixel upgrade: a truly global endeavor

by Karl Gill, EP-CMX

A new and upgraded pixel detector has just been installed in the heart of CMS in this extended year end technical stop boosting its operational limits. 

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.

ATLAS and CMS physicists win the 2017 Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics. 

Searching for dark energy with particle colliders

by Clare Burrage (University of Nottingham), Panos Charitos (CERN)

A new approach for collider searches of dark energy. A combination of terrestrial and cosmological data can give us a comprehensive picture about one of the biggest mysteries of our Universe. 

Where is Supersymmetry?

by Panos Charitos

The original idea for introducing supersymmetry dates back in the 1960s. In this article we discuss how SUSY has evolved and what have we learned so far from the LHC... 

Playing with Protons is a new science education initiative led by the CMS Experiment that contributes to this effort by encouraging primary school teachers to engage in professional development opportunities, designed to enrich teachers’ pedagogical practice with creative, hands-on methodologies.

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

Interview with Guido Tonelli

by Panos Charitos

Guido Tonelli, former spokesperson of the CMS experiment reflects on the present situation in particle physics and the significance of having a vision for the future.​

The workshop “Charting the Unknown: Interpreting LHC data from the energy frontier” focused on the interpretation of the new data from Run 2 in the context of theories beyond the Standard Model.
