A new High-Granularity pre-shower detector for FASER

The ForwArd Search ExpeRiment (FASER) is searching for new light and weakly interacting particles decaying into charged final states at the LHC [1][2]. While the first physics data taking has just started an upgrade is already foreseen to enhance…

FASER Detector Installation

During March the FASER detector was successfully installed into the LHC complex. FASER, a new small LHC experiment, designed to search for light, weakly interacting new particles in the LHC collisions was proposed in 2017, and after review by the…

FASERν: looking for high-energy collider neutrinos

In December 2019 a proposed upgrade of the FASER detector designed to study neutrinos at the LHC was approved by CERN. The new detector called FASERν will be placed in front of the main FASER detector, 480-m in front of the ATLAS collision point,…

FASER joins the exploration for new physics

On March 5th the CERN Research Board approved the ForwArd Search ExpeRiment (FASER), for installation at the LHC during Long Shutdown 2. FASER is an experiment designed to broaden the search for new physics at the LHC, by looking for light, weakly-…

FASER experiment to look for long-lived particles

At its last meeting CERN’s Research Board approved a new experiment that will look for light and weakly interacting long-lived particles at the LHC. The ForwArd Search ExpeRiment (FASER) will search for particles that might be produced parallel to…
