Tech transfer from linear collider to LHC detector

| 19 February 2015 The CMS detector at CERN's Large Hadron Collider is very much a detector at work. It co-found the Higgs particle in 2012 and, although still in Lang-Shutdown-1 mode, it's ready for the second LHC run. In it: a piece of linear collider technology. Stay tuned for the whole story in a future issue of LC NewsLine. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , ,


| 10 October 2013 The Nobel Prize in Physics this year has gone to François Englert and Peter Higgs for their theoretical discovery of the Higgs mechanism, recently confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's LHC. The linear collider community, represented by Deputy LCC Director Hitoshi Murayama, congratulates the two theorists on this appropriate award for the monumental work.

2013 Nobel Prize in Physics announcement

10 October 2013 The Nobel Prize in Physics 2013 was awarded jointly to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs "for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider" Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , , , ,

A small part of the team that made it all happen

Image: CERN | 5 July 2012 Surrounded by cameras and showing a variety of emotions – delighted, touched, excited, shy, proud, almost overwhelmed – the central theorists, CERN management and the spokespeople of the experiments get together for a group picture after yesterday's press conference. Front row, left to right: theorist Francois Englert, theorist Peter Higgs, ATLAS spokeswoman Fabiola Gianotti, CERN director Steve Myers. Back row, left to right: CERN director Sergio Bertolucci, CERN DG Rolf Heuer, CMS spokesman Joe Incandela, theorist Carl Hagen, theorist Gerald Guralnik. Missing in the picture: Robert Brout and Tom Kibble and the rest of the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , ,

From CERN: ATLAS and CMS experiments present Higgs search status

From symmetry breaking: Higgs buzz at summer physics conference

28 July 2011 Physicists could be on their way to discovering the Higgs boson, if it exists, by next year. Scientists in two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider pleasantly surprised attendees at the European Physical Society conference this afternoon by both showing small hints of what could be the prized particle in the same area.

Lesson-Learning from CMS

| 13 September 2007 Alain Hervé already has the experience of building two enormous detectors under his belt, and it looks like he is going to help in a third one. Technical coordinator at CERN of both L3 at LEP and CMS at the LHC, the Breton has now been called as an expert to help in the interaction region design, cavern and detector assembly planning for the ILC and its detectors. He is taking part in preparatory phone conferences for the IRENG workshop and co-convenes Work Group A that looks at how to design, install and open experiments.
