LHC Experiments


ATLAS: A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS
ATLAS is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN that is searching for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy.



CMS: Compact Muon Solenoid
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment is one of two large general-purpose particle physics detectors built on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland and France.



LHCb: Large Hadron Collider beauty
Is one of seven particle physics detector experiments collecting data at the Large Hadron Collider accelerator at CERN.



RD50: Radiation hard semiconductor devices for very high luminosity colliders
The main purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between RD(50)s and human sensory irritation responses in a quantitative manner, particularly for chemicals that produce burning sensation of the eyes, nose, or throat, based on lowest observed adverse effect levels (LOAELs) reported for human subjects.


RD53: Development of pixel readout integrated circuits for extreme rate and radiation
RD-53 will develop the tools and designs needed to produce the next generation of pixel readout chips needed by ATLAS and CMS at the HL-LHC. There is also interest and participation by CLIC. More details can be found in the collaboration proposal.


RD51: Development of Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors Technologies
The main objective of the R&D programme is to advance technological development and application of Micropattern Gas Detectors.


Accelerator Projects

CLIC:Compact Linear Collider
CLIC is a study for a future electron-positron collider that allows physicists to explore a new energy region in the multi TeV range beyond the capabilities of today's particle accelerators. It would provide significant fundamental physics information complementary to the LHC and a lower-energy linear e+/e- collider, as a result of its unique combination of high energy and experimental precision.
FCC : Future Circular Collider
The Future Circular Collider (FCC) design study explores options for accelerator projects in a global context, with emphasis on proton-proton and electron-positron high-energy frontier machines. These design studies are coupled to a vigorous accelerator R&D programme, including high-field magnets and high-gradient accelerating structures, in collaboration with national institutes, laboratories and universities worldwide.
ILCInternational Linear Collider
The International Linear Collider will give physicists a new cosmic doorway to explore energy regimes beyond the reach of today's accelerators. The proposed electron-positron collider will complement the LHC. In 2013, the International Linear Collider and the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) merge to form one Linear Collider Collaboration.
