Higgs boson decay model

Higgs boson decay model. Simulated computerdisplay of the decay of a Higgs boson in the CMS(compact muon solenoid) detector at CERN (theEuropean particle physics laboratory) near Geneva, Switzerland. The detector will be placed aroundthe large hadron collider (LHC), CERN's highestenergy particle accelerator. Proton beams will beaccelerated and collided head on in the LHC, andthe CMS will detect the resultant particles. Themain goal of the experiment is the discovery ofthe Higgs boson, an elementary particle predictedby the Standard Model of particle physics, but yetto be directly detected (as of 2006). A pilot runof the LHC is scheduled for summer 2007.

Lead ion collision

Particle tracks from a lead ion collision seen by the CMS (compact muon solenoid) detector at CERN (the European particle physics laboratory) near Geneva, Switzerland. Before the collision the ions had been accelerated by the large hadron collider (LHC). The central tracking chamber (cylindrical) and muon chambers (red rectangles) of the detector are seen end-on in outline. The collision produced a number of unidentified particles (orange) and an upsilon meson. The upsilon meson is not seen, but is revealed through its decay products; a pair of muons (two longest red lines). The green lines show the energy deposited by the muons in the detector's muon chambers. The energies of the unidentified particles are measured by the electrochemical calorimeter (shorter red lines) and the hadron calorimeter (blue).

CERN detector, 1986

CERN detector, 1986. This is the ALEPHdetector at CERN, the European particle physicslaboratory, in Switzerland. This is the timeprojection chamber at the centre of ALEPH, coveredwith coloured film to protect it. The central holeis where particle beams collide. The collisionsform new particles that radiate out into thechamber. The chamber normally contains wires thatspark as the particles ionize the gas inside thechamber. Such experiments reveal the fundamentalstructure of matter. ALEPH was used on the LEP(Large Electron- Positron) collider, which beganoperating in 1989. LEP detectors helped to confirmthe standard model of particle physics. CERN wasfounded in 1954.
