Two experimental collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider, located at CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland, announced today that they have significantly narrowed the mass region in which the Higgs boson could be hiding.

The U.S. Department of Energy has named the U.S. Compact Muon Solenoid detector project as a recipient of the DOE Secretary’s Award for Achievement. DOE presents the awards to management teams that demonstrate significant results in completing projects within cost and schedule.

An international collaboration of scientists today sent the first beam of protons zooming at nearly the speed of light around the world’s most powerful particle accelerator-the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) located at the CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland

Batavia, Ill. – Early yesterday morning (Jan. 22), scientists of the U.S. CMS collaboration joined colleagues around the world to celebrate the lowering of the final piece of the Compact Muon Solenoid detector into the underground collision hall at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. The near completion of the CMS detector marks a pivotal moment for the international experiment, in preparation for the start-up of the Large Hadron Collider this summer. CMS has approximately 2,300 international collaborators. Supported by the Department…
