— Can machine learning assist high-energy physics in discovering and characterising new particles?
— The LHC operators hope to break last year’s record for total proton-proton collisions delivered to the experiments
— The Large Hadron Collider has initiated the collision of proton beams for the first time this year
— Protons have been circulating in the Large Hadron Collider since Friday 30 March, marking the start of the machine’s seventh year of operation
— As CERN’s winter shutdown draws to a close, watch this video to see what has been going on underground
— CERN celebrates 25 years since the beginning of the LHC experimental programme
— Before the LHC was shut down for the winter, the operators tested techniques under development for its successor, the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC)
— The LHC’s 2017 proton run has ended with record luminosity. The special runs will now take place before the winter shutdown.
— With 19 days still to go, the LHC has reached its 2017 production target, delivering more than 45 inverse femtobarns to the experiments
— The LHC is operating for several hours with the nuclei of xenon atoms
— CMS experiment delves into the mystery of neutrino masses
— An animation made with TED-ED to explore empty space and why it is important for experiments at CERN
— The Large Hadron Collider has established a new record of luminosity, delivering a huge amount of data to its experiments
— The LHC has been accelerating more and more protons, and to allow the machine to reach its maximum intensity, it will undergo a thorough scrubbing.
— Data-taking has started again at the LHC: the experiments are continuing their exploration of physics at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV.
— Adjustments to the thousands of pieces of equipment making up the LHC are ongoing before data taking can start for 2017
— For the first time this year, the LHC is circulating beams of protons, following a 17-week-long extended technical stop
— We meet Rende Steerenberg, who is the group leader for the accelerator and technical teams
— See in images how the “heart” of the CMS detector, its Pixel Tracker, was replaced
— The Train Inspection Monorail (TIM) is equipped with a camera and several measurement sensors to monitor the LHC tunnel in real-time
