ATLAS Experiment

Shared publicly  - 
Start up of the world's largest science experiment is underway—with protons traveling in opposite directions at almost the speed of light in the deep underground tunnel called the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva.

Splashes for Synchronization

http://atlas.ch/news/2015/splashes-for-synchronization.html

ATLAS uses "beam splash" events to provide simultaneous signals to large parts of the detector, and verify that the readout of different detectors elements are fully synchronized. After the first 2015 Large Hadron Collider beam circulation on Easter Sunday, a run dedicated to taking beam splash events was set up on Tuesday evening, 7 April. The resulting beam splash events shown in these images demonstrate the resulting energy deposition in ATLAS...

The first long shutdown of the Large Hadron Collider has now ended, after two years of intense but careful activity refurbishing and improving many aspects of ATLAS, mirroring the work to prepare the LHC for collisions at the new energy of 13 TeV. Many dedicated people in ATLAS have worked tirelessly to install a new innermost layer deep inside the experiment, and to make many other important improvements which will enhance the capabilities of th...

[New blog post]: From ATLAS around the world: Preparing for Run 2 from Colombia

http://atlas.ch/blog/?p=2530

I work at Universidad Antonio Nariño in Bogota, and I have been part of the ATLAS experiment since 2010. After a two-year stay at CERN, I moved back to Colombia in 2012 and since then, I have continued to do my work on ATLAS from here. Being involved in ATLAS and working from Colombia has been a great experience for me; I get to continue contributing to the physics searches I am involved in at ATLAS, and also do other things like teaching, giving seminars, and doing outreach activities...

Lucky are you! I like to work there and take part in this scientific masterpiece. It's satisfying me. It's like dream for me to be there. Best wishes for you and your colleagues.

What would the LHC sound like if it was a heavy metal band?

Virtual Special Issue on LHC results - +Elsevier

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been the dream come true of a generation of particle physicists. The first feasibility studies for a CERN hadron collider that could fully explore the multi-TeV energy domain started in the early 1980s...

Follow ATLAS experiment physicist Claire Lee in a new video released by +CERN and see what's next for the Higgs Boson when the LHC begins collisions at the higher energy of ‪#13TeV‬.

First successful beam at record energy of 6.5 TeV - +CERN 

http://home.web.cern.ch/about/updates/2015/04/first-successful-beam-record-energy-65-tev

[On April 9] the Operations team for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) successfully circulated a beam at 6.5 teralectronvolts (TeV) - one of many steps before the accelerator will deliver collisions at four interaction points within the ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb detectors.

Update (Apr 12): This has now been achieved by beams circulated in both directions, another important step toward collisions.

Introduction
ATLAS is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The ATLAS detector is searching for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy. ATLAS will learn about the basic forces that have shaped our Universe since the beginning of time and that will determine its fate. Among the possible unknowns are the origin of mass, extra dimensions of space, unification of fundamental forces, and evidence for dark matter candidates in the Universe.
