Final chapter in "Test-beam tales", days 6 and 7, including a small puzzle with a special prize

"Monday, 22 August

"8am: Yet another early morning after a late night. I am getting too old for this (some would disagree with the “getting”). The shifters this morning are the same as those from yesterday morning, who were unfortunate in that there was no beam throughout their shift. They were more fortunate today as the beam was on. But our data acquisition system was not in such good shape. In the middle of the night the system had stopped working. A Windows-based laptop that controls part of the system seemed to have spontaneously rebooted itself!

"A few frantic phone and Skype calls later to one of our experts – who also happens to be responsible this week for the operation of the CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter, and was getting even less sleep than me – and the system was up and running again. A feature of the Windows systems at CERN is that updates to the OS and applications are centrally managed. These updates happen at a “convenient” time – in the middle of the night. Normally OK, but not for a critical PC running a software application in a beam test. We will have to fix this…"

Tales from +CERN's test-beam area: days 2 and 3

"Thursday, 18 August

"9am: We reconvened at the test-beam area. First thing on the agenda was a second visit from the safety service, who wanted to see if we could improve on the grounding of our system – to protect people from any possible chance of electrocution. The risk was already extremely low (and, in any case, people are not permitted near the equipment when it is running) but we still managed to improve things a bit."

The 14th edition of the Festival della Scienza, or “Festival of Science” took place in the Italian city of Genoa from 27 October to 6 November. The event was followed with great interest by the general public, from school children to university students, as well as many individual visitors.

This year’s edition had as many as 280 different events, conducted by nearly 500 young hosts, in 52 different locations, and was visited by over 200,000 guests over the 11 days.

CMS, together with Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), contributed to the Festival with the “Higgs Boson Goose Game”, that was renamed “Gioco dell’Oca delle Particelle” or “Game of the Goose with Particles” for the occasion…

Playing with Protons: Engaging Teachers to Engage K-6 Students with Science, Technology and Innovation

"… Playing with Protons (PwP) is a new science education initiative led by the CMS Experiment that contributes to this effort by encouraging primary school teachers to engage in professional development (PD) opportunities. These are designed specifically to enrich teachers’ pedagogical practice with creative, hands-on methodologies by which K-6 students can, in turn, get engaged effectively with science, technology and innovation."

#playingwithprotons #teachers #CERN #CreationsEU #STEMeducation #primaryschool

More info about PwP at https://www.facebook.com/playingwithprotons
There is widespread consensus among science education researchers that learning science should begin early in every child's schooling. Among many good reasons, one stands out clearly: “Children naturally enjoy observing and thinking about nature”. Several studies have shown that the public also ...

More tales from +CERN's test-beam area: Days 4 and 5

"8am: Another early start – meeting the two physicists and taxiing them to the beam area to be on shift for the next eight hours. Both are at the same institute – NCU Taiwan – but, as is often the case in our field, only one is from Taiwan – the other is from India.

"Things began well: the data taken overnight looked good so we changed back to electrons and started to take data for different energies, to get an understanding of how “linear” our system is: if the electron energy increases by a factor of two, our signal should also increase by a factor of two. We used electrons at 20, 35, 70, 100, 150, 200 and 250 GeV. This is one of the advantages of the CERN test-beam facility compared to other places – this large energy range."

Tales from +CERN's test-beam area, where a new sub-detector's modules are being tested!

#particlephysics #CERN #LHC #CylindricalOnion  
David Barney on Wed, 17/08/2016 - 00:00. Wednesday, 17 August. 5am: I drove my wife and kids to Geneva airport. They are leaving for ten days in the sun, in the knowledge that even if they were not going away, they would see precious little of me for the next week: it is test-beam time at CERN!

Story
Tagline
The Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the LHC
Introduction
CMS stands for Compact Muon Solenoid: compact because it is “small” for its enormous weight, muon for one of the particles it detects, and solenoid for the coil inside its huge superconducting magnet. It is a high-energy physics experiment in Cessy, France, part of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at +CERN.
