Observe the #HiggsBoson with over #1petabyte of particle-physics #OpenData, now available on the #cernopendata portal: https://cms.cern/news/observing-higgs-over-one-petabyte-new-cms-open-data

These high-level #LHC data were recorded by CMS in 2012.

"Chris Henschke is an artist who works with digital and analogue media, sound and light, and high-energy physics. He has just completed a Doctorate of Philosophy at Monash University, which includes on-site work at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Switzerland, as part of the ‘art@CMS’ collaboration. This research into how we use technology to interact with the subatomic universe culminated in his particle accelerator installation ‘Song of the Phenomena’, which showed at |not|fair| in November."

We've published our 700th research paper!

It has been a little over seven (and a half) years since the LHC started delivering collision data to CMS for physics analysis, and just a few days ago we published our 700th research paper. To celebrate this achievement, we thought we would give you a glimpse of seven of several milestone papers CMS has published over the years. Of course, choosing any such list is inherently difficult and we have to leave out many other deserving papers in the process. But we hope the ones shown below give you a flavour of the breadth of the CMS research programme and the many contributions to this endeavour from our collaborators all over the globe. Here’s to (at least) 700 more papers that push the boundaries of our knowledge of the universe.

More photos from the XeXe collisions of last night!

One of the first-ever xenon-xenon collision events recorded by CMS during the LHC’s one-day-only heavy-ion run with xenon nuclei. The large number of tracks emerging from the centre of the detector show the many simultaneous nucleon-nucleon interactions that take place when two xenon nuclei, each with 54 protons and 75 neutrons, collide inside CMS.

#KnowledgeTransfer: The CRISTAL database

Software developed initially for keeping track of CMS crystals is being used today in a variety of fields, from Alzheimer’s research to business process management.
