First Run 2 Results to be Presented at EPS
For the past six weeks, the ATLAS experiment has been recording physics data from 13 TeV proton collisions. In this short time, they have recorded over 7,280 billion collisions – twice the amount recorded in 2010. Detector teams have been calibrating and aligning ATLAS' various detectors at a remarkable speed. This effort allows ATLAS physicists to exploit the many upgrades made to the detector during Long Shutdown 1.
CERN will be back at the Montreux Jazz Festival for its third annual workshop: ‘The Physics of Music and The Music of Physics’ on 9 July at 15:00 in Petit Palais. Live events from the ATLAS experiment mapped into music will feature as part of the event.
ATLAS Awards Long Shutdown 1 Achievements
The ATLAS Outstanding Achievement Awards 2015 were presented on 18 June to 26 physicists and engineers, in 11 groups, for their excellent work carried out during Long Shutdown 1 (LS1).
