Soon after 2027, the LHC will enter the high luminosity era, known as HL-LHC, during which it is expected to deliver about 20 times more data than delivered up the end of Run 2. In order to achieve such high luminosity, the LHC is going to use much...

*/ The CMS Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) subsytem will form an extra layer of detectors, along with the Cathode Strip Chambers (CSC) layers, closest to the beam. The GEM's ability to cope with a very high particle rate will greatly improve muon...

In February, the CMS and MoEDAL collaborations at CERN signed an agreement to hand over to MoEDAL a section of the LHC beam pipe that was located inside CMS between 2008 and 2013. The delicate object, 6 metres long and made of beryllium, will now be...
