A new year with new energy and new luminosities: 2012 holds the promise to close the question on the existence (or absence) of a Standard Model Higgs boson. Besides the obvious challenges posed by the LHC restart at a higher energy and a much...

As high-energy particle physics pushes exploration at energy and luminosity frontiers, experiments are becoming increasingly complex – and this, in turn, drives the need for developments in particle detectors and their associated technologies....

A search is presented for a massive particle, generically referred to as a Z′, decaying into a t-tbar pair. The search focuses on Z′ resonances that are sufficiently massive to produce highly Lorentz-boosted top quarks, which yield collimated decay...

The production of b jets in association with a Z/γ* boson is studied using proton-proton collisions delivered by the LHC at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV and recorded by the CMS detector. The inclusive production rates for Z/γ* + b-jet is...

CMS has just recorded the first collisions with stable beams at a world-record collision energy of 8 TeV[1]. CMS took good quality data with all sub-detectors working well. The LHC fill lasted for 1h34min and the "pile-up" at the beginning of the...

Results are presented from a search for heavy bottom-like quarks, produced in pairs in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV, undertaken with the CMS experiment at the LHC. The b′ quarks are assumed to decay exclusively to a top quark and a W boson (tW). The...

A study of dijet production in proton-proton collisions was performed at √s = 7 TeV for jets with pT > 35 GeV and |y| < 4.7[1] using data collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2010. Events with at least one pair of jets are denoted as...

Results are presented from a search for new physics in which the final state contains a photon (γ) and missing transverse energy (MET). The data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb−1 (inverse femtobarns) collected in pp collisions at √s...
