The Higgs boson is a particle associated with the electroweak-symmetry breaking mechanism that was proposed in the 1960s and is a vital component of the Standard Model of particle physics. It is believed that all fundamental particles in the known…

The LHC began its 2012 run in early April, colliding protons at a world-record centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV[1]. In just over two months, CMS has recorded more data than in the 2011 run. As of the short technical stop starting June 18, the LHC had…

While the LHC will play the starring role in the 2013/2014 Long Shutdown (LS1), the break will also be a chance for its experiments to upgrade their detectors. CMS will be expanding its current muon detection systems, fitting 72 new cathode strip…

The search for microscopic black holes at the LHC is motivated by the hierarchy problem — the huge observed difference between the strengths of the electroweak and gravitational forces. The ADD model (Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos, and Dvali) offers an…

On request of the FSQ PAG a run with very low pile-up (PU = 0.037) was taken for minimum bias and underlying event studies. Trigger information was exchanged between CMS and TOTEM and a common dataset has been obtained.
