Latest and greatest from ATLAS and CMS


This week ATLAS and CMS have presented their latest and greatest in results obtained with the 13 TeV data set recorded in 2015. Quite an event with some interesting, though not yet exciting, results. Yet the theory community, or at least parts therein, got a bit crazy about some of the results.

I guess we’ll have to wait for our publication aiming for Moriond 2016 to get to the really interesting stuff ;)
Just kidding … well, the last part is true, we are aiming for first public results in March 2016.

Science Night in Garching

Yesterday, I had yet another great Build Your Own Particle Detector outreach event as part of the Science Night in Garching. With the large Atlas Lego model, a little particle physics exhibition and a great team of students from my group at LMU, we managed to talk to hundreds of visitors. And 36 models entering the BYOPD competition (also for the audience award) is not a bad number either :)

Looking forward to the next one … 25 September 2015 at Balexert in Geneva, Switzerland.
