LHC starts the new data taking: a new adventure begins


Protons have started colliding again in the super-accelerator LHC at CERN in Geneva. A new phase of data taking will allow physicists to continue the exploration of the Universe, of the bricks of the matter and of the fundamental laws.

LHC has already shown its big potentialities bringing science to the frontier of knowledge. The measurements foreseen will bring us to a deeper understanding of physics.

INFN and the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati are heavy involved in this adventure, collaborating in the major experiments: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, LHCb with physicists, technicians and students. 

At the LNF each of the four experiments has settled down its own laboratory dedicated to the development of modern detectors, which will be installed at LHC in the next few years. All these efforts have already brought big technological innovations both within the LNF and in the Italian community.
