UCSB Physicists are working to make major upgrades to the Compact Muon Solenoid detector at the Large Hadron Collider

By 2025, the scientists and engineers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) hope to be able to conduct the most powerful, highest energy experiments fathomable today. Proton beams fired at each other will collide at just under the speed of light, throwing countless particles into extremely sensitive detectors. All in an effort to discover the underlying structure of the universe...

Among the upgrades to the Compact Muon Solenoid detector is an additional muon detecting layer and improved electronics for the muon systems
