CERN releases first images of collisions at 13 TeV

India Blooms News Service | | 21 May 2015, 04:14 pm
London, May 21 (IBNS) The European Organization for Nuclear Research on Thursday said protons collided in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the record-breaking energy of 13 TeV for the first time o Wednesday.

" These test collisions were to set up systems that protect the machine and detectors from particles that stray from the edges of the beam," the CERN said in a statement.

A key part of the process was the set-up of the collimators. These devices which absorb stray particles were adjusted in colliding-beam conditions. This set-up will give the accelerator team the data they need to ensure that the LHC magnets and detectors are fully protected.

"Today the tests continue. Colliding beams will stay in the LHC for several hours. The LHC Operations team will continue to monitor beam quality and optimisation of the set-up," read the statement.

"This is an important part of the process that will allow the experimental teams running the detectors ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb to switch on their experiments fully. Data taking and the start the LHC's second run is planned for early June," it said.
