LHC (Large Hadron Collider)
   

  • The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Geneva is the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator till date. 
  • The LHC consists of a 27 kilometre (circumference) ring of superconducting magnets with a number of accelerating structures to boost the energy of the particles along the way. 
  • The LHC tunnel is about 100 metres beneath the border of Switzerland and France. 
  • Inside the accelerator, two high-energy particle beams travel at close to the speed of light before they are made to collide. 
  • The beams cross paths in four locations along the accelerator ring where the sophisticated detectors are placed to record the particles coming out of the collision.
  • The energy of the collision can be converted into mass, creating new massive particles which being unstable quickly decay into less massive particles, leaving behind a whole zoo of particles for scientists to study.

 

OUR PARTICIPATION 

  • This is the first and only college in INDIA to participate in this international experiment. 
  • Support for R&D by Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and Department of Science & Technology (DST), Govt. of India under India - CMS Collaboration. 
  • Students of this college will be participating in physics analyses like search for new particles, Supersymmetry, Dark Matter, detector R&D and fabrication. 
  • Students will also get a rare opportunity to visit and work at the experimental site at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland.
