CERN hails the late Meenakshi Narain as an "inspirational leader and champion of diversity in CMS and beyond" with PURSUE legacy

Read Article
Starting in 2029, the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) will provide much higher collision intensities to the ATLAS and CMS experiments, with up to 200 concurrent collisions (or pileup) per bunch crossing expected. This will create very complicated collision events with many overlapping tracks. Consequently, the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations are preparing to equip their tracking detectors with high-resolution inner tracking layers based on silicon pixel detectors. These new detectors will measure the inner points of the particle tracks as close as possible to the collision point.
