The CMS Experiment at CERN

The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment is one of two general purpose detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (the other being ATLAS). Picture at right summarizes the main components of the CMS detector.  The High Energy Group at the University of Florida is heavily involved in the CMS program. Professor Mitselmakher is the overall project manager for the endcap muon detection system of CMS, coordinating the activities of about 80 U.S. physicists. Professor Korytov is responsible for managing the development and production of the 468 Cathode Strip Chambers that will be built within this project, and Professor Acosta is responsible for the design and construction of a track-finder trigger for this system. Professors Field and Ramond are involved in the development of the CMS physics program.
