When the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Europe’s center for high energy physics, begins colliding particles in 2008 it will provide proton collisions for four large physics experiments that will expand our understanding of the workings of the universe.

The ATLAS and CMS collaborations designed multi-purpose detectors; these will hunt for the Higgs boson, traces of supersymmetry and evidence of extra dimensions, among other things.

ALICE aims to study the quark-gluon plasma, a new phase of matter expected at extreme energy densities.

LHCb will examine beauty quark physics.

Photos of the people, equipment and recent activities of the LHC experiments are posted on the CERN Document Server.
