SLAC research resumes at upgraded Large Hadron Collider

SLAC research resumes at upgraded Large Hadron Collider

Research with the Large Hadron Collider has officially resumed: The world's largest particle accelerator at CERN began on June 3 to collect data at a new record energy that could hold the key to new scientific discoveries. To keep up with the boost in performance, researchers at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have developed new technologies for ATLAS -- one of two experiments involved in the 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson.
