Inside CERN

CERN went from over 9000 people on site every day to around 350. Our colleague Christophe Pires, from the COMPASS group, is one of them, and shares this experience with us.

Updating the research group info on the LIP website

The texts introducing the research groups, competence centers or infrastructures in the LIP website are an important visiting card. They should be concise and understandable by those who visit us. This is particularly important in view of the ongoing evaluation of the research units.

Please remember these texts can be updated directly in the LIP database.

Two questions and answers:

cLIP:   Why are you one of the persons who have to be at CERN now?

Christophe Pires:  I am one of the COMPASS persons who is "always" here. The responsibility of our group is the Detector Control System (DCS), and in addition I help here and there when necessary. During this closing, and any other closing, it is necessary to ensure security and maintenance of the experience, from gas systems to the materials used by the target system. Much of the information for monitoring is available in the DCS, but some of it is not, such as the status of the gas system bubblers. One of my tasks at this point is to go through a checklist, similar to that of shifters during data taking. Regarding the materials of the target system, they are stored in dewars with liquid nitrogen and each week someone has to add more nitrogen. The aim is to keep them at an appropriate temperature, making sure they don't loose their properties, otherwise it will not be possible to take data with them. Other than that, I continue to work on DCS and from time to time in other activities. Taking into account the framework of the urgent activities defined by CERN, we do what is possible to start already recovering some of the delay that the closure of CERN is causing.


cLIP:   What is it like to go to CERN now?

Christophe Pires:  Going to CERN now is different from usual, but somewhat similar to other closing periods (Sundays, holidays, winter shutdown). There's almost no one, neither on the road nor at CERN, and we say "Hello, how are you, etc." keeping distances with the other people who are always here, especially security and cleaning service people. Personally, it seems to me that these two groups must be experiencing great differences and perhaps they should be given more emphasis. I'm usually on the Prévessin site. Here, I noticed that the deers are now feel more at ease inside CERN! On the Meyrin side, I know, for example, that Restaurant No. 1 is still open in a reduced mode, which I assume is useful for people there.

Visits to the CMS Detector at the LHC

Have you ever wondered what High-Energy Physics is? What exactly it takes to run an experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider? Or perhaps how the Higgs boson was discovered?


UPCOMING EVENTS
SEMINARS LHC a0 years of data

10 year of high-energy LHC data 

Ten years have passed since the first high-energy collisions at the LHC, on March 30, 2010. We gather here some memories of that night's atmosphere in the control rooms, lived by LIP colleagues in ATLAS and CMS.
