New result on BR(K^+ \to \pi^+ \nu \bar{\nu}) from NA62...

A way to investigate the presence of new physics at very high energy, not accessible to LHC, is searching for deviations from the SM of quantities predicted very precisely within the SM, even at small energies. One of these quantities is how often a charged Kaon decays to a charged pion and a...

CMS technology used to develop a new portable muon...

Suppose that you need to see what is inside a small room that is difficult to access. Thick walls between you and the object of your investigation; you cannot dig, and the closest that you can get to the target is inside a narrow tunnel, with no electricity to power your instrumentation....

Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

An observation made by the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, published in the Physical Review Letters today, connects for the first time the two heaviest elementary particles of the Standard Model. Members of the CMS collaboration, including the Excellence of...

NA62: First results on $K^+\to \pi^+ \nu\bar{\nu}$.

On Sunday 11th of March, NA62 collaboration presented in Moriond the first results of the $K^+\to \pi^+ \nu\bar{\nu}$  analysis. This channel has a branching ratio in the SM of (8.4 ±1.0) × 10-11. The analysis presented in Moriond is based in the study of a sample of 1.21×...
