CMS observes top quarks in proton-nucleus collisions !

On Monday, 18th of September, at the 10th International Workshop on Top Quark Physics, TOP 2017, in Braga, Portugal, the CMS experiment reported the first observation of the top pair (tt) production using proton-nucleus collisions at 8.16 TeV center-of-mass (c.o.m) energy. The excess of events with respect to the background-only hypothesis corresponds to a significance of more than 5σ (the...

Tracing the path from Tevatron to LHC

On Tuesday, 4th of April, at the 25th DIS international workshop in Birmingham, UK, the CMS experiment extended the very first cross section measurement of the top pair (tt) production at 5.02 TeV center-of-mass (c.o.m) energy. The measurement tracks the evolution of the tt cross section as a...

Hot off the press: Top quarks in nuclear collisions ?

Earlier today, at the 128th LHCC Open session meeting, both ATLAS and CMS experiments demonstrated for the first time candidate events whose signatures are compatible with the decay of a pair of top quarks in the nuclear environment of proton-Lead (pPb) collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8.16...
