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 TeV. Currently, and while steadily moving to the last beam dumps for 2016 (Monday 5th), LHC runs with beam reversal mode at the same center-of-mass energy, where the directions of p and Pb bunches are reversed since not all LHC experiments are symmetric.

The Physics Department at UCLouvain has been involved for a number of decades in high energy particle physics research, equally strongly on the experimental and instrumental fronts as on the theoretical one. In spite of being located in physically distinct places, all these activities are now brought together within a common organisational structure, the Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3). This structure reinforces the collaboration of these varied components and competences in the physics of the fundamental interactions and the elementary particles.
