At a seminar held at CERN today the ATLAS and CMS experiments presented their latest preliminary results in the search for the Higgs particle. Both experiments observe a new particle in the mass region around 125-126 GeV. “It’s hard not to get excited by these results,” said CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci. “ We stated last year that in 2012 we would either find a new Higgs-like particle or exclude the existence of the Standard Model Higgs. With all the necessary caution, it looks to me that we are at a branching point: the observation of this new particle indicates the path for the future towards a more detailed understanding of what we’re seeing in the data.” The results presented today are labeled preliminary. They are based on data collected in 2011 and 2012, with the 2012 data still under analysis. Publication of the analyses shown today is expected around the end of July. A more complete picture of today’s observations will emerge later this year after the LHC provides the experiments with more data. The next step will be to determine the precise nature of the particle and its significance for our understanding of the universe. GCCEC participated in ATLAS detector construction works starting from 2005. GCCEC built entire computing model of ATLAS on the base of CATIA V5 platform; participated in integration conflicts checking and ATLAS installation modeling activities http://www.cadcamge.ch/projects/cern_project_1_main.htm GCCEC was responsible for the calculations of lifting path of the heaviest parts of ATLAS detector – End-CAP Toroids in two symmetrical sides of detector http://www.cadcamge.ch/projects/cern_project_3_main.htm
