It was built by the European Organization for #Nuclear
Research (CERN) between 1998 to 2008 in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and hundreds of universities and laboratories, as well as more than 100 countries It lies in a tunnel 27 #kilo_metres
(17 mi) in circumference and as deep as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the #FranceSwitzerland
border near Geneva. Its first research took place from March 2010 to early 2013 at an energy of 3.5 to 4 teraelectronvolts (TeV) per beam (7 to 8 TeV total), about four times of the previous world record for a collider and accelerator. Afterwards, the accelerator was taken offline and upgraded over the course of two years. It was restarted in early 2015 for its second research run, reaching 6.5 TeV per beam (13 TeV total, the present world record).
The aim of the LHC is to allow physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics, including #measuringtheproperties
of the Higgs boson and searching for the large family of new particles predicted by #supersymmetric
theories, as well as other unsolved questions of physics.
, around which are positioned seven detectors, each designed for certain kinds of research. The LHC primarily collides #protonbeams
, but it can also use #beamsofheavyions
. Proton–lead collisions were performed for short periods in 2013 and 2016, lead–lead collisions took place in 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2015, and a short run of xenon–xenon collisions took place in 2017.
The LHC's computing grid is a world record holder. #Datafromcollisions
were produced at an #unprecedented
rate for the time of first collisions, tens of petabytes per year, a major challenge at the time, to be analysed by a grid-based #computernetworkinfrastructureconnecting
170 computing centres in 42 countries as of 2017 – by 2012 the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid was also the world's largest #distributed
computing grid, comprising over 170 computing facilities in a worldwide network across 36 countr
