File:CMS Higgs-event.jpg


English: An example of simulated data modeled for the CMS particle detector on the Large Hadron Collider ( LHC) at CERN. Here, following a collision of two protons, a Higgs boson is produced which decays into two jets of hadrons and two electrons. The lines represent the possible paths of particles produced by the proton-proton collision in the detector while the energy these particles deposit is shown in blue.
Français : Simulation de la desintegration d'un boson de Higgs en 2 rayons de hadrons (centre, 11 heures) et 2 electrons (en bas à gauche, 5 heures) dans le detecteur CMS du LHC au CERN. Les traces denotent les particules qui ont ete produites de la collision d'une paire de protons d'ultra-haute energie. Les energies deposees par les particules dans le detecteur sont montrees en bleu pale.
Deutsch: Simulation des hypothetischen Zerfalls eines Higgs-Teilchens in Teilchen-Jets am CMS/ CERN
Polski: Przykładowa (2008) symulacja zderzenia dwóch protonów kreujących Bozon Higgsa rozpadający się następnie na dwa strumienie hadronów (na godzinie 11 i 13) i dwa elektrony (na godzinie 17) wygenerowana dla detektora CMS Wielkiego Zderzacza Hadronów w ośrodku naukowo-badawczym CERN pod Genewą. Ślady cząstek zarejestrowane przez detektor w wyniku kolizji zaznaczono kolorem niebieskim.
