LHCb Experiment

Researchers at the big experiments (CMS, ATLAS, ALICE and LHCb) at the largest particle accelerator of the world (LHC) at CERN investigate the building blocks of the universe and the fundamental forces but also search for the unknown.

In March 2021, indications for something new was found at the LHCb experiment: some particles do not quite behave as expected.

Learn why researchers expect to find new particles or forces and how they search for it with the big detectors at CERN and how these detectors work. With the help of a 1:10 scale model of one of the LHC detectors (CMS detector) you can interactively find out how researchers of the UZH, and from all over the world, detect different elementary particles.
