As the giant physics machine restarts, the essential role of UW in the LHC continues

UW-Madison has dozens of scientists — including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows — involved in the experiments, analysis, data handling and computation at the Large Hadron Collider. Research has resumed at the 27-mile tunnel on the Swiss-French border after two years spent raising its power.  Pictured is Wesley Smith with a special-purpose data winnowing board built for the new, high-power runs at the Large Hadron Collider.  Photo credit: David Tenenbaum, UW-Madison.
