First Collisions at 13,6 TeV at LHC

Ten year after the Higgs boson discovery* and after 3 ½ years of shutdown the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN restart!
July 5th at 16h47 the LHC delivered first proton -proton collisions at 13.6 TeV to the 4 experiments: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, LHCB

ALICE experiment started its physics program with new detectors installed during shutdown, in particular the Muon Forward Tracker (MFT) for which the SUBATECH ALICE group had a major contribution. A new readout electronics, in order to support a greater luminosity, and a new reconstruction and analysis software will allow to study these collisions and continue the study of the fundamental properties of the universe.
