About Us

star

High Energy Physics Laboratory started under the name of “High energy and cosmic rays” in 1956 when Bulgaria was one of the founding states of the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research, established in Dubna, USSR.
The main topics of our activity are: high energy particle physics with accelerators, physics beyond the Standard Model, search for supersimetry, Higgs particle, discoveries of new states of matter (quark-gluon plasma), searching for new particles and resonances and investigation of their properties and interractions.
We work in the framework of scientific plan of Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear energy, approved by Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Participation of our Laboratory in the scientific programme of CERN, corresponds to integration of Bulgarian scientists into the European research area, as stated in the “Encouragement of Scientific Studies Low” (article 1, part 4, paragraph 3, published in Government newspaper 92/17.10.2003) and it is fully synchronized with basic guidelines of the “National Strategy for Scientific Research” project of Ministry of Education and Science of R Bulgaria.
In the “High energy physics” Laboratory there is 13 staff members - 3 Associate Professors, PhD, 3 Research Scientists PhD, 4 Research Scientists, 1 Engeneer, 2 IT experts. 2 PhD students are involved in the CMS activity of the Laboratory.
Formal and informal bilateral and multilateral co-operation and relations with other research establishments:
• Within the Academy our Laboratory is co-operating with “Nuclear Electronics” Laboratory of INRNE.
• At national level we have a bi-literal co-operation agreement with University of Plovdiv and Sofia University “St.Kliment Ohridski”. Our industrial partners are “Nonferrous Metal Company”, Gara Iskar, Sofia and “Stelmed” CA, Sofia, company for production of aluminium profiles.
• In 1993 Physicists and engineers from “High Energy Physics” Laboratory started work at CERN in the CMS project for experiment at LHC. They were involved in CMS Hadron Calorimeter simulation and beam testing, as well as in the preproduction of the brass plates of about 700 tons for the calorimeter.
• Our participation in CERN activities got à boost in the year 1999, when Bulgaria became the 20th member-state of the Organisation. Since then Bulgaria has joined efforts with the other European countries in building the new powerful accelerator - the Large Hadron Collider LHC and the CMS detector. According to the “Memorandum of Understanding for the Construction for the CMS Detector” signed between Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science and CERN, 125 RPC RPC chambers were assembled and tested in the “High Energy Physics” Laboratory at INRNE and integrated into the CMS detector. The successful fulfillment of our obligation for production of equipment for the CMS experiment at CERN is performed under cooperation agreements of our Laboratory with FERMILAB (USA), JINR (Dubna, Russia), INFN (Bari, Italy) and CERN (Switzerland) during the period 2002-2008.
• From the beginning of the work on CMS our physicists were taking part in the installation and commissioning of the RPC chambers at CMS, generation and reconstruction of large Monte Carlo data samples for CMS, calibration and validation of the Monte-Carlo simulation and data analysis of the test beam data of the Hadron calorimeter. In the beginning of 2005 in INRNE a GRID-cluster (Tier-3 status ) for work in LCG: ce1.inrne.bas.bg was commissioned and officially certified.
• After LHC starts operation in the 2009-2012 at the beginning the processing of several hundred millions events, registered by the CMS detector, produced by cosmic muon rays at the magnet test and cosmic challenge and cosmic test at four Tesla is completed. This provided opportunity to test the integration of major components of the experiment before lowering them into the underground experimental cavern and important commissioning and operational experience.
• Several million real physical events have been collected at beam energy in the system of center of mass (SCM) 0.9 TeV and 2.36 TeV in successful operation of the LHC collider at the end of 2009 in the CMS detector. The available statistics was good enough for extracting of parameters of the all subdetectors of the CMS and provides his calibration in the real working conditions. Thus the comparison with the test beam data and Monte Carlo data, earlier obtained, shows that the CMS subdetectors overfill project technical specifications such as efficiency, spatial resolution and trigger synchronization.
• In this period we were working on collecting of data and processing of registered events for obtaining of experimental results as well as in the working group DQM (Data Quality Monitoring) of the CMS detector and his maintenance.
More important scientific achievements: The CMS experiment is one of the two experiments proposed to operate in the collider LHC, built at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. The main results of the work on the CMS project, carried out in the Institute of Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences are as follows:
• 125 RB3 Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) for the experiment CMS were produced and tested in INRNE. This way we have fulfilled our obligation for production of RPC chambers for the CMS. The parameters of the chambers, determined in cosmic ray muon tests, are within the technical specifications for this type of detectors. Required infrastructure for assembly and test with cosmic muons of the Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) has been established at INRNE, Sofia. The assembly table, test facility and gas system have been installed. The members of the “High Energy Physics” Laboratory were awarded with the “Best experimental investigations in INRNE, BAS” award for the year 2005.
• The chambers were shipped to CERN, Switzerland and our specialists took part in the final installation of the last RPC chambers in the CMS detector. All 480 RPC’s constituting the barrel muon trigger system are already installed and functional tests in situ have been performed. Runs using cosmic muons were carried out in order to check the full data flow chain. These runs achieved the goal of accumulating 300 million cosmic triggers with full magnetic field. After complete installation and commissioning, the detector was closed in time for the first ever LHC beam on 10 September.
• Members of our group, working at FNAL, USA, took part in the work on the calibration of the CMS Hadron Calorimeter and test beam data analysis. They participated also in the activities of “Computing Software and Analysis Challenge 2007”.
• A technical facility based on Grid technology is developed to support CMS distributed analysis. The GRID-cluster in INRNE was permanently operational during 2007-2008 and available for LCG (LHC Computing Grid) work. The grid-specific software was regularly upgraded to meet the LHC requirements. Our specialists contributed to the development at CERN of software for automated installation and configuration of the grid middleware Glite 3.1.
• The latest releases of the CMS software system, CMSSW, are routinely installed in INRNE CMS-computing framework. Monte Carlo studies of Higgs boson production in dijet spectrum of black hole decays at CMS is carried out. Validation of the Monte-Carlo simulation of CMS was performed.
• The physical measurements begun in the period of testing of CMS detector with cosmic rays and continued with collision of two proton beams at beam energy in the system of center of mass (SCM) 0.9, 2.36 and 7 TeV in the CMS detector. For a short period results obtained from the CMS, revised all physics of elementary particles. The masses, branching ratio and cross section of already known particles have been measured and improved results, obtained the last 50 years;
• In the period January – December 2011 High energy Physics Laboratory at INRNE continued his active participation in collecting of data, processing and analysis of registered events for obtaining of experimental results as well as in the working group DQM (Data Quality Monitoring) of the CMS detector dnd his maintenance; LHC collider was work in stable regim with increasing luminosity and at 22 April 2011 set a new world record for beam intensity at a hadron collider when it collided beams with a luminosity of 4.67 x 1032cm-2s-1. This exceeds the previous world record of 4.024 x 1032cm-2s-1, set at the Tevatron collider in 2010. To the end of the year 2011 the collider worked at luminosity 3.54 x 1033cm-2s-1. The collected statistics of 5.2 fb-1 at 91% efficiency have been processed and results are published in several international scientific journals
• The precise measurements for general confirmation of the Standard model have been done. The first results for the seraching of Higgs - bosons and for the testing of new theory for physics beyond Standard model have been obtained. Strategy and policies for future development for High Energy Physics Laboratory: The CMS experiment will operate at the most powerful proton-proton collider LHC at CERN. The principal scientific mission of CMS is to reveal the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking responsible for generation of the masses of the particles, which could eventually lead to discovery of a new heavy fundamental particle - the Higgs boson. Also a search will be carried out for manifestations of new physics, such as the “supersymmetry”, which is related to the existence of a set of new particles – partners of the already known ones. Apart from searches for new physics phenomena, the scientific programme of CMS includes various precision measurements in the framework of the Standard Model - the theory, which at present provides the most accurate description of the elementary particles and their interactions.
• After the successful fulfillment of our responsibilities for hardware contribution to the CMS detector, which involved production of RPC-chambers our future work will be oriented to participation in the running of the detector subsystems, data taking and data analysis. Our joint group from the INRNE, BAS and the Plovdiv University envisage to take part in the investigations to register the Higgs boson and in the studies of production of pairs top quark-antiquark.
• The processing of the data from the CMS experiment will extensively rely on using GRID-technologies. To this end, we will develop and extend our GRID-infrastructure. We also plan the equipment in INRNE, used for functional tests of the RPC-chambers during the production phase, to be used to investigate the long-term stability of RPC operation. We will participate in the maintenance of the detector and electronics equipment at LHC at CERN, contributed by INRNE, BAS to CMS.
In 2013 LHC will be upgraded in order to reach luminosity an order of magnitude higher than nominal. We are planning to participate in the R&D of new detectors able to sustain the SLHC environment.
The new agreement between Bulgaria and CERN - “Memorandum of Understanding for Maintenance and Operation of the CMS Detector” (MoU_for_M&O), signed in 2008 (decision 20/22.05.2008 of session of Ministry Council of R Bulgaria), provides the framework for further participation of Bulgarian groups in the CMS research activities. In accordance with the MoU for M&O, the Bulgarian groups are responsible for the maintenance of the detector and electronics equipment contributed by Bulgaria to CMS.
