U.S. CMS Upgrades for the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider

Project: Research project

Project Details


The CMS experiment is one of the two general purpose detectors at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC will be upgraded to provide the capability of delivering an order of magnitude more proton-proton collisions. To cope with this much higher rate of collisions the CMS experiment also requires upgrades. The NSF plans to support these upgrades through an MREFC (Major Research Equipment and Facility Construction) grant. This proposal is seeking the support for these upgrades. It covers HL-LHC CMS Detector Upgrade Project activities for the expected period of the construction project from April 1, 2020 to March 30, 2026
