The subdetectors of the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment



A particle detector is an instrument used to carry out accurate measurements of particle collisions

Many particle detectors designed to measure certain types of particles are brought together to form a large system of detectors. Such detectors within the large system are known as subdetectors.

The set of detectors in a Compact Muon Solenoid is given below:

The first set of subdetectors are made of the silicon tracking system. It's used to measure the momentum of charged particles like electrons and protons. They achieve this by producing small electric signals with the movement of charged particles near the detector elements.

The 2nd set of subdetectors consists of the electromagneticcalorimeter. It's made of clear lead-based materials...
