New LHC detector technology: Engineering the ATLAS IBL

Scientists and engineers installed a new component in the core of the ATLAS detector--one of two general-purpose detectors at the Large Hadron Collider. This new component, called the Insertable B-Layer, sits merely centimeters from the beamline and will allow ATLAS physicists to enhance their search for new physics and phenomenon.

The US contribution to this project was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and supported by the US Department of Energy.
