First 900 GeV Collision Events in Stable-Beam Conditions with Inner Detector Fully Powered, December 6, 2009

On Sunday morning, Dec 6, 2009, the LHC achieved for the first time 900 GeV collisions under stable-beam conditions. This allowed ATLAS to fully ramp the high voltage of the inner most pixel and silicon-strip tracking detectors. The following displays show events from run 141749 taken during this period.

Candidate Z decays to leptons, produced in association with jets. Candidate for Z→μμ decay, with the Z produced in association with three jets, collected on 10 May 2010.
In the xy projection, the 144 GeV transverse momentum of the Z boson is especially apparent. The muon transverse momenta are 96 GeV and 68 GeV, and their invariant mass is 79 GeV. The harder muon has left a significant energy deposit (see lego-plot projection), presumably through bremsstrahlung; this is not included in the standard Z mass calculation. The jet transverse energies are 168, 105, and 45 GeV.

ATLAS event containing four muons. This event is consistent with coming from two Z particles decaying: both Z particles decay to two muons each. Such events are produced by Standard Model processes without Higgs particles. They are also a possible signature for Higgs particle production, but many events must be analysed together in order to tell if there is a Higgs signal. This view is a zoom into the central part of the detector. The four muons are picked out as red tracks. Other tracks and deposits of energy in the calorimeters are shown in yellow.

ATLAS event containing two electrons and two muons. This event is consistent with coming from two Z particles decaying: one Z decays to two muons, the other to two electrons. Such events are produced by Standard Model processes without Higgs particles. They are also a possible signature for Higgs particle production, but many events must be analysed together in order to tell if there is a Higgs signal. The two muons are picked out as red tracks penetrating right through the detector. The two electrons are picked out as green tracks in the central, inner detector, matching narrow green clusters of energy in the barrel part of the calorimeters. The inset at the bottom right shows a map of the energy seen in the detector: the two big yellow spikes correspond to the two electrons.

An event where two energetic photons ("gammas") are produced in a proton-proton collision in ATLAS. Many events of this type are produced by well-understood Standard Model processes ("backgrounds") which do not involve Higgs particles. A small excess of events of this type with similar masses could indicate evidence for Higgs particle production, but any specific event is most likely to be from the background. The photons are indicated, in the different projections and views, by the clusters of energy shown in yellow.
