Particle physics, particle detectors

Salvatore Rappoccio is an expert on particle detectors and subatomic and elementary particles, such as protons, neutrons, electrons, quarks, neutrinos, muons and exotic particles.

He can comment on particle physics in general, as well as on the development of particle detectors and the results of experiments conducted with these devices.

Rappoccio is a member of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) collaboration, a team of thousands of scientists who run the CMS, one of two major general-purpose particle detectors at the Large Hadron Collider, the largest particle accelerator in the world. Researchers use the CMS to search for evidence of new particles and exotic physics.
