The CMS detector is built around a huge solenoid magnet.
This takes the form of a cylindrical coil
of superconducting cable that generates a magnetic field of 4 teslas, about 100 000 times that of the Earth.
The magnetic field is confined by a steel 'yoke' that forms the bulk of the detector's weight of 12 500 tonnes.
An unusual feature of the CMS detector is that instead of being built in-situ underground, like the other giant
detectors of the LHC experiments, it was constructed on the surface, before being lowered underground in 15
sections and reassembled.
More than 2000 scientists collaborate in CMS.

Collider Detector at FermilabCDF, the Collider Detector at Fermilab, is an experiment at Fermi National Laboratory near Chicago, which is currently home to the world's most powerful particle accelerator called the Tevatron. The Tevatron accelerates protons and antiprotons close to the speed of light, and then makes them collide head-on inside the CDF detector. The CDF detector is used to study the products of such collisions; by doing this we try to reconstruct what happened in the collision and ultimately try to figure out how matter is put together and what forces nature uses to create the world around us!
