and so have the LEP experiments. Refer to the official information when needed. More
and more links within CERN Webpages are broken, and not much
can be done about it.
and Experiments (18 pg) + Figures.
On the purpose and methods of High-Energy Physics Research.
Somewhat abstract and conceptual. Read before sleeping!

CMS Technical Description -
Figures. See if

The LHC String
(3 pg). A “string” consisting of two LHC magnets and
a quadrupole - i.e. half of an LHC magnetic “cell” -
