The University of Bath has become an official member of Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) research group at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland.

The successful bid was led by Professor Manuch Soleimani from the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

The University has become one of a few select UK institutions involved in CERN CMS.

The bid was approved by the CMS board, as well as current CMS members in their February board meeting.

Commenting on the announcement, Professor Soleimani, said: "This brings great opportunity for our University to be involved in research developing next generation of detectors, strengthening UK's involvement, as well as offering great opportunities for our undergraduate and postgraduate students, which will come with our membership."
