Timeline of a discovery

The ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC have produced an animated GIF showing how their signal for the Higgs boson built up as they gathered data.

There are a couple of different ones, for different decay modes — basically, the signal that they use to identify the Higgs

Find them here:
ATLAS: Higgs -> Two photons: http://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/AtlasPublic/HiggsPublicResults//Hgg-FixedScale-Short2.gif
ATLAS: Higgs -> Four Leptons http://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/AtlasPublic/HiggsPublicResults//4l-FixedScale-NoMuProf2.gif
ATLAS: Higgs -> Two WW: https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/AtlasPublic/HiggsPublicResults//WW-FixedScale.gif

CMS: Higgs -> Four Leptons http://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/CMSPublic/Hig13002TWiki/HZZ4l_animated.gif

They’re nice to look at no? I’ll explain what they’re showing in a later post
