May 7, 2020

Hungarian physicist János Frigyes Nemes has won the CMS Experiment Award of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the CMS Success Award.

CMS is one of the major international experiments of the Geneva-based CERN, the accelerator of the LHC of the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The award was established by the CMS Experiment in 2007 to recognize individual accomplishments, and can be won by members of the experiment who have contributed significant and lasting individual results to the success of the experiment, according to a Wigner Physics Research Center statement to the Hungarian news agency MTI.

As they write, the prestige of the award is also reflected in the fact that almost 5,500 of the approximately 15,000 people working at CERN are members of the CMS experiment and only 28 of them have received similar recognition this year for their achievements in 2019.

According to the judges, János Frigyes Nemes won the 2019 CMS Performance Award for his innovative, original and careful determination of the LHC optics from the PPS data, a key ingredient for all analyses based on PPS information.

János Frigyes Nemes is a research assistant at the Femtoscopy Research Group at the Particle and Nuclear Physics Research Institute of the Wigner Physics Research Center. He obtained his PhD in 2015 from Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE). He is a Hungarian member of the CERN LHC accelerator CMS and TOTEM experiments.
