Iranian Researcher Among CMS AwardeesIranian Researcher Among CMS Awardees

Esmaeel Eskandari, a Ph.D student of Tehran’s Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM) is among the awardees of the CMS Fundamental Physics Special Recognition Award (2015).

Prof. Joseph Incandela, one of the most outstanding CMS researchers, on behalf of the CMS Fundamental Physics Scholarship Committee, handed over Eskandari’s commendation plaque during the CMS week awards ceremony on December 7, IRNA reported.

Eskandari was awarded for his article ‘Search for Resonant and Non-Resonant Higgs Pair Production in bbVV Decay Channel through Semi-Letonic Final States’.

The CMS Fundamental Physics Scholarship Award started in 2013, is a prestigious annual award commending the achievements in experiments of CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid, a particle detector that is designed to see a wide range of particles and phenomena produced in high-energy collisions at the CERN Large Hadron Collider) in experimental particle physics. It comprises two awards, CMS Fundamental Physics Scholarship Award granted to a few outstanding young researchers and CMS FPS Special Recognition Awards given to a number of talented young researchers.

The award is organized by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, and the awardees are selected by a CMS Fundamental Physics Scholar international committee.

At CERN, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.

Earlier in 2013, Reza Goldouzian, Ph.D. student in IPM was one of the awardees of FPS Special Recognition for his article ‘Search for FCNC process in single top production in association with a Higgs boson’.
