Imhol egy masik jo pelda: szerepel rajta az intezet nevenek roviditese, tovabba egy jellemzo kep is a hatterben. (A bal oldali mezo a logo, azt hasznaljuk posztereken.) Esetleg el kellene gondolkodni az RMKI profiljan es egy esetleges nevcseren is. Ki foglalkozik meg reszecske es magfizikaval? Paran biztosan, de en ugy latom, hogy a fuzios plazamafizika, a szilardtestfizika, az altalanos relativitaselmelet, az urfizikia es a biofizika a legintenzivebben kutatott teruletek az intezeten belul.

PREHISTORY Starting points in the 50’s: a) Hungarian “MANHATTAN-Project” KFKI (1950) and ATOMKI (1954) b) Experimental Cosmic Ray Physics Research reactor, MeV accelerators, nuclear electronics and detectors Beginning of HEP in the 60’s: JINR-Dubna membership: HU was providing personel and instrumentation Most active period 1969-1973 Serpuhov 70 GeV accelerator Hungarian colony in Dubna includes more than 50 scientists and engineers First contacts to CERN a) CERN-Dubna agreement (1964) Some people of Dubna staff can visit CERN b) HAS-CERN : “scientific visitor” agreement (1970) 1-2 year fellowship for theorists and experimentalists alternatively
LEP-L3 the first Hungarian CERN experiment By special grant of HAS a Hungarian team as official BUDAPEST group from the beginning became the member of the L3 experiment The grant was just enough to cover the obligatory yearly “running cost”, but no resource for construction. Minor hardware contribution was achieved to the SMD Si-detector monitor system. Main contribution: core-software development, data processing, physical analysis In 1995 the group was reorganized to concentrate for gamma-gamma analysis. Due to the complexity of the analysis software, effective work was only possible during the short 1-2 months visiting periods of the Hungarian team members to CERN. The home computer base was under-developped to install the necessary program packages. In 1999 the ATOMKI-Debrecen University team also became an official member.
What did we learned from L3? By the contemporary Hungarian standards the team got relatively large financial support, but the real sum turned out to be marginal compared to western levels of funding. Most of the team members had no real direct affiliation to any subdetector, they were drifting around according to occasional short-term grants. E.g. the key person of the gamma-gamma project left for OPAL continuing his successful carrier there. Thus we reached only 1 complete PhD and 2 “half” ones. Trivial conclusion: We missed the critical mass BUT! There is no universal way to the success. Let us try some variants!!!

The CRITICAL POINT’s puzzle is well characterized by the letter of leading theorists to the SPSLC Committee which was the highest scientific decision body of CERN at that time:

9 Strong interactions and the interface of particle and nuclear physics A variety of important research lines are at the interface between particle and nuclear physics requiring dedicated experiments; Council will seek to work with NuPECC in areas of mutual interest, and maintain the capability to perform fixed target experiments at CERN. QCD plays a multiple role in particle physics. On one side QCD is one of the cornerstones of the SM, and in spite of its phenomenological successes more work is necessary to fully establish its quantitative predictions in the long-distance and strongly interacting regimes. On the other side, QCD is a crucial tool for the measurement of the electroweak parameters of the SM (e.g. the quark masses and mixings) as well as to search for BSM phenomena, both at low energies (e.g. in the decays of K or B mesons) and at high energies, where the production of new heavy particles may be hidden by large QCD backgrounds, and often manifests itself in the form of multijet signatures. Finally, QCD leads to new states of matter, when temperature and densities exceed the values beyond which quarks and gluons are confined inside hadrons. Progress in the field of strong interactions, guaranteed by a diversified programme of national or regional facilities operating at different energies and with different beams, plays an important role in the future of particle physics. In parallel, a fixed-target programme, to specifically address the problem of identifying a QCD critical point by improving and diversifying the available data, could be important. The ability to carry out fixed-target experiments at CERN with heavy ions beams should be preserved. STRATEGY DOCUMENT 14 July 2006, Lisbon

From this table one should notice the fact that in the huge CERN Laboratory exists only 12 officially acknowledged high energy physics experiments. There is 6 planned experiments at LHC: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, LHCb, LHCf and TOTEM and an other 6 registered experiments at SPS: CNGS1(OPERA), CNGS2(ICARUS), NA58(COMPASS), NA61(SHINE), NA62, NA63. Hungary has relative large groups in CMS and ALICE, but they represent only a small minority amongst the few thousand participants. In the small SHINE/NA61 experiment already 10 people represent a strong contingent, but our role even more significantbecause this is the only experiment in CERN where Hungarians are occupying leading positions: G Vesztergombi together with M. Gazdzidki are the spokespersons, responsible separately for the proton- and heavy ion physics, respectively. Beyond these administrative posts it is more important that the position of RUN coordination is also in Hungarian hand. Z. Fodor (RMKI) is the Technical Coordinator, who is the commander of the real experimental work on the floor, knowing all the technical and scientific details.
Detector development – engineering The NA49 data acquisition rate was limited to 4 - 5 Hz with a duty factor of 25% (effective rate around 1 Hz) and that seriously limited the statistics that could be collected for all measurements, including the high pT measurements. With this upgrade we can achieve a readout rate in excess of 40 Hz. An additional factor of 2 will be gained by reducing the sampling frequency of drift electrons. An overall readout rate exceeding 80 Hz will be thus achieved. With the typical 25% duty factor of the SPS that will result in an effective rate in excess of 20 Hz. A total of 240 MB and 8 CD were produced. In ALICE detector one finds similar TPC as in SHINE, which has about only 3 times more (500,000) pads, but using 500 DDL channels and 200 CPU units to collect the data. In case of the SHINE detector, however, one uses about 60 times smaller number (8) of DDL channels and 200 times less number of CPUs, i.e. the new SHINE-DAQ system capable to handle similar order of magnitude data volume by a SINGLE COMPUTER!!!
