Huge bundle of particles with many trapezoids

  • Whoandwhatitis by Whoandwhatitis moderator

    This image is much different from most others. There are a whole lot of particles from one OCV which seems to produce two bundles of particles, each with a lot of particles.

    However, I don't see any indication of bottom quarks or other especially-energetic particles.

    Also, there are trapezoids all over the detector. This is one of the most odd I've ever seen on this project.What happened in the collision here?

    The trapezoids are representations of "jets" of energy being deposited i the calorimeters. Why there is quite so much energy, but rather few tracks, is something I don't really understand. It's certainly unusual in that regard. We'll want to follow up on this one, I think...

    I see that this one was automatically included in my 'Very Interesting Signals' collection, which is supported by a tag group:

    Includes #bundle and #ocv and #lots


    If this object proves to be interesting in some way, then maybe these others could help provide more information.
