experiments and the preaccelerators. The path of the protons (and ions) begins at linear accelerators (marked p
, respectively). They continue their way in the booster (the small unmarked cicle), in the Proton Synchrotron (PS
), in the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS
) and finally they get into the 27-km-long LHC tunnel. In the LHC there are 4 large experiments marked with yellow dots and text.
