Description : A powerful and lightweight CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) experiment event display
iSpy a general-purpose visualisation program that is mainly used
as a CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) experiment event display for
online detector monitoring, offline reconstruction, physics
analysis, and public relations.
The iSpy philosophy is to deliver a user-focused high-quality and
performant interactive application that is very easy to install
and use on multiple platforms.
CMS is a high-energy physics experiment in Cessy, France, part of
the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.
It uses a general-purpose detector to investigate a wide range of
physics, including the search for the Higgs boson, extra dimensions,
and particles that could make up dark matter. Although it has the
same scientific goals as the ATLAS experiment, it uses different
technical solutions and design of its detector magnet system to
CMS stands for Compact Muon Solenoid: compact because it is â??smallâ??
for its enormous weight, muon for one of the particles it detects,
and solenoid for the coil inside its huge superconducting magnet.
