The ATLAS detector on a smartphone

About LHsee
LHsee is an educational tool available for Android OS mobile smartphones and tablet PCs. It has been custom designed to provide an accurate and interactive visual representation of complex high-energy physics events recorded by the ATLAS detector. Features include live streaming and reconstruction of collision data from the CERN Large Hadron Collider.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is one of the most inspirational science projects of our time. The machine has been designed to address fundamental questions about the nature of our universe, including the origin of mass, the difference between matter and antimatter and evidence for grand unified theories. The experiment has captured the public imagination and offers an unparalleled oppor tun ity to explain science to a wide r ange of audiences.
Even before the first operations of the LHC (in September 2008) a variety of introductory and educational resources had been produced [1]. Modern mobile smartphones (and tablet PCs) offer a new and highly capable platform for science education.
Such devices typically include 3G/WiFi internet access, dedicated graphics hardware and touchscreen control….
