Frigyes János Nemes won one of the efficiency awards of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research’s (CERN) Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment.
According to home.cern, the CMS is a general-purpose detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It has a broad physics programme ranging from studying the Standard Model (including the Higgs boson) to searching for extra dimensions and particles that could make up dark matter. The CMS experiment is one of the largest international scientific collaborations in history,
involving 5,000 particle physicists, engineers, technicians, students, and support staff
from 200 institutes in 50 countries.
According to Nepszava, the award Mr Nemes won was founded in 2007 to acknowledge and reward individual efficiency. Only those can get it who have produced constant high-level output; thus, they have contributed to the success of the experiment.

In 2020, only 28 researchers got the award out of the above-mentioned 5,000. The justification for the award is that Mr Nemes received it because he was extremely successful in analyses based on the data of the precision proton spectrometer (PPS), and his relevant results can also be used by their colleagues.
Frigyes János Nemes is a research fellow in the Femtoscopy Research Group of Wigner Research Centre for Physics’ Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics. He got his PhD at the Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest) in 2015 and is a member of CERN’s CMS and TOTEM teams.
