The CMS Experiment at the LHC

Since the very first measurements with \(\alpha \) particles performed by H. Geiger, E. Marsden and E. Rutherford [1], scattering experiments have become one of the most important tools in experimental particle physics. Increasing collision energies allow to resolve smaller and smaller structures, and to probe the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions.
