 Evidence for proton-tagged, central semi-exclusive production of high-mass muon pairs at 13 TeV with the CMS-TOTEM Precision Proton Spectrometer /CMS Collaboration ; TOTEM Collaboration The process $pp \rightarrow p \mu^+\mu^- p^{(*)}$ has been observed at the LHC for dimuon masses larger than $110~\mathrm{GeV}$ in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=13~\mathrm{TeV}$. Here $p^{(*)}$ indicates that the second proton is undetected, and either remains intact or dissociates into a low-mass state $p^{*}$.

 LHC Optics Measurement with Proton Tracks Detected by the Roman Pots of the TOTEM Experiment / Nemes, Frigyes J (Wigner Research Centre for Physics, RMKI, Budapest, Hungary; and Department of Atomic Physics, ELTE University, Budapest, Hungary.) ; Niewiadomski, Hubert (Case Western Reserve University, Dept. of Physics, Cleveland, OH, USA.) Precise knowledge of the beam optics at the LHC is crucial to fulfill the physics goals of the TOTEM experiment, where the kinematics of the scattered protons is reconstructed with the near-beam telescopes – so-called Roman Pots (RP).
